PLANO, Texas – March 18, 2021 – NTT DATA, a global digital business and IT services provider, today announced it has achieved Snowflake’s Elite Services Partner designation. Elite Partner is the highest level in the Snowflake Partner Network and represents NTT DATA’s commitment to enabling digital transformation for clients with Snowflake’s Data Cloud.
“Snowflake’s Data Cloud enables organizations to mobilize their data, including partners and third-party data sources, in their digital transformation journeys,” Colleen Kapase, Vice President, WW Partner & Alliances, Snowflake said. “NTT DATA’s achievement as an Elite Partner and their acquisition of Hashmap is a tribute to their commitment to helping organizations become successful on Snowflake with proven solutions and deep technical expertise. We look forward to continued collaboration and partnership with NTT DATA to delight customers.”
This recognition reflects the growth of NTT DATA’s strategic partnership with Snowflake and continues the company’s focus on building a trusted data foundation to operationalize and scale artificial intelligence (AI) for its clients. The achievement is also a continuation of NTT DATA’s investment in expanding its digital portfolio capabilities globally to help clients adopt and leverage modern, data-driven cloud solutions and AI applications.
“Snowflake’s near-unlimited scalability and concurrency makes it an ideal data platform to enable our clients’ digital success now and in the future,” said Eric Clark, Chief Digital & Strategy Officer, NTT DATA Services. “NTT DATA is continuing to invest in innovative solutions and services, both through our own IP and through partnerships and acquisitions that accelerate our clients’ modernization journey.”
Kazumasa Taninaka, Head of AI & IoT Division, Business Solutions Sector, NTT DATA Japan said, “With the growing interest in AI and data democratization, Snowflake is an extremely important technology partner for a trusted data foundation because of its high performance and flexible architecture. Our partnership with Snowflake enables us to help our customers create value through data utilization. We integrate data & Intelligence technologies in a way that is easy for our customers to use and generate outcomes.”
NTT DATA continues to scale its cloud, data, analytics, and solutions through the Global AI Center of Excellence to help clients manage increasing amounts of data within the cloud and as part of broader transformation initiatives. In a recent study by NTT DATA, “The Big Pivot: From Data Islands to Data Insights,” 79% of executives said they recognize the value of data but only 10% are very effective at using it to adopt new business models and enter new markets.
Recently NTT DATA Services completed the acquisition of Hashmap. Together with Hashmap’s insight and deep technical expertise in a modern cloud data environment and NTT DATA’s strong digital transformation capabilities, the duo is positioned to help clients successfully migrate to Snowflake’s platform and leverage the power of the Data Cloud so organizations can get the best business value from their investment.
