PLANO, TEXAS – Aug. 14, 2019 – NTT DATA, a recognized leader in global technology services, was named a “Leader” in the recently published report, “The Forrester WaveTM: Application Modernization and Migration Services, Q3 2019.” Forrester used a 26-point criteria to evaluate the 14 most significant providers and distinguished Leaders based on their breadth of capabilities across application modernization and migration.
The report recognized NTT DATA’s strong vision for the future of modernization and migration services, as well as stating the company is a good fit with its target vertical industries, including banking, health sciences, manufacturing, public sector, automotive and telecommunications. In addition, Forrester noted that clients find NTT DATA flexible and responsive to the use of offshore resources and capable of serving as a true partner, while offering no apparent weaknesses in the firm’s overall value proposition.
“NTT DATA’s modernization and migration philosophy centers on vertical industry focus, geographic transparency, and the importance of recognizing the convergence of applications and infrastructure,” wrote author Bill Martorelli, Principal Analyst, Infrastructure & Operations, Forrester in the report. “Its Transformation Manager offers a set of technologies that include an object repository and a rules extraction and analytics engine, as well as a linking capability used in the firm’s modernization engagements.”
NTT DATA’s approach to modernization includes simplifying the IT environment to leverage emerging technologies, such as cloud, mobility, and virtualization. In addition, with the company’s Application Transformation Lab, NTT DATA focuses on delivering incremental improvements for continuous digital improvement, which enables clients to avoid long migration projects that hinder the full potential of business applications.
“While legacy platforms typically contain critical IP, they routinely lack the agility necessary to thrive and grow in today’s market,” said Emily Lewis-Pinnell, Vice President, Cloud and Application Transformation, NTT DATA Services. “Industrialized modernization of applications to create agility while maximizing IP is one of the most directly impactful contributions we can make to improve client success.”
