NTT DATA Corporation (株式会社エヌ・ティ・ティ・データ Kabushiki-kaisha Enu-tī-tī Dēta ) is a Japanese system integration company and a subsidiary of NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone) Group.
Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Public Corporation, a predecessor of NTT, started Data Communications business in 1967. NTT, following its privatization in 1985, spun off the Data Communications division as NTT Data in 1988, which has now become the largest of the IT Services companies headquartered in Japan.
NTT Data is a publicly traded company, but is about 54 percent owned by NTT. Its business areas are in national and local governments, financial, and telecommunication sectors. According to reports in 2012, Gartner recognizes NTT DATA as the 6th largest IT Services company.
NTT DATA’s history goes back to 1967, when the DATA Communications Bureau was established within the Nippon Telegraph and telephone Public Corporation (now NTT). If this was its "First Founding" as a company, then the "Second Founding" occurred in 1988 when NTT DATA Communications Systems Corporation was spun off into a separate company from NTT. Its "Third Founding" as a company was in 2008, when it marked the 20th anniversary of its establishment. Today, NTT DATA is in the process of becoming a "Global IT Innovator," which together with its customers, uses information technology to change society.
Within Japan, NTT Data has established many joint ventures, such as NTT Data-Sanyo Electric to take care of the IT services of Sanyo electric group. Outside of Japan, NTT Data has its wholly owned subsidiaries or offices in the UK, China, Malaysia, Thailand, India, the US and other countries or regions.
Within the NTT Group, while NTT Comware focuses on the IT services to the Group companies, NTT Data mainly services non-NTT Group companies.
In 2010, NTT Data acquired Intelligroup Inc., an US-based IT consulting and service providing company. After taking over Intelligroup, NTT became the ninth largest software company in the world, worth over $11 billion. 
NTT Data and Boston-based IT Service company Keane agreed to a merger on 29 October 2010. The acquisition is worth over US$1.23 billion. After the acquisition of Keane Inc., NTT DATA became the 8th largest software company in the world, with the annual revenue of $14 billion.
