Envisioning a new “future”

Presenting NTT DATA’s vision for a new society and associated initiatives in the age of “life with the coronavirus”

COVID-19 vaccinations are moving forward, but due to powerful variants and the resumption of people’s activities, infection numbers have once again risen around the globe. We are sincerely grateful to all of the medical personnel responding to the situation at the front lines.
On the other hand, both government and companies have begun to take proactive, concrete measures toward digital transformations in order to resolve issues which have become apparent in the COVID-19 pandemic. Moving forward, there will surely be an increase in the trend of stakeholders from industries and domains that were previously independent connecting, one after another, to form a single structure, and engaging in mutual cooperation. I feel that this is a true digital transformation. Through connection, services which did not exist up to now will emerge, enhancing the convenience and richness of each person’s work, as well as of each person’s daily life.
Those who will bear the central role in the realization of this movement will be a new type of people who possess abilities that differ from those needed for the construction of conventional information systems. They will be able to make free use of abilities related to the core of digital services, such as design and new technologies, in order to promote digital transformations. Further, they will be able to deftly use the structures they have created to make use of the lessons they have learned in their next endeavor. NTT DATA is advancing forth to cultivate the personnel who will handle such tasks, both internally and together with its customers, and send those personnel out to further accelerate the changes of our current society.
Toward the realization of a connected society, we want to make contributions to all people and to society while naturally also producing results in terms of business. With that mindset, NTT DATA is advancing, one step at a time.

Realizing the New Society Envisioned by NTT DATA

At NTT DATA, we strive to realize a new society by resolving problems through our business and pursuing self-transformation.

Two keys to creating a new society
The importance of continuously creating and applying new mechanisms

At NTT DATA, we believe two factors are vital for the creation of a new society: “design” and “thorough application of system data.”

“Design” starts with considering the perspectives of consumers and others among society’s various stakeholders. It then moves to envisioning the mechanisms of an all-encompassing and integrated society by taking the concerns of each stakeholder into account.

On top of this, design that looks to the “thorough application of system data” is necessary for improving the value of created mechanisms and continuously evolving them into even better ones.

The mechanisms required will change constantly with time and circumstances.

Thus, stopping once a design is completed is not the way to bring about the desired future. What is needed instead is a continuously cyclical approach that includes application as well as unceasing reappraisal to enhance value.

The human assets needed to envision and realize a new society

Envisioning a new society and then translating it into reality by fully leveraging digital technologies will require “architects.”

We use the word “top architect” to refer to a person who sees things from a multidimensional perspective without being bound by conventional values, and who is capable of conceptualizing what an integrated society should look like.

“Architects” are abundantly experienced human resources who possess specialized knowledge, and it is they who will design specific mechanisms for the society that top architects envision and drive its actualization.

Top architects and a legion of architects, each possessing his or her own specialty. We believe the work of both will merge and create a new society for the future.
As a “team of architects” possessing expertise in diverse fields, NTT DATA will do its part to make this happen.
