*UKHotViewsExtra* Hitachi Vantara – digital services with engineering in its DNA

Hitachi VantaraHitachi Vantara is a significant global player in the systems integration and digital services space, that nonetheless sometimes goes under the radar when we profile the marketplace. The firm also has a significant presence in UK digital services with some interesting clients and a differentiated service offer. To understand more, and to get a view on where the business is heading, I sat down recently with President and Board Member of Hitachi Vantara, Roger Lvin (pictured).

Roger LvinLvin has been with the company just shy of 3 years and has a background covering a range of different roles within Cognizant over a 16-year period. Lvin spent a good deal of this time focused on running aspects of Cognizant’s Business Process Services operations, both in North America and Globally. Prior to that Lvin’s professional experience covers both engineering and architecture.

A business of three parts

Hitachi Vantara operates via three separate business units by which it goes to market. Firstly, it has a Digital Services and Solutions business that combines capabilities in systems integration and digital engineering – this is the business that Lvin has responsibility for, running its P&L globally. In addition to digital services, the firm also has a large infrastructure business (think large ‘bullet proof’ enterprise storage systems) and a data management software portfolio (grown after acquisitions including Pentaho and Waterline).
