TOKYO -- The Nippon Telegraph & Telephone group will launch a new company to oversee three major communications and data subsidiaries, forming Japan's biggest comprehensive provider of information technology, Nikkei has learned.

The Tokyo-based group will transfer shares in subsidiaries NTT Data, NTT Communications and South Africa-based Dimension Data to a new entity to be set up as early as this fall. The resulting company will provide corporate clients with a wide range of services, including cloud storage and data processing. The group envisions merging the units into a single company later.
