IET Meetup: A Cloud Enabled World, Neil Lewis (Hitachi)

meetup-cloud-enabled-worldThis evening’s presentation at the Institute of Engineering and Technology was sponsored by Hitachi on the subject of The Cloud.

As the Public Cloud is seeing explosive growth for modern internet based business and their web native applications, how can traditional IT originations with a more traditional IT landscape benefit from some of these trends whilst maintaining their legacy?

Neil Lewis explained that, despite years at the forefront of Data Services, Hitachi Data Systems is now re-positioning itself as a Cloud Solutions provider, rather than solely provisioning private infrastructure and software support to enterprises. Whether they can compete with Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure, time will tell – but Hitachi have decided to adapt rather than see their business model become irrelevant.
