NTT Data Corporation, a system integration company that is a subsidiary of Japan's Nippon Telegraph and Telephone, last week announced it is setting up an innovation laboratory in Singapore, one of two that will be established in this region, the other being in Bandung, Indonesia.

The company hopes to use these two centres to promote research and development. Tsuyoshi Kitani, NTT Data's senior vice-president of R&D (headquarters), said the Singapore centre will be a key R&D hub for the region. "NTT Data Asia Pacific plays a central role in developing the group's business footprint across the Asia Pacific region and will be responsible for the innovation lab in Singapore." he said.

The Singapore laboratory will formulate and drive technology strategy that matches Asia Pacific's diverse needs as well as NTT Data's regional business strategy, said Mr Kitani.
