PLANO, TX – December 13, 2016 - NTT DATA, Inc., a leading business and IT services provider, today announced it was selected for a five-year agreement with the California State Teachers’ Retirement System to support the SAP system for the world’s largest educator-only pension fund.

“CalSTRS was seeking a vendor that would be able to support expansion of their SAP system, while also providing a vision for their future within the SAP environment and integration across their entire IT portfolio,” said Tim Conway, president, public sector for NTT DATA, Inc. “Through this collaboration, we will leverage our depth of industry experience to improve operational efficiencies at CalSTRS resulting in future cost savings and increased productivity.”
