Boston, MA – May 21, 2013 – The Boston Globe announced today that Keane, Inc., which is now part of NTT DATA Corporation, has been named to the Globe 100 Hall of Fame. The award recognizes the best aggregate performances of the past quarter-century and honors the top performing public companies in Massachusetts. NTT DATA is the world’s 6th largest IT services provider, and has a strong presence in Boston.
“For nearly five decades, Boston has been foundational to the growth of our business,” said John McCain, president and CEO of NTT DATA, Inc. “Starting with our heritage with Keane and now as part of the 6th largest global IT services company in the world as NTT DATA. We are proud to be named to the Globe 100 Hall of Fame and to be recognized as a top performing company.”
Founded in 1965, Keane developed deep expertise in Application Services with distinguished project management credentials and a reputation for high quality services. In December 2010, Keane became a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT DATA Corporation and is now formally named NTT DATA, Inc.
“As it always has, the Globe 100 list reflects the dynamic nature of business not only in Massachusetts but also the world,” said Steve Syre, Boston Globe business columnist and editor of the 2013 Globe 100 Magazine. “Several companies on this year’s list did not even exist when it debuted in 1989. In fact it’s quite possible those companies employ people who weren’t even born in 1989.”
The Globe 100 Magazine was published in The Sunday Boston Globe on May 19, and is online at BostonGlobe.com/Globe100, with some content available at Boston.com/Globe100. Readers can follow updates on Twitter: @GlobeBiz and #globe100.
