NTT Data, DENSO Sign MOU for Strategic Partnership

The companies plan to create a globally deployable software-oriented mobility service platform.

On June 12, 2024, NTT Data Japan Corporation and DENSO Corporation signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to form a strategic partnership for software development.

The partnership between DENSO, which has strengths in vehicle (in-car) technologies including in-vehicle software, and NTT Data, which has strengths in outside-car technologies including cloud computing, aims to quickly and efficiently develop and offer in-vehicle software, which is becoming more prevalent and sophisticated in new vehicles, DENSO said in a recent press announcemment.

The two companies will also hire more advanced software engineers and upskill current engineers at both companies to create a globally deployable software-oriented mobility service platform, which will help support a mobility-centered society in the era of software-defined vehicles (“SDVs”).

As the first initiative, the two companies will jointly establish a software development system, as well as training engineers and increase the number of engineers to 3,000 engineers by 2030.

NTT Data and DENSO have been collaborating with each other for many years. In 2016, DENSO took a stake in NTT Data MSE, a software development company. In 2022, NTT Data and DENSO launched an initiative to build an industry-wide ecosystem for electric vehicle batteries.

Future Outlook

Through this partnership, NTT Data and DENSO said they will quickly create and jointly deploy a platform for new mobility services. The two companies will deepen the alliance while coordinating their respective strengths in the in-car and outside-car domains. They also said they will help make vehicles more attractive through software for the era of SDVs.
