Nov 4, 2016

NTT DATA Corporation

NTT DATA Corporation has finalized its “New Mid-Term Management Plan (FY 2016-2018)”, which puts the next three years in perspective by taking into consideration its business environment and challenges.

Business environment and pertinent issues

NTT DATA Group has expanded business in the global market, increased its coverage to 185 cities across 45 countries/regions, and thus established a global business foundation. However, our local market presence remains limited, with the exception of Japan, Germany, Spain and Italy. Therefore, in order to continue our growth in the steadily expanding global market, we need to strengthen our local presence and be recognized as a global brand by clients all over the world. To this end, our Group defined a goal as the “Global 2nd Stage” where it aimed by around 2020 to be recognized as a global brand that would achieve estimated consolidated sales of more than 2 trillion yen, with 50% of sales coming from outside Japan.

Furthermore, the advent of a wave of digitalization driven by accelerating technological progress has led to a growing need to expand existing businesses and to create new markets. Therefore, we intend to actively promote innovative technologies in the digital age as well as breakthrough technology in order to enhance our ability of providing value in new markets.

New Mid-Term Management Plan

Given the circumstances above and the effects of the recent large acquisition, our Group has defined the timing for reaching the Global 2nd Stage to be at or before the end of FY 2018, and has developed the three-year New Mid-Term Management Plan between FY 2016 (the year ending in March 2017) and FY 2018 (the year ending in March 2019) as follows:
