NTT merges Australian operations into single new entity

NTT Communications ICT Solutions Australia will combine Frontline Systems, Harbour MSP and NTT Australia

NTT Communications has merged its Australian entities, Frontline Systems, Harbour MSP and NTT Australia into a new entity, NTT Communications ICT Solutions Australia, as part of its expansion in the region.

Former head of Frontline Systems, Monte Davis, has been appointed CEO.

Davis said that the move was a necessary one for the company as part of its regional strategy.

“The three entities are already market leaders in their specific area of IT Services. They each bring a rich offering to the table and, since the refresh, have independently gone from strength-to-strength. By coming together under the one name, we expect the new entity will be a one-stop hub for IT services," he said.

The consolidation of NTT's Australian assets will see the new company offer clients and partners integrated solutions across Cloud, networks, managed services and on-premise services.

“We have ambitious expansion plans targeting areas of growing demand such as cloud, security and our ‘as a service’ offerings; and the launch of a unified company will help us expand in these areas."

NTT Communications acquired majority shares in Frontline Systems Australia in May 2011, and has invested more than$100 million across the three brands in the last two years.

The company has already seeded over $15 million into improving services in 2013. So far it has put forward $2 million towards security services, $5 million towards their public cloud offering, and a further $8 million in on-premise utility computing.

NTT Communications ICT Solutions Australia has already hired an additional 12 staff since the refresh to assist with the changes.

“Australia is a key growth market for us, and know that growth is best achieved through our people, services and customer relations. Part of this growth includes expanding our services nationally. We’re also currently planning new premises in both Sydney and in the Melbourne CBD,” Davis said.
