TOKYO – June 22, 2023NTT DATA, a global digital business and IT services provider, today announced that NelsonHall has named the company a Leader in its 2023 vendor evaluation for SAP Cloud Migration Services. The Vendor Evaluation & NelsonHall Assessment Tool (NEAT) report evaluated the performance of 12 vendors based on their ability to deliver immediate benefits to clients and meet future client requirements.

NelsonHall ranked NTT DATA as a Leader in each of the report's three market categories: for overall SAP cloud migration services as well as specific capabilities for SAP cloud migration and S/4HANA transformation. Leaders in the three categories were recognized for their ability to excel across a number of criteria, including managing projects, applying a customer-centric approach to service delivery, developing strategy, and managing ongoing upgrades.

Among NTT DATA's strengths, NelsonHall listed the company's investments in growing SAP capabilities, its extensive experience helping clients migrate their workloads, and its broad geographical delivery footprint.

"As more companies migrate their legacy SAP environments to the cloud to increase agility, flexibility and scalability, they need a partner that can move beyond the 'lift-and-shift' mindset to deliver real value in the cloud," said Norbert Rotter, CEO of NTT DATA Business Solutions and EVP NTT DATA, Inc. "We believe being named a leader in NelsonHall's NEAT Report demonstrates that NTT DATA has an in-depth expertise, cloud-focused tools and industry-tailored offerings to optimize their cloud transformations."

In the report, NelsonHall credited NTT DATA with maintaining a strategic focus both on acquiring and developing technologies that will help grow its SAP portfolio. The firm also highlighted NTT DATA's moves to embed automation and core S/4HANA capabilities into cloud migration accelerators and to expand its technical migration engagements to include more value-led advisor services.

NelsonHall projects the SAP cloud migration services market will grow at 16% per year, from just under $34 billion in 2023 to roughly $70 billion by 2027.

"NTT DATA has enhanced its transformation services for cloud migration through strategic acquisitions in Europe and North America," said Eric Levine, IT Services Analyst at NelsonHall. "These broader capabilities (SAP cloud migration and flexible cloud transformation services) further enable its understanding of clients' unique needs and its ability to align with business goals, ensuring a smooth migration process. NTT DATA's comprehensive, scalable tools such as Uptimizer, i-KOU Migration Service, and It.Xtractor, help evaluate clients' SAP landscapes, identifying potential areas for improvement, and enabling successful SAP cloud migrations."
