London, 21 July 2020 – NTT DATA, a world leader in consulting and IT services, announced today it has signed a multi-year contract with luxury automotive, motorsport and technology company McLaren Group. The contract will see NTT DATA optimising and transforming McLaren’s critical IT enterprise solutions.
McLaren has evaluated how it can best deliver a modern, cost effective and flexible IT service to its three businesses, all of whom have varied requirements. NTT DATA has been chosen to provide that flexibility alongside expertise in critical applications such as SAP, ServiceNow and CRM platforms, as well as broad knowledge within end user compute and infrastructure. This broad expertise allows McLaren Services’ IT function to provide true business value rather than merely being a traditional supplier of IT.
McLaren is the latest global company to work with NTT DATA.
Karen McElhatton, Group Chief Information Officer at McLaren Group, commented: “McLaren is globally famous for being a truly innovative company. It is vital that our IT function is agile to support the business innovation and flexible enough to meet the dynamic and varied demands of each of our businesses. We chose NTT DATA, who not only were able to provide us with the optimisation and flexibility that we needed, but could also help us transform the way we do things.”
“Being a globally recognised specialist, NTT DATA brings so much more to a business like McLaren, which we believe will enhance our employee experience and ultimately our customers’ too.”
Nick Smith, Head of Automotive at NTT DATA UK, said: “NTT DATA has a long history of supporting dynamic, innovative businesses, and we are proud to work with a brand as iconic as McLaren.
“This is about building a long-term relationship that allows McLaren to focus on its core business while we take care of its enterprise IT.”
