Across industries, the pressures IT and OT leaders face daily are replicating faster than resources to solve them. Supply chains, customer engagement expectations, digital transformation, cloud strategy and cybersecurity are just a few. Hitachi Vantara’s work to address these challenges with our customers across the globe is one reason we’ve been named as a leading provider in the Building 15 category on the Americas Leaderboard for the 3Q 2021 Global ISG Index™.
The mandate to move to the cloud for agility and adaptability is real, but data and system modernization are too often stalling business transformations. IT and OT are converging, but so is engineering. To chart a faster time to value, businesses must cut through the complexity to find answers. As we continually try to shape the tech industry’s next move and meet our customers’ shifting needs, we’re engineering data-driven answers with you.
The push to accelerate business transformation, combined with the complexity of execution and shortage of skilled resources, is spurring a boom in the services sector. According to ISG, the global markets for managed services and as-a-service, combined, grew 40% year-over-year in Q3 2021, the highest growth rate since 2014. No surprise to anyone in tech that the largest increase came in the as-a-service market and among the top sectors were consumer packaged goods, travel and transport, energy, telecom, manufacturing and FinServ. These industries are quickly realizing the potential of data-driven transformation.
- Digital Factory & Manufacturing: Optimizing resource efficiency inside the factory and across the supply chain is driving new insights enhancing production, quality and safety.
- Financial Services: Creating digitally-enabled, customer-experience led financial services and open banking approaches allows for real-time and contextual experiences for customers.
- Telecom: The backbone of the data-driven society is communications and connectivity. The rapid deployment of high-speed and reliable low-latency communications along with cloud transformation is paramount for digitalization in all markets.
- Clean Energy: Data and technology are essential to reducing the carbon-intensity of the power network and accelerating the transition to renewables.
Our recognition from ISG not only highlights the acceleration of the services market but also the rapid success of our customers in modernizing their digital core and scaling their technology and business with Hitachi Vantara. Our differentiated cloud migration, app, ERP and data modernization services are part of how we deliver true edge to core to cloud modernization and management of workloads across distributed multicloud environments.
Digitally transforming business takes a village. Partnerships are a requirement. Skilled expert talent is harder to come by. Hitachi Vantara is rare among our peers, big or small, in having end-to-end data hardware to software; consulting expertise and services for IoT, cloud, data and app modernization, and a robust ecosystem of partners. As we continue to bring more capabilities under one roof, each step we’re trying to make it easier for you to find the best answers in one place to get from data to insights to data-driven outcomes faster.
