itelligence | NTT DATA Business Solutions, one of SAP’s largest partners globally, which generated annual sales of some 1.072 billion euros in calendar year 2020 with SAP-centric consulting, managed and co-innovation services, will operate under the new company name NTT DATA Business SolutionsAG as of April 01, 2021.

All contracts with customers, partners and service providers associated with the group will stay valid.
“Together with NTT DATA, one of the globally most successful IT service providers, we are opening a new chapter in our corporate history today,” says Norbert Rotter, CEO NTT DATA Business Solutions, “that will further increase our visibility. At the same time, our main focus remains on being the globally leading SAP partner and reseller to the SME sector. With the power of NTT DATA, we will make further inroads into the large enterprise market as well. I am sure that the well-respected NTT DATA brand will help us to be more successful and well-known worldwide. We will also attract more high potentials to start their international career at NTT DATA Business Solutions.”
“As a part of the global NTT DATA group, we as NTT DATA Business Solutions MENA, will continue to accelerate the digital transformation of our clients in an even greater extend. Working with passion is in our DNA and this provides us the agility we need. With a global network of professional team alongside, we will pursue our passion to develop tailor-made software solutions to meet the needs of our customers. Our business will benefit from the rebranding and we are therefore planning to create additional jobs and are expanding the possibilities for international careers”, says Dr. Abdulbahri Danış, CEO of NTT DATA Business Solutions in Middle East and North Africa.
