TOKYO – March 19, 2024 – NTT DATA, a global digital business and IT services leader, today announced that it has been named a Leader in two IDC MarketScape reports evaluating service providers' application modernization capabilities serving AWS and Microsoft Azure cloud platforms. NTT DATA was one of three companies named to the Leaders Category. A total of nine service providers were evaluated for the report.

As enterprises put a higher priority on digital transformation, many are turning to service providers to help manage and modernize applications in fast-changing IT environments. Application modernization initiatives are taking on more strategic importance, creating competition for services such as application instance consolidation and migration to cloud infrastructure.

In its two reports – IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Application Modernization Services to AWS 2024 Vendor Assessment (doc #US50607523, January 2024) and IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Application Modernization Services to Azure 2024 Vendor Assessment (doc #US50607623, January 2024) – NTT DATA is named as a Leader. Both reports noted that NTT DATA integrates design-led innovation and custom software development to offer outcome-centric contract models and intellectual property powers the firm's modernization capability and product catalog.

"As clients migrate more resources to AWS and Microsoft Azure, they can't afford to have their legacy applications holding them back, creating barriers to innovation," said Hidehiko Tanaka, Senior Vice President, Head of Technology and Innovation General Headquarters, NTT DATA Group Corporation. "We believe having been recognized as a Leader in application modernization services for both platforms shows that NTT DATA has the unique IP, the established methodologies and the targeted skills to make clients more agile and responsive as they reshape their businesses for the future."

"As part of its MarketScape research, IDC found NTT DATA possesses several key strengths. For application modernization services to AWS, IDC found NTT DATA possessed strengths in modernizing ISV applications like Oracle, Microsoft, and Adobe to AWS. Additionally, NTT DATA showed strengths across Microsoft competencies on AWS as well as Oracle, and SaaS Builders on AWS," explained Pete Marston, IDC Research Director.

"As part of its MarketScape research, IDC found NTT DATA possesses several key strengths. For application modernization services to Azure, IDC found NTT DATA possessed strengths in modernizing collaboration and CRM workloads on Azure. The provider also demonstrated strength in modernizing Oracle applications to Azure as well as its service delivery model in on-site and near-shore services delivery." explained Pete Marston, IDC Research Director.

As a recognized leader in application services, NTT DATA works across platforms to simplify IT environments, helping clients get the most out of game-changing technologies, including cloud, mobility and virtualization.
