CF Industries

NTT DATA Business Solutions was familiar with our business and projects, and their project team was very involved. They understood how we worked and were amazing to work with. It was really nice to have that expertise – realizing it’s not always like this. At the end of the day, we were in the driver seat with NTT DATA Business Solutions’ guidance, and that was really helpful.
