Cardiff Capital Region: September 6, 2016 - NGD (Next Generation Data) today announced it has partnered with Infosys, a global leader in consulting, technology and next-generation services, as part of a data centre services requirement from a water utilities company based in Wales.
This follows the recent selection of Infosys to manage substantial elements of the client’s IT estate.
