About Hitachi Consulting
Yes: That Hitachi
Even those who know nothing about Hitachi Consulting should be capable of guessing a few key facts about the company: yes, it's a unit of Hitachi, Ltd., the Japanese electronics and engineering giant; and, yes, the firm offers IT and business consulting services to clients.
As befits a firm with such a famous brand attached to it, Hitachi Consulting has offices in 24 countries, global delivery centers in India and China, and more than 4,000 employees—all while retaining the culture of a smaller, more entrepreneurial "boutique" firm.
The firm offers a range of services to clients in a variety of industries: aerospace and transport; chemicals; communications, media and entertainment; consumer products; energy and mining; financial services; high tech; manufacturing; healthcare and public sector.
Regardless of the industry, Hitachi has the capabilities—backstopped by the stability, size and reach afforded by its parent firm—to offer end-to-end solutions. Accordingly, everything from detailed analysis, problem identification and solution design through to building and maintaining solutions with outsourced services is available via Hitachi Consulting.
On the management consulting side, the firm can assist business leaders at an organizational level. In addition to industry-specific solutions, the firm's offerings typically target key business areas looking for strategic and operational gains: customer and channel solutions; finance and accounting; supply chain; business process management; IT advisory, organization and transformation; change management; and business intelligence and performance management. Hitachi Consulting also offers environmental sustainability consulting solutions, and with the support of the Hitachi Ltd matrix of companies, is able to develop and deliver highly complex environmental infrastructure work.
As might be expected, tech solutions are a stronghold for the company. Hitachi Consulting is one of an elite group of Oracle Diamond Partners, deploys SAP and Microsoft Platform solutions, plus has its own outsourced product development division. Other offerings include: cloud computing; strategic technology solutions; outsourcing, quality assurance and testing, information and content management; enterprise application integration plus custom development services. Hitachi Consulting has also built a thriving business intelligence practice, leveraging the Hitachi Global Centers for Innovative Analytics to bring complex 'big data' analytics solutions to clients around the world.
