Hitachi Expands Certifications with SAP

Hitachi Consulting, a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. and provider of IT consulting and managed services, is now a SAP-certified provider of hosting services for SAP solutions and operations services for the SAP HANA platform. The companies say the certifications complement the existing Hitachi Consulting Cloud Framework for SAP solutions and serve to confirm the ability of Hitachi Consulting to deliver comprehensive IT operations services for customers running SAP solutions or applications running on the SAP HANA platform. The new certifications apply to customers in North America initially.

As an SAP-certified provider of hosting services, Hitachi Consulting will provide a delivery model for mission-critical SAP applications. As an SAP-certified provider of operations services for SAP HANA, Hitachi Consulting can perform a range of IT services related to SAP HANA and to applications running on SAP HANA, from initial proof-of-concepts to rapid deployments for customers of their SAP HANA-based solutions. 

Using Hitachi Consulting for hosting or operating services for their application, companies can benefit from reduced operational expenses and the ability to focus on the business value of their solutions rather than on infrastructure.

"These certifications complement our existing partnership with SAP – Hitachi Consulting is a SAP global services partner and a gold SAP channel partner,” said Mike Driessen, SVP, Hitachi Consulting SAP N.A. Practice Leader. “We can not only resell SAP solutions and provide implementation services, but can also provide hosting and operations services to help our clients transform their businesses while managing costs and risks."
