Hitachi merges Vantara and Consulting subsidiaries

Hitachi’s Vantara and Consulting subsidiaries have joined forces to create a “digital infrastructure and solutions powerhouse”, according to Hitachi.

The pair, now one company under Hitachi Vantara’s banner, are expected to use their combined IT infrastructure, data management, analytics, AI, industrial solutions and digital transformation capabilities to help clients transform operational processes, improve customer experiences and “create new business models to drive innovation and growth”, Hitachi Vantara said.

The company’s portfolio includes edge-to-core-to-cloud infrastructure offerings, such as the Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform 5000 series data storage array and Lumada-based digital industrial solutions, Hitachi Vantara said.

The company will also play a role in advancing Hitachi’s 2021 Mid-term Management Plan, which aims to make Hitachi a global leader in “Social Innovation Business”. By combining its industrial and IT expertise and products, Hitachi hopes to create new social, environmental and economic value for clients and help resolve social issues, Hitachi Vantara explained.

Hitachi Vantara will also help expand revenue from digital business, digitally transform Hitachi’s industrial businesses and fuel international growth, the company said.

Hitachi Vantara will be led by CEO, Chairman of the Board and 30-year Hitachi veteran Toshiaki Tokunaga, while its Digital Infrastructure and Digital Solutions units will be led by Presidents Brian Householder and Brad Surak, respectively.
