NTT DATA recognized by Microsoft for advanced AI expertise

NTT DATA becomes one of the first Microsoft partners worldwide to achieve the Build and Modernize AI Apps with Microsoft Azure valuable advanced specialization proving extensive knowledge in the design of solutions and deployment of projects with Azure Kubernetes Service, Cosmos DB, Red Hat OpenShift, Azure Spring Apps on intelligent solutions deployed using artificial intelligence. This specialization acknowledges NTT DATA's ability to guide its customers in the design, modernization, development, and implementation of solutions using artificial intelligence as the leading technology.  

Particularly, this specialization enables partners with an active Solutions Partner for Data & AI (Azure) or Solutions Partner for Digital & App Innovation (Azure) status to further differentiate their organizations, demonstrate their capabilities, and build stronger connections with customers. Notably, this recognition marks an important milestone for NTT DATA, as Microsoft highlighted that it is the first company in the UK to achieve this recognition.

This Microsoft specialization strengthens the relationship as a partner alongside NTT DATA, which from 2023 is a Global System Integrator thanks to the collaborative success in the Cloud domain and the constant drive to use cutting-edge technology to bridge the gap between people and the digital world, with a firm commitment to creating a sustainable future.  

In addition, in terms of advanced specializations, the company has obtained and renewed another five over the last year - Cloud Security, Kubernetes on Microsoft Azure, DevOps with GitHub on Microsoft Azure, Migrate Enterprise Apps to Microsoft Azure and AI and Machine Learning on Microsoft Azure. This means that, as of today, NTT DATA has a total of eleven advanced specializations from Microsoft and manages to climb positions in the market to compete with other players under the same conditions.  

"Achieving six new Microsoft recognitions in the last year, including one of the most valuable, encourages us to continue working following our commitment to deploy solutions for our clients with the most advanced technology. Our unwavering commitment to innovation and our strategic alliance with Microsoft puts us at the forefront of emerging technologies.
