Hitachi Vantara Makes Strategic Investment in India With New Regional Operations Hub
HYDERABAD, India – Nov. 12, 2019 – Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), today unveiled a new regional operations hub that will act as an innovation and global delivery center for the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
Hitachi Vantara was formed in 2017 as a new digital company that is committed to powering good for business and society. Since then, the company has continued enhancing Hitachi’s strong decades-long leadership in core storage and infrastructure solutions by adding software and services that help customers in any industry – from manufacturing to transportation to energy – transform their businesses with solutions that drive meaningful outcomes for customers in the digital era.
In support of this vision, Hitachi Vantara is expanding its presence in Hyderabad to help accelerate its global business. India, with its highly skilled workforce and regional prominence, plays a critical role in the company’s global growth strategy.
Beginning with an expanded global IT, solutions and services footprint, the company expects to nearly double its talent base in Hyderabad to better serve customers. The delivery center enhances Hitachi Vantara’s “follow-the-sun” capabilities to support global customers anywhere, anytime. It also expands the company’s ability to showcase its world-class products, solutions and services to customers, partners and prospects from the growing India market and elsewhere in the APAC region.
“India plays a critical role in Hitachi Vantara’s holistic global strategy,” said Bobby Soni, chief solutions and services officer at Hitachi Vantara. “Our customers already value us for being a trusted provider that delivers compelling solutions and service offerings. As India continues to rise as a powerful global economic player, building out a center of excellence in Hyderabad will enable us to connect even better with our customers, build local market expertise, and deliver industry-leading innovation faster than ever.”
