Hi­tachi re­cently hosted NEXT 2017 event in Las Ve­gas and an­nounced its new busi­ness en­tity Hi­tachi Van­tara to lever­age the broad port­fo­lio of in­no­va­tion, devel­op­ment and ex­pe­ri­ence from across Hi­tachi Group com­pa­nies to de­liver datadriven solutions for com­mer­cial and in­dus­trial en­ter­prises. This new com­pany will unify the operations of Hi­tachi Data Sys­tems, Hi­tachi In­sight Group, and Pen­taho into a sin­gle integrated busi­ness as Hi­tachi Van­tara to cap­i­tal­ize on Hi­tachi’s so­cial in­no­va­tion ca­pa­bil­ity in both op­er­a­tional tech­nolo­gies (OT) and in­for­ma­tion tech­nolo­gies (IT).

Hi­tachi Van­tara en­vi­sions Smart Data Cen­ter as the ul­ti­mate ap­proach to op­ti­mize all as­pects of IT operations across data cen­ters, re­duce cost, man­age risk and in­crease agility to re­spond to busi­ness change. Ac­cord­ing to Gary Breder, Di­rec­tor of cloud and ser­vices prod­uct mar­ket­ing, few years back data cen­ters was the most im­por­tant thing in the or­ga­ni­za­tion. But with time the com­pany re­al­ized that they need soft­ware for that in­stead of hard­ware. There­fore we have shifted from the hard­ware to soft­ware.

This Smart Data Cen­ter ap­proach makes IT more ag­ile by au­tomat­ing pro­cesses and cen­tral­iz­ing con­trol that span sys­tems, clouds and data cen­ters. Smart Data Cen­ter is very dif­fer­ent from tra­di­tional IT ad­min­is­tra­tion. It au­to­mates de­ci­sion-mak­ing, in­sight and guid­ance through pre­dic­tive an­a­lyt­ics, IoT and pre­scrip­tive in­tel­li­gence. These ad­vanced ca­pa­bil­i­ties cen­tral­ize the man­age­ment of IT in­fra­struc­ture for sim­ple as well as com­plex operations.

THE SMART DATA CEN­TER IN­CLUDES:

Speeds time to de­ploy IT re­sources and com­plete ad­min­is­tra­tive tasks Stream­lines chang­ing and adding new in­fra­struc­ture tech­nol­ogy Pro­vides holistic, dy­namic data cen­ter op­er­a­tional and com­mer­cial views, on-de­mand for data-driven de­ci­sion­mak­ing, risk man­age­ment and plan­ning Max­i­mizes op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency and cost re­duc­tion Im­proves busi­ness align­ment and con­sis­tent de­liv­ery of ser­vice lev­els

“We have in­tro­duced up­dates on the ex­ist­ing Hi­tachi’s cloud of­fer­ings which will help our cus­tomers to use pub­lic cloud. The com­pany has also launched new of­fer­ing from Hi­tachi En­ter­prise Con­tainer plug point. It is de­signed for those com­pa­nies which started on the in­ter­net”, he added.

Breder con­cluded by say­ing that we try to strike the right bal­ance be­tween cus­tomiza­tion and stan­dard­iza­tion. We don’t want our cus­tomers to buy more than what they need. There­fore we have cre­ated dif­fer­ent mod­els for dif­fer­ent kind of busi­nesses.
