The report also noted that NTT Com has bolstered its capabilities in the North American market with newly acquired Secure-24 and its recent hybrid cloud services strategy called NTT cloud.
“We anticipate continued SAP customer growth and deal flow in the United States to complement NTT Com's infrastructure, networks, cloud services and security offerings," wrote Jan Erik Aase, director and principal analyst for ISG Research.
The ISG Provider Lens Quadrant report evaluated 27 service providers that offer SAP HANA® services in five separate quadrants; S/4HANA, BW/4HANA, SAP Cloud Platform, SAP HANA® Technology – Infrastructure and SAP HANA® Technology – Managed Service.
NTT Com's inclusion in the latest ISG Provider Lens Quadrant report is based upon information submitted to ISG. Vendors are evaluated and positioned according to a transparent ISG methodology.
