Japan-based IT provider NTT DATA corporation announced this morning that it will acquire IT services firm Keane, Inc. as part of its plans to expand to the US market. Terms were not disclosed, although sources indicate a price of $1.2 billion.  

The president and CEO of NTT DATA, a quoted subsidiary of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation, said in the announcement, ““This transaction with Keane will allow us to provide comprehensive IT services including system development and management of mission critical systems in North America. Keane has a superior reputation in the area of application and infrastructure services, as well as deep industry expertise. I believe that this, combined with their unique global delivery model and our global scale, offers more cost-effective and higher value solutions to our customers.”

Keane’s healthcare offerings include IT services, revenue cycle, the Keane Optimum application suite, and the NetSolutions suite for long term care facilities.

Keane was sold three years ago for $854 million to a California outsourcing firm backed by a Citicorp private equity investment. 

Rumor of the acquisition was posted on HIStalk last Friday after a tip from Broadway Joe.
