At the 2014 Oracle OpenWorld, Hitachi Data Systems COO, Brian Householder, was a guest speaker at the Infosys keynote, featuring CEO Dr. Vishal Sikkha. Dr. Sikkha's key message was about the transformation that is going on in all layers of the IT stack and that software is key to enabling this transformation to meet the challenges of the new digital world. So what was a traditional hardware vendor like Hitachi Data Systems doing at an Infosys keynote that focused on software? Well, Brian Householder, introduced a Hitachi that many likely never knew. It's the best kept secret and I want to share it with you!
Behind the Hitachi storage and server hardware that many enterprises rely on is software. Software that enables management, data protection and automation of IT tasks so that you can focus on value-added services that moves the business forward. Not only did Brian mention software, but he also showcased examples on how Hitach and Infosys are working together leveraging the Internet of Things that Matter to create outcomes that affect our daily lives. He concluded with advice to all in IT about transforming and thriving in the new world through eliminating silos, achieving data independence and leveraging existing assets.
