Five New Applications for 50,000 Employees

NTT DATA is one of the fastest growing IT service providers in the world. In order to harmonize the heterogeneous application landscape of NTT DATA Europe & LATAM, the organization decided on a comprehensive change project.  

The goal was to migrate all 50,000 employees in more than 18 countries to the parent company's software portfolio within 12 months. At the same time, the parallel rollout of SAP S/4HANA, Service Now, SAP SuccessFactors, Salesforce, and SAP Ariba had to avoid slowing down day-to-day operations and overloading the help desk with excessive training.

Workflow learning for success

Based on initial positive experiences with tts performance suite as part of the SAP R/3 implementation at the everis subsidiary, the project team decided to make the Digital Adoption Platform available to all NTT DATA Europe & Latam employees. "Of course, we knew that implementing a sixth application would add complexity to the project," said Francisco Nestares Garcia, project owner and CIO of NTT DATA Europe & Latam. "On the other hand, we also knew how important on-the-job learning is for the success of a project of this size. We wanted to take advantage of this potential.

In order not to lose any time, NTT DATA Europe & Latam also brought two consultants from tts on board at the start of the project. For one year, the tts experts supported the change management team on site in Madrid in the development of the content creation strategy. In addition, tts trained around 45 authors and designed and produced content for the tts performance suite.

Focused approach accelerates project progress

Focus on the essentials

It is not uncommon for organizations to take more than five years to replace their entire core application inventory. NTT DATA was able to reduce this time to 12 months. The reason for this was a highly focused approach and detailed analysis of the change and learning requirements. NTT DATA brought together the necessary resources in a central Change Management Office under the leadership of the Talent & Transformation department.

The decisive course for the rapid progress of the project was set immediately after the implementation and customization of the tts performance suite on an AWS cloud server. From that point on, tts worked closely with the Change Management Office to develop a content strategy, train the authors, and develop and personalize the templates for the training materials.

Focus was also the guiding principle for subsequent content production. "The preliminary analysis of knowledge requirements showed that our employees primarily needed workplace support," says Francisco Nestares Garcia. "E-learning, on the other hand, was hardly necessary due to the high level of software expertise of our users. In total, about 490 pieces of content were created to help users with new or non-intuitive operations and processes, including step lists, user manuals, navigation guides, and e-learning courses, especially on Salesforce. Traditional training was only needed in a few cases. This was partly because the project team successfully promoted the use of the tts performance suite with a promotional video, how-to infographics, and intensive communication. 

Fast adoption relieves the helpdesk

With the help of the Digital Adoption Platform and the services provided by tts, NTT DATA Europe & Latam was able to achieve a high level of acceptance for the major IT project within a short period of time. In addition, the organization was able to ensure a smooth transition by providing employees with context-sensitive and role-specific support at their workplace at any time for questions about the respective application, cross-application processes or onboarding.

Even areas with high employee turnover now have a high level of operational and process reliability, while reducing the amount of training required. "Overall, we have achieved all the project goals we set for ourselves," says Francisco Nestares Garcia. "We have fewer calls to the help desk and are able to resolve the remaining problems more quickly. At the same time, the consistently high level of operational security ensures data and process quality that allows us to maximize the potential of the new business applications."
