October 8, 2019 Hitachi Vantara Next 2019 Edition

Businesses today are challenged to manage a diverse and complex IT landscape in a volatile global economy. They seek competitive advantage from their IT investments. They need to go fast yet balance speed with meeting governance and compliance standards. They also require expert cloud resources to quickly scale IT services up and down. On top of this highly competitive global economy and need for agility, IT services from on-premises to hybrid and multcloud, are going through an AI transformation of their own. Successful organizations are mining their own corporate data for profitable insights. Through historical trend analysis and predictive analytics, organizations are finding new value from their business applications. Through advanced analytics and data modeling, they are monetizing their data, gaining value from something that has sat dormant for years. 

At Next 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Hitachi Vantara this week announced an expanded and enhanced portfolio of cloud services. 
 

 

Through advanced code automation, data lakes, API driven micro-services and the scalability of stateless transfer cloud services (REST), Hitachi Vantara cloud services accelerate the deployment and productive use of hybrid cloud and multicloud environments.

The new portfolio of cloud services consists of:

The target location can be specified as any number of public clouds (AWS, MS Azure, GCP,) as well as private cloud.
