Hitachi arm to invest in Telecom, Healthcare

Technology major Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) sees huge growth opportunity in the Indian telecom, healthcare and e-governance services sectors. The company is already in talks with the Modi government to extend its expertise in converging technologies for enterprises such as financial institutions and government departments.

Speaking at the HDS APAC CIO Innovation forum, Neville Vincent, the company’s senior vice-president and general manager for Asia-Pacific region, said that the company plans to invest big in India’s telecom sector, data management, data protection and citizen security systems in the coming years. “The plan complements the double-digit growth which the company has registered in India in the last few years,” he said.

Vincent said technologies that enhance renewable energy capabilities, ensure efficient communication and ameliorate healthcare facilities would play an integral part in Modi’s ‘100 smart cities’ initiative. “We also see that we can make a major contribution to the healthcare sector in India and other Asian cities with our social innovation business solutions,” he said.
