NTT DATA is built on a culture of innovation. That’s why we continue to push boundaries and explore possibilities for new technologies through various global initiatives, including our Open Innovation Contest. This global program, started in 2014, is designed to encourage and support startups and help companies overcome specific technology and societal challenges. Today, the contest spans dozens of cities in more than 20 countries. Winners of this contest can access our network and research and development leaders to fine tune their innovations.

Likewise, the Hackathon, a one-of-a-kind collaboration between our team members and engineering students across multiple colleges in India, seeks impactful, technology-driven solutions to solve real-life social problems like floods, pollution, weather change, traffic congestion and more. It’s a demonstration of our ongoing commitment, having invested billions of dollars in research and development and innovation for more than 20 years.
