Cloud Transformation with SAP: For Our Customers and For Our Company


In times of globalization and digitization, a business needs to be able to react flexibly and quickly to changing demands. For this, we are witnessing an industry-wide shift to the cloud, with companies adopting more and more cloud solutions into their IT strategies. Cloud-based solutions accelerate everyday processes and are quickly becoming the standard in business – and the NTT DATA Business Solutions cloud transformation with SAP is in full swing.

The digital landscape is forever changing, with new technologies entering the market all the time. Cloud strategies, whether private or public, are becoming an integral part of just about every industry. In business today, cloud-based, hybrid, or multi-cloud business models provide the flexibility, efficiency, and agility needed to remain competitive. NTT DATA Business Solutions has always been a strong on-premise provider but we are seeing more and more interest and opportunities for cloud applications. We continue to work together with SAP to keep up to speed with the latest technology and with trends in the industry. This close SAP partnership allows us to prepare ourselves and our customers for the future.

“Meeting the needs and choices of what customers want: they want flexibility, options, and to grow and invest in their business. Cloud gives them the opportunity for that.”

– Steve Niesman, President & CEO, NTT DATA Business Solutions North America

Transforming Ourselves, Transitioning Our Customers

NTT DATA Business Solutions is moving with the market and undergoing a cloud transformation with SAP. This begins with adopting a greater focus on cloud solutions for our own IT infrastructure, with the latest SAP products at its core. Transforming our internal business structures with solutions such as SAP SuccessFactors means we are able to thoroughly get to know the new technology and processes. This not only allows us to better support customers with their cloud transformation based on SAP, but offers us vast opportunities to engage with them in new ways. On top of our growing on-premise offering, cloud solutions are rapidly advancing our business.

“We see most clients are interested in starting more agile, smaller projects before mobilizing large numbers of resources. They are looking for speed, agility, and value for their investments.”

– Uwe Bohnhorst, COO, NTT DATA Business Solutions

Cloud offers clear advantages in business, enhancing communication and efficiency with flexible line-of-business solutions connected to the SAP Cloud Platform. Companies that have not yet adopted an SAP cloud strategy may find it difficult to know where to start. But that’s exactly the advantage of cloud transformation with SAP: Companies can gradually transition to cloud, scaling the on-premise to cloud-based ratio to suit their business needs. Our experienced consultants can advise you on a select few solutions to try out, before progressing toward becoming a digital enterprise with the full SAP ERP in the cloud. We can help you create a cloud consumption model, tailoring a logical step-by-step process for cloud transformation with SAP and roadmap for the next several years – just as we have done for our own processes.

“It is so important to keep innovating because we are the largest SAP partner globally – and we want it to stay that way.”

– Norbert Rotter, CEO, NTT DATA Business Solutions

Cloud Transformation with SAP: Our Close Partnership

Through collaboration with our customers and our close partnership with SAP, the cloud will help us create great new opportunities for growth and a more open market. During this transition phase, feedback from our customers is important for improving the functionality of cloud software and solutions. We are already receiving positive feedback from our customers about how they are optimizing processes with the technology. Together with SAP and our customers, cloud transformation will provide the chance to re-invent business models and shape the market of the future.
