Hitachi plans to make aggressive investments to drive growth in its 2021 Mid-term Management Plan. With this integration, Hitachi will strengthen front line and delivery capabilities to increase alignment and unlock the synergies between Hitachi Vantara and its vertical business units. The combined organization will operate under the Hitachi Vantara brand, beginning in January 2020.
The digital solutions will be designed to help customers harness the power of digitalization to achieve meaningful business outcomes and drive competitive advantage.
“I’m confident that Hitachi Vantara will deliver even greater value for our customers and partners by reinforcing its digital business and solution delivery capabilities,” said Toshiaki Tokunaga. “The combined entity, in collaboration with Hitachi’s Global Social Innovation Business, will map to Hitachi’s 2021 Mid-term Management Plan, which outlines the expansion of its digital business, global market share growth, and the delivery of social, environmental and economic value for customers and partners.”
“Hitachi Vantara was created to develop exceptional technologies to help our customers maximize the value of their data, from the data center to the cloud and out to the edge,” said Brian Householder, chief executive officer of Hitachi Vantara. “This is a great next step to bring two complementary organizations even closer together to help our customers and partners tap more broadly into the power of Hitachi to drive meaningful business outcomes.”
Hicham Abdessamad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hitachi Consulting, said, “As a consulting-led digital solutions company aligned to Hitachi’s social innovation strategy, we have been focused on delivering tangible business outcomes to our customers by leveraging Hitachi’s vast information technology and operational technology capabilities. This integration uniquely positions us to accelerate time to value for our customers and provide digital solutions at scale.”
Additional information about the company, including leadership and organizational structure, will be announced in early 2020.
