Application Development and Management

Don't let your applications portfolio hold you back

Architecture Strategy and Design

Systems need to be architected from the start to support your enterprise cost-effectively today, while allowing easy adaptability tomorrow. NTT DATA’s IT architects will work closely with you to align your business strategies and supporting technologies. In addition, our application design foundation and technology-neutral approach allows us to provide multiple innovative architectural options that can help you build a lasting, adaptable IT foundation to support continuing growth. NTT DATA's enterprise architecture and planning methodology is customisable to fit one or more divisions of an enterprise (compared to competitor offerings that are domain template-based). It provides a comprehensive business-user-system focus to architecture design (vs. the traditional business-system focus).

The result is improved product quality, more useful functionality, lower cost and a higher ROI.

Quality Assurance and Testing

Organisations everywhere are under increasing pressure to make their business more efficient by using software innovation to drive growth and respond more swiftly to changing markets.
