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.
