Hitachi Zosen Information Systems was originally founded as a division of Hitachi Zosen Corporation in 1977, becoming an independent systems integration focussed on CAD/CAM, GPS/GIS, and ERP/SCM in 1997,, and finally changing its name in 2006 to NTT Data Engineering Systems Corporation (NDES) when NTT Data Corporation acquired the management rights.
NDES supplies services and software products such as Space-E/Modeller, Space-E/CAM, Space-E/Mold, which are all based on the Catia system.
In 2002 NDES signed a strategic alliance with Dassault to develop and sell new generation, collaborative Space-E/CAM and MOLD Solutions, leveraging the V5 Architecture, NC and Tooling Solutions to deliver a 3d PLM-integrated CAM and Mold portfolio to the Asia-Pacific market. It remains a Gold Software Partner with Dassault.
Vero Software Plc, a supplier of software to NDES, describes them as "the largest vendor of CAM systems in Japan".
