JAPAN’S NTT Data Corporation is putting down firmer roots in the country with the establishment of NTT Data Philippines, Inc., formerly known as Wizardsgroup Inc.
NTT Data Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. (NDAP) announced on Thursday that Wizardsgroup will now be known as NTT Data Philippines Inc.
In January 2016, NTT Data Corp., through its subsidiary NDAP, acquired 100 percent of the outstanding shares in Wizardsgroup.
“With this development, NTT Data Philippines will continue to pursue the same corporate direction that has distinguished Wizardsgroup, Inc. across various sectors in the Philippine economy,” said Pocholo Reyes, president and chief executive of NTT Data Philippines.
“We will build on NTT Data’s group vision to be a ‘Global IT Innovator’ and build upon its world-class IT services to the fullest to drive businesses faster in the country and in the region,” said Reyes, who was formerly managing director of Wizardsgroup.
Wizardsgroup has established a strong presence in high-value IT consulting and learning solutions for Oracle and Microsoft technologies mainly in the Philippine market.
With over 20 years of experience in the local market, its core services have spanned the entire spectrum from application development outsourcing to implementation of enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions.
NTT Data Philippines’ total solutions package combines Wizardsgroup’s leading competency in deploying Microsoft technologies, and with the highly developed capabilities on Oracle Engineered Systems.
It provides added value in consulting services across industries as well as to software companies, system integrators, and IT service providers. NTT Data Philippines’ main expertise lies in its thorough understanding of the problems their clients are facing and designing and rolling out solutions that respond to these challenges.
