What is the immediate impact of your name change from Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) and Pentaho to Hitachi Vantara for my accounts payable organization?
Our Hitachi Data Systems, Pentaho and Hitachi Insight Group employees’ email addresses have changed from @hds.com, @pentaho.com and @hitachiinsightgroup.com to @hitachivantara.com. Please effect any necessary communication of this information throughout your accounts payable organization.
What is the longer-term impact of your name change to Hitachi Vantara for my accounts payable organization?
You will begin to see statements embedded in our Hitachi invoices that inform you of this change. You will also receive letters informing you of this change. On January 1, 2018, we will change our invoice. At that time invoices will no longer be from HDS, but from Hitachi Vantara.
What about payments? Do I still make payments to HDS?
Yes, continue to make all payments to HDS or Hitachi Data Systems. Prepare to change remittance on and after January 1, 2018 to Hitachi Vantara.
What if I have other questions? Who do I contact and how do I contact them?
Continue to contact the same Hitachi Data Systems people you have communicated with in the past. Their telephone numbers have not changed but their email addresses have switched to @hitachivantara.com. However, during this period your email to Hitachi Data Systems employees @hds.com will continue to be received.
Will you be sending my company information on modifying Hitachi Data Systems’ existing contract to reflect the name change?
No. We are not changing our existing contract. However, if you require a modification to our contract to reflect our name change from HDS to Hitachi Vantara, notify us and we will work with you to complete your request.
