Hitachi Consulting, a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd (TSE: 6501), and a leading provider of IT and management consulting solutions and services, today announced that it will deliver a fully-integrated Hitachi Consulting Enterprise Cloud framework to enable companies to become “clickable enterprises” - nimble, fast-moving organizations with their entire IT applications portfolio, whether SaaS or on-premises applications, or both, being managed and delivered through the cloud.
The Hitachi Consulting Enterprise Cloud includes standardized, modular offerings from Hitachi Consulting. This capability is designed to bundle a company’s entire IT environment, whetheron-premises or SaaS, their applications, integration to third-party systems, as well as managedservices—as a single package—for one monthly price.
“Organizations can now purchase the infrastructure, software, deployment and management services, and ancillary solutions as a bundle from one source by way of subscription-based pricing,” said Jim Cole, Hitachi Consulting Senior Vice President, Cloud Solutions. “We plan to deliver standardized modular offerings – think of them as building blocks – with fixed pricing. Think ‘small, medium and large offerings’, with the ability to tailor to each company’s unique needs.”
With a rapidly growing multitude of vendors providing Public, Private, and Hybrid cloud options, Hitachi Consulting wants to take the complexity out of how companies can transform and migrate to SaaS, PaaS, and legacy coexistence by managing the integrated Enterprise Cloud for them, no matter where they are on their cloud journey.
“The proliferation of cloud technology and applications has made managing enterprise IT portfolios more complex, not less”, said Phil Regnault, Hitachi Consulting Senior Vice President, Technology Solutions. “Our aim is help simplify the management of that portfolio and give our clients and their end users a consistent Hitachi Consulting Cloud Experience regardless of the underlying technology.”
Hitachi Consulting is uniquely positioned to help businesses access industry-leading Hitachi technology through sister companies such as Hitachi Data Systems and fund their projects through Hitachi Capital. The Hitachi Consulting Enterprise Cloud framework allows Hitachi Consulting to manage an entire cloud ecosystem of vendors to deliver all environments to clients.
Hitachi Consulting will showcase its Enterprise Cloud capabilities at Oracle OpenWord 2015 in San Francisco, CA from October 25-29, 2015. As a Grande Sponsor, Hitachi Consulting will present several important cloud sessions during the course of the conference. Hitachi is also the exclusive sponsor of Cloud Central and Big Data Central events at OpenWorld. A major attraction at Hitachi Booth #1501 in the Moscone South Hall will be three-time Indianapolis 500 winner and Verizon IndyCar Series legend Helio Castroneves and the Team Penske No.3 Chevrolet sponsored by Hitachi.
Hitachi Consulting has helped move large, complex systems successfully to the cloud, and host and manage mission-critical cloud applications for some of the world’s largest enterprises. The Hitachi Consulting Enterprise Cloud framework puts Hitachi Consulting firmly at the center of an enabling environment that helps every company become a “clickable enterprise.”
