NTT, following its privatization in 1985, spun off the Data Communications division as NTT DATA in 1988, which has now become the largest of the IT Services companies headquartered in Japan.

According to reports in 2012, Forbes Global 2000 recognizes NTT DATA as the 5th largest IT Services company.[Forbes Global 2000]
