Before HITOP our IT systems were all over the map…individually developed and managed among 13 independent business units spread out over 100 global locations.”

Chikayasu added, “Partnering with NTT Com for our infrastructure and IT platform management has allowed us to institute a global governance model and leapfrog into cloud technologies. Our internal teams have shifted their focus into more strategic projects, and together with NTT Com, we are delivering innovative services to our business users that would have been difficult and costly to develop on our own. We are on track to reduce our global IT costs by 30 percent and we continue to drive value back into our core business. This would not have been possible without Global Management One.”
