With a robust presence in Europe, the Americas, and the Asia-Pacific region, NTT DATA has consistently demonstrated its commitment to helping clients navigate the complexities of the digital landscape.


The foundation of NTT DATA dates back over 150 years to Japan's first telegraph service. NTT DATA originated as the Data Communications Division of the Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Public Corporation in 1967. Privatized in 1985, NTT DATA became an independent entity in 1988. The company evolved as a key player in developing large-scale systems, contributing to social infrastructures that facilitated societal advancements.

Between 1988 and 2004, NTT DATA established itself as the largest information and communication service company in Japan. Key milestones include introducing smart cards, virtual shopping malls, and expanding globally. The acquisition of Dell Services in 2016 further strengthened NTT DATA's presence in North America.

NTT DATA entered a global strategy period between 2005 to 2016, aiming to become a "Global IT Innovator." The company expanded its focus beyond Japan, engaging in international markets and technology development. Strategic acquisitions, such as the integration of Spain-based everis Group and the establishment of NTT DATA MHI Systems, marked this era.

Since 2017, NTT Data has been transitioning into the Global 2nd and 3rd stages. The company aims to establish a global brand and become a "Trusted Global Innovator." The company emphasized local presence, digital initiatives, and a global management system. Noteworthy achievements include the launch of the Innovation Center, partnership with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and the shift to a holding company structure in 2023.


NTT DATA is committed to leveraging information technology to create new paradigms and value, contributing to the advancement of a more affluent and harmonious society. Its mission serves as the foundation for management, focusing on the use of IT to realise the dreams of its clients globally through long-term relationships. 

The company strives to develop evolving ecosystems with our clients, utilising leading-edge technologies and fostering creativity through a deep respect for diversity.


As a Trusted Global Innovator, NTT DATA envisions its position ten years from now as a catalyst for realizing the dreams of clients worldwide. It aims to achieve this by nurturing enduring relationships, creating evolving ecosystems through cutting-edge technologies, and enhancing creativity through a culture that values diversity.
