How NTT DATA is helping to create The Open For The Ages

The power of unforgettable moments in sports

Sport unites us. We crave treasured sports moments that become forever etched in our minds and time stamped in history. A breath-taking final-lap pass to capture the win at the Indianapolis 500. A dramatic birdie on the 18th and final hole of The Open to raise the Claret Jug in victory. An electrifying, walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to become World Series® champions.

Around the globe, NTT DATA and parent company NTT are helping change sports for athletes, teams, sports leagues and, most importantly, the fans. Through technology and innovation, our mission is to bring fans closer to their heroes and those defining moments—whether from home, online or in the stadiums of the future.
