NTT Com was also named a Rising Star in SAP Services and a Contender in two other quadrants: Public Cloud Infrastructure Consulting & Implementation Services; and Public Cloud Infrastructure Managed Services.

NTT Com was one of only three with capabilities in five or more quadrants, while sister company Dimension Data was one of the others.
"We value ISG's recognition of our leadership in cloud infrastructure and unified communications, as well as the momentum behind our SAP services," said Katsumi Nakata, Senior Executive Vice President, NTT Com. "In their report, ISG also draws attention to our capabilities in cloud consulting, implementation and managed services. Very few companies are diversified enough to offer that entire suite."
In its Cloud Quadrant on IaaS, ISG points to NTT Com's enterprise cloud capabilities, sizable customer base, and solid reputation in managed hosting and managed security services. Regarding NTT Com's strengths in UCaaS, ISG underscores NTT Com's experience with large enterprises and ongoing investment in UCaaS capabilities and partners. NTT Com's status as a Rising Star in SAP Services derives from its SAP-enabled data centers, managed service model, large pool of specialists and strong partnership with SAP and Virtustream.
