Hitachi Vantara launches consulting services to improve data management
Thu, 1st Jun 2023

Hitachi Vantara, the modern infrastructure, data management and digital solutions subsidiary of Hitachi, has introduced Hitachi Data Reliability Engineering (DRE), a suite of consulting services helping organisations improve the quality and consistency of business-critical data.

Amid a surge of data from connected devices and applications, organisations are challenged with increasingly complex data environments.

According to a recent report, following an era of the data hoarding mentality defined by volume, organisations are now facing the reality that business insight is often directly constrained by the integrity of the datasets that are served to less-technical business users.

Once determined to accumulate vast amounts of data, the issue of reliability in datasets for non-technical users is apparent and becoming an imperative for many CXOs. With a secure, self-service approach, DRE allows organisations to embed quality data into applications, enhancing internal processes and customer-centric business strategies.

Ensuring high-quality data systems and pipelines, Hitachi DRE's automated and secure self-service approach aims to help deliver consistent, trustworthy data.

Roger Lvin, President, Digital Solutions at Hitachi Vantara, comments, "Many of our customers are grappling with the unprecedented volume and complexity of their data environments and simply dont have the resources to maintain trustworthy, highly functional data to fuel their complex analytics and modern application needs.
