May 18, 2021 - Today, we are thrilled to announce that we are joining forces with NTT DATA, a top six global IT services leader.
Over the last 12 years, Nexient has become the largest 100% U.S.-based digital product development services provider. From the day of our founding, we believed the market needed an alternative to the global offshoring model. While our journey started with providing agile software development services, we quickly realized our clients needed more. We evolved our organization to adopt the product mindset, bringing cross-functional product teams to accelerate application and product development.
Our rally cry, “Life’s too short for crappy software,” has inspired us to build amazing customer experiences so that our clients thrive. We pride ourselves on the ability to anticipate change and adapt to meet the needs of our clients. This has led us to a strategic decision to join NTT DATA, a global IT provider that will accelerate and expand the scope and value we bring to our clients, as well as provide additional career and growth opportunities for our team.
In our next chapter with NTT DATA, we look forward to:
- Reaching a broader base of global clients with our core product services. We will serve as the foundation for NTT Data’s App Dev & Modernization offering; and will partner with their other Digital Consulting & Transformation offerings.
- Access to a global network of additional services that complement the work we do for our clients, like maintenance and support. This is something our clients have been asking for and we will now be able to provide.
- The ability for our clients and employees to have access to NTT Group’s dedication to innovation. NTT Group invested about $3.6 billion in R&D alone last year, with 5,000 research professionals dedicated worldwide.
There are several partners we could have chosen, but NTT Data’s commitment to digital transformation and dedication to the growth and development of team members made us confident they were the right fit for the future. We’ll still live our core values, like being honest challengers and accountable partners that make us, us… but on a bigger scale.
To our customers, we are dedicated to delivering the same relentless commitment to the quality work and success you have come to expect from us, with the people you know. We do not anticipate any changes to your current product teams or agreements as a result of the transaction. We are excited for this opportunity with NTT DATA, enabling us to elevate and expand the type of services we deliver. We know you will be delighted with the results.
To our team members, thank you for helping us transform into a product-minded company and rid the world of crappy software, one sprint at a time. We remain committed to operating with our core values, leadership competencies, and team-based approach that led us here. This new partnership will provide greater opportunity for career advancement, learning and growth.
