Tokyo, June 24, 2019 — NTT DATA, a leading IT services provider, today

and knowhow for the containerization of applications and DevOps processes. Going forward,
CloudHedge’s advanced technologies will be integrated with NTT DATA’s digitalization technologies,
focusing on legacy digital integration utilizing existing IT assets to robustly accelerate the
digital transformation of diverse NTT DATA clients worldwide.
CloudHedge has developed a platform to automate analysis, migration and containerization of
applications from datacenter to cloud, which have been adopted by a number of corporations.
NTT DATA Asia Pacific, an NTT DATA company, and CloudHedge have jointly engaged in container

just-announced stock acquisition, NTT DATA now aims to further strengthen this collaborative

Container technology realizes an isolated application operating environment by separating user
space on a host operating system for efficient application development, including lower overhead
and reduced system resources compared to server virtualization. The technology also offers high
portability to enable contents structured in a container to be packaged and moved.
DevOps (development and operations) is a way to combine methodologies, tools, etc., to facilitate
cooperation between development and operations divisions, for example, when releasing updates in
short cycles, to maximize the value of IT systems.
Legacy digital integration is a combination of technologies and methodologies for digitization
while continuing to use existing IT assets. NTT DATA assists enterprise customers with their
digital transformations, mainly by providing legacy digital integration through a combination
of digital-development methods, consulting, and technologies and knowhow for containerization and more.
