PLANO, TX – August 4, 2020 – NTT DATA Services, a digital business and IT services leader, today announced it has the SAP on Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization, a validation of a solution partner’s capability to deliver high-quality services in a specific solution area.
In February 2020 SAP released a statement that the company will provide mainstream maintenance until end of 2027 for SAP Business Suite 7 core applications. As core SAP products are being re-optimized for the SAP HANA database, many enterprises are looking for a partner with advanced skills to migrate their existing SAP environment to the cloud.
That proven success is what led Joyson Safety Systems (JSS), a leading global supplier of mobility safety systems, to select NTT DATA to implement SAP S/4HANA on Microsoft Azure. JSS chose NTT DATA as their services partner because of the company’s deep automotive industry knowledge, strong experience in digital transformation projects, global presence and cultural fit.
“The SAP on Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization demonstrates NTT DATA’s deep knowledge, extensive experience and proven success in implementing SAP solutions on Microsoft Azure,” said Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner (OCP) at Microsoft Corp. “NTT DATA’s Azure expertise and commitment to service excellence positions them well to help clients accelerate their cloud journey.”
“The global pandemic has magnified the importance of cloud-based technologies and is driving businesses to choose the cloud as the standard platform for achieving their business goals,” said Emily Lewis-Pinnell, Vice President, Cloud Solutions, NTT DATA Services. “Many of our pandemic response solutions follow SAP’s Value Engineering Methodology and are built on Microsoft Azure to help our clients sustain operations and ultimately grow in these uncertain times.”
The SAP on Azure Advanced Specialization achievement is a continuation of NTT DATA’s collaboration with Microsoft. In June 2020, NTT DATA announced a collaboration to enable new digital solutions with a focus on accelerating clients’ digital transformation programs with Microsoft Azure and other technologies. NTT DATA is a Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Services Provider and has achieved the Microsoft Gold Cloud Competency, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world.
Based on NTT DATA’s established public cloud expertise, Solutions Review named it as one of the best Microsoft Azure managed services providers of 2020, and the company was recently recognized in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Professional and Managed Services, Worldwide.
