UK businesses are delivering better employee and customer experiences by taking advantage of the potential of robotics, AI, augmented reality and other fast-growing technologies, with the help of NTT DATA.

NTT DATA’s Government Sector has successfully partnered with a leading provider of standards and auditing to redesign their global reaching website. It is a key tool promoting a great experience for countries interested in services delivered by the UK.

The Department for International Trade (DIT) assisted NTT DATA’s investment journey by providing specialist support and information about the UK’s innovation ecosystem and the best locations for an innovation centre.

The UK is the largest IT services market in Western Europe, which made it an attractive destination for NTT DATA to expand its operations to. The UK’s ecosystem of specialist start-ups, innovators and entrepreneurs make it a competitive market for companies from across the globe.

Fuelled by strong demand in the public services, telecoms, financial services, and insurance industries, NTT DATA has grown at an exponential rate since entering the UK in 1995.

NTT DATA has been growing rapidly since it entered the UK market, with 15-20% year-on-year growth over the last 5 years. Fundamental to this growth is the support received from DIT who have worked with NTT DATA to create high-quality jobs and drive prosperity into communities across the UK, ensuring the benefits of this investment are felt in all four corners of the country. - Simon Williams, NTT DATA UK CEO

With an ever-increasing UK workforce and offices in London, Birmingham and Glasgow, the tech giant is looking to use their £68m investment to:

  • recruit another 350+ people per year in the UK
  • create facilities and centres of excellence across the UK for technology innovation and client excellence
  • expand their start-up partnership programme

The UK is home to the world’s best talent and technological innovation and its internationally recognised universities with technology specialisms are providing the talent to shape the future of technology.
