Hitachi Vantara combines with Hitachi Consulting to form new ‘digital powerhouse’ Featured

By

Hitachi Vantara, and Hitachi Consulting have joined forces to form one company to create what they say is a “new digital infrastructure and solutions” powerhouse.

According to Hitachi, the new company - branded as Hitachi Vantara - aims to become “the world’s preferred digital innovation partner by unlocking the ‘good’ in data that benefits customers, raises the quality of people's lives and builds a sustainable society”.

And Hitachi says Hitachi Vantara will specifically bring a “competitive edge to the digital domains that matter most – the data centre, data operations and enterprise digital transformation”.

“The new Hitachi Vantara combines the best consulting-led digital solutions and vertical industry expertise of Hitachi Consulting with Hitachi Vantara’s IT domain expertise. Going forward, the integrated company will help customers develop practical, scalable digital strategies and solutions that transform operational processes, improve customer experiences and create new business models to drive innovation and growth,” Hitachi said.

Toshiaki Tokunaga, a 30-year Hitachi veteran who has successfully transformed several Hitachi businesses, will serve in the dual role of chief executive officer and chairman of the board of Hitachi Vantara.

The company’s two business units - Digital Infrastructure and Digital Solutions - will be led by presidents Brian Householder and Brad Surak, respectively.

“A barrage of data and technology is disrupting enterprises and industries the world over,” said Tokunaga.

“Through the integration of Hitachi Consulting, the new Hitachi Vantara will be uniquely equipped with the capabilities our customers need to guide them on their digital journeys. We’re going to be the company that helps customers navigate from what’s now to what’s next.”

According to Hitachi, organisations worldwide are being challenged to derive insights and competitive advantage from the vast amounts of data being generated by their people, processes and machines - and industries are simultaneously being disrupted by quickly evolving technologies and architectures, such as AI and IoT.
