Customer Snapshot: Success Strategy
Respond to Changing Markets
With evolving client demands, the growing need for transformation becomes multifaceted. So a strategy with multiple objectives was top of mind for NTT DATA. In order to respond to the changing market, they intended to establish a consistent performance-based culture that engages with employees for optimal performance—and all in one unified environment.

Knowing employee engagement is critical to success, NTT DATA started a human capital management (HCM) journey. With disparate HR systems throughout their many acquired companies, having one global system was not only something they would advise their clients to implement, but was critical to their own success.
The value of unification…
Having one talent pool, one set of data, and being able to clearly understand each person’s career skills, capabilities, and future aspirations were all key to this strategy. Along the way, they also want to measure the ROI, and track how new technology is helping to bring meaningful transformation to the business.
Creating a Scalable Platform for Growth
Turning to the experts they know and trust, NTT DATA selected SuccessFactors as its HCM solution provider and choreographed the rollout of the SuccessFactors Performance & Goals, SuccessFactors Compensation, including variable pay, and SuccessFactors Employee Central solutions.
Naming their new core employee platform “Navigator”, NTT DATA would focus in North America, bringing more than 20,000 employees into SuccessFactors.
When bringing together so many employees from different cultures and backgrounds, it’s common for communication issues and inconsistencies to create tension and disengaged employees with no goals or incentives—thus affecting every business outcome since they are in the business of providing professional services.
Leaders at NTT DATA know employee engagement not only improves corporate culture, but also translates into profitable dollars.
