According to the companies, the deal will expand NTT’s business process outsourcing capabilities, particularly in healthcare and reimbursement, and broaden the infrastructure platform by adding Dell Service’ U.S., UK and Australian data centers to NTT’s 230 data centers worldwide. It will also increase NTT’s tool kit for providing next-generation BPO services.
