HCP Reaches $1B in Revenue and Fuels Customers’ Digital Transformations Across a Wide Range of Use Cases and Industries

SANTA CLARA, CA (March 7, 2017) — Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE:6501), today announced that the Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) portfolio has generated $1 billion in revenue for HDS. The portfolio is seeing a significant increase in new customers, evolving use cases and industry recognition. In fact, customers such as ThinkOn, Spinmaster and Accident Exchange entrust the Hitachi Content Platform portfolio with their most critical data because of HCP’s robust data governance, compliance, and intelligent management capabilities.

“Customers are using Hitachi Content Platform to enable their digital transformation journey. Our objective has always been to help customers modernize traditional IT environments as a first step, with the ultimate goal of providing a foundational solution to allow them to extract value by using their data in new and interesting ways,” said Peter Sjoberg, chief technology officer, cloud and mobility for Hitachi Data Systems.

While HDS’ solutions are not limited to organizations in highly regulated industries such as finance, banking, and healthcare, the company is at the forefront of tackling many modern and emerging data challenges, including stringent policies around data management, compliance and a growing swell of government regulations. At the same time, customer data must be more mobile than ever and ready for analysis to drive business forward. Hitachi Content Platform tackles these challenges, arming companies with the tools they need for their digital transformation journey.

Hitachi Content Platform delivers unique value to customers in that it offers a tightly integrated ecosystem of solutions surrounding the object storage platform to enable customers greater business value and benefits. Data has become the lifeblood of every organization in every industry, whether it is employee data, customer information, internal communications, intellectual property, machine data or research. The ability to ensure control, visibility, governance, collaboration, accessibility and analysis of this vital data is paramount.

ThinkOn success story highlights the flexibility and values the HCP portfolio delivers to customers by solving larger organizational challenges with a holistic solution oriented approach.

ThinkOn ThinkOn, a wholesale provider of infrastructure as a service (IaaS), needed to build a set of service offerings to improve productivity, deliver insights and maintain governance. After implementing HCP object storage, ThinkOn launched several pay-as-you-go services that help companies protect their critical data assets and optimize their application infrastructure costs. HCP and its integrated cloud gateway, Hitachi Data Ingestor, helped them achieve greater than expected performance, simplify storage provisioning and improve storage utilization efficiencies. “When you start up with any new service, you try your best to plan for all of the expected benefits as well as for risks. With HCP, what we found is that we’re getting much better performance out of the infrastructure than what we expected or planned for. This has given us a lot more flexibility than we originally anticipated with respect to supporting customer owned assets as well as our own infrastructure,” said Craig McLellan, CEO, ThinkOn.
