NTT DATA Corporation

NTT DATA Group has formulated and will implement the Medium-Term Management Plan for 2012 through 2015 as follows for the issues requiring attention.

Issues Requiring Attention

Although IT investments in Japan are ceasing their fall, it is expected that they will remain restrained. Meanwhile, global IT investments, mainly in emerging markets, are expected to continue on a strong trend. Given that our customers are accelerating their movement into the global market, the NTT DATA Group needs to expand its businesses in the global market.

In the IT service market in Japan, due to the diversification and sophistication of the needs of society and our customers, there is an increasing demand for services which can be used as necessary without owning a system, as well as services that match the expectations for price reduction and shorter delivery periods. Therefore, the issue that the NTT DATA Group needs to work on is the expansion of diverse IT services that can respond to changes in the market rather than a business structure that depends on system integration.

The NTT DATA Group has rapidly expanded its size through measures such as capital alliances. In order to take advantage of its larger size, the Group must enhance corporate governance, after which it must promote more efficient utilization of resources and the creation of synergy from the perspective of group-wide optimization.

Medium- to Long-Term Corporate Strategies

For the abovementioned issues, the NTT DATA Group has formulated and will implement the Medium-Term Management Plan for 2012 through 2015 as follows.

3 focus fields

Expansion of new fields and reinforcement of product competitiveness

In response to our customers’ expectations of price reduction, the NTT DATA Group will work on broadening solutions to reduce IT costs, such as cloud computing and AMO, while seeking to sophisticate and diversify the services provided in response to the need of customers to apply IT to more advanced and complicated business operations, such as business analytics and core business BPO. In addition, the Group will aim to upgrade and expand businesses that bring sustainable growth to our revenue by developing new businesses, such as M2M clouds and robotics, and by using its resources in areas with the potential for growth in existing businesses and for increase in the market share.

The Group will also invest aggressively in expanding new businesses and strengthening product competitiveness, through such measures as improvement of software production technology (software development automation) and the R&D of advanced technologies in cooperation with universities and other organizations.

Expansion, enhancement and reinforcement of global business

The NTT DATA Group will aim to cover uncharted areas in order to support customers’ entries into the global market and provide services to overseas markets with growth potential. Moreover, the Global One Team will share our core solutions, such as SAP and telecoms, to further enhance and reinforce global businesses.

Pursuit of overall optimization

The NTT DATA Group will work on improving operational efficiency by leveraging the size of our businesses, which was achieved through the global-level standardization, streamlining, and intensification of business operations, as well as reorganization and consolidation of group companies and organizations. The Group will promote further growth through resource allocation based on business portfolios which can respond to the rapidly changing environment.

Objectives of the New Medium-Term Management Plan

Global TOP 5

By evolving from a “corporate group focused on domestic large-scale SI business” into a corporate group which provides a wide range of IT services effectively on a global scale, will provide customers with best-in-class services leveraging scale economy.

Improvement of Corporate Value

By realizing sustainable growth even amid uncertain economic environment through the transformation of business structure to combine investment necessary for business development and further reinforcement of financial foundations, will improve corporate value.
