The Japanese consultancy NTT DATA, the 6th largest IT consulting and services company in the world, operates in the ITO ecosystem (outsourcing of processes related to information technology).
The company, in its commitment to boost digitalization has agreed to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the Moroccan Government, which is making a big bet for achieving digital development and growth. Morocco has proved to be an outstanding operational base for major technology companies, which have entered the market to complement and extend their operations, mainly thanks to the availability of excellent IT talent and highly skilled people.
Thus, Mr. Ryad MEZZOUR, Minister of Industry and Trade - and Ms. Ghita MEZZOUR, Minister of Digital Transition and Reform of Administration, were present in the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding with Fred Sabbah, CEO of NTT DATA Morocco during a celebratory act on April 20 in Casablanca at the offices of CasaNearShore, a 15-years old business park in the economic capital of Morocco.
According to Mr. Fred Sabbah, "the investment amount of this project is 15 million DH and will allow the creation of 1.000 direct stable jobs and the realization of a turnover of nearly 1.000 million Dirhams over the period 2022-2025.
We are proud and honored to have signed this agreement with the two ministries to demonstrate our commitment and willingness to grow in Morocco, where we want to offer many opportunities to local talent in different regions of the Kingdom.”
On this occasion, Mr. Fred Sabbah indicates that "This means a strong commitment and a desire to increase our presence in Morocco. After the North of Morocco and the Greater Casablanca region, we are also considering a development in the South to have a presence in this region with high potential.
In terms of talent creation, since 2016 we have recruited and trained nearly 1000 young laureates from local universities and schools, some of whom are now confirmed project managers, which makes us the leading IT employer in the North region and expecting to become so in the South region".
