Microsoft NTT DATA partnership

Microsoft and NTT DATA are joining hands to help enterprises deploy and utilize cloud-based resources, specifically on Azure. The two companies will jointly improve NTT DATA’s WinActor, a robotic process automation (RPA) application.

The Redmond-based company is already in the RPA field, and it even has its own such tool, Power Automate. Besides, Microsoft recently announced it had acquired Softomotive, the firm that developed WinAutomation.

Microsoft alliance with NTT DATA to enhance WinActor

The move by Microsoft to extend its partnership with NTT DATA doesn’t come as a surprise.

For starters, the tech giant is in the habit of acquiring or at least forming alliances with like-minded tech firms to help enterprises quickly and smoothly move their data and applications to the cloud.

It took over Movere, a cloud-migration service, in September 2019, for example.

The company is now liaising with NTT DATA on multiple tech fronts, and WinActor development is a key objective of the alliance.

In a statement published today, Microsoft said it’s collaborating with NTT DATA to help with the digital transformation of businesses. Going forward, the corporations will work hand in hand to deploy Microsoft Azure-powered solutions and services.

The companies will enhance NTT DATA’s knowledge management solution everis knowler, and robotics process automation tool WinActor focusing on streamlining business operations and increasing productivity and efficiency.

NTT DATA is itself a global leader in IT. So it has the breadth and depth necessary to help with the deployment of Microsoft’s productivity solutions, including Microsoft 365.The companies can also leverage their synergistic alliance to push Teams to more people working from home.

Lately, Microsoft has been improving Teams’ capacity for workforce collaboration. For example, the Office 365 platform will soon allow Meetings with up to 300 participants.
