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.”
