A Letter From CEO Gajen Kandiah to Our Clients

Gajen Kandiah Gajen Kandiah
President, Hitachi Digital and Executive Chairman, Hitachi Digital Services

January 21, 2021

As we start a New Year, I find I’m thinking about two words more often than any other: ‘resilience’ and ‘agility’. Over the last six months, I’ve asked my team and our company to demonstrate both qualities and they’ve stepped up. Equally importantly, I’m proud of how Hitachi Vantara has helped so many of our clients navigate this storm by boosting their resilience and agility.

For example, we helped Rabobank scale its digital infrastructure 10X in the face of a very significant rise in online transaction volumes, with no additional staff. We’re helping Logan Aluminum digitalize their processes and unlock their data to be able to deliver the best products to their customers. And we recently partnered with AT&T to help Southern Nevada Transportation implement a thermal imaging solution to help mitigate the risk of COVID-19 exposure for staff, visitors and the community.

More than ever, it is clear that solving the toughest challenges in society and business requires data-driven solutions, and Hitachi Vantara can help.

We Can Help Solve Your Biggest Data Challenges

At Hitachi Vantara, we are committed to helping you accelerate your digital business initiatives with data solutions that span the edge to the core and to multi-cloud environments. The industry is taking notice and recognizing innovation and leadership across our portfolio. For example, Gartner recently named Hitachi as a Leader in both the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage Arrays and the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Industrial IoT Platforms.

Our clients and partners are eagerly embracing the innovative solutions and services we’ve launched within the past year to help them achieve their desired business outcomes – from our expanded set of digital manufacturing offerings to our recently announced Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform E590 and E790 arrays, and our new solution for managing Kubernetes clusters across major cloud providers.

We Are a Business Partner Who Shares Your Values

Has there ever been a time when ethical, values-based leadership mattered more? A responsibility to our society and to our community is core to how Hitachi does business. From applying data-centric solutions to protecting our rainforests, to helping the American Heart Association accelerate our understanding of COVID-19, how we do business matters every bit as much as the business we do.

We greatly appreciate your business and partnership. As the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel becomes brighter, I hope we’ll have the opportunity to meet face-to-face to discuss how Hitachi Vantara can better help you address your biggest digital challenges.

In the meantime, mark your calendar for our virtual Hitachi Social Innovation Forum on May 25-May 27, 2021 where we’ll share more details about our vision for the data-driven transformation of society and business.

Wishing you great success in 2021,
