With Dell Acquisition, NTT DATA Moves Closer to Being World’s Fifth-Largest Systems Integrator: Tim Conway
#NTTDATA has moved one step closer to becoming the world’s fifth-largest systems integrator. In late March, the systems integration company, which currently ranks No. 6 in the world, announced plans to acquire #DellServices, accelerating the company’s ascent as a global IT services partner. “When you look at what this [Dell Services acquisition] does for us – in the U.S. alone we are projected to be a $5 billion IT services company, part of a Top 10 Global IT services business,” says Tim Conway, president, public sector for NTT DATA. The acquisition, when complete, will benefit federal customers, says Conway, noting they typically see acquisitions focused, in a series of federal pure plays, on where government IT needs currently stand. NTT DATA plans a different approach, says Conway. “What we can do, and what we are putting together, is to provide the services, the innovation, and to a large degree, the re-imagination that’s necessary to take the government to where it is going in the future,” says Conway. That goal includes addressing ever-mounting needs in healthcare and cybersecurity, of course – and leading with innovation driven by the commercial sector.
