TOKYO -- Hitachi is forming a new U.S. company tasked with managing businesses at the intersection of hardware and data in an effort to compete with General Electric and Siemens for a bigger piece of rising global infrastructure demand.
The Tokyo-based conglomerate will merge information technology unit Hitachi Data Systems and data analytics company Pentaho on Wednesday to form Hitachi Vantara. The new California-based company will be entrusted with expanding Hitachi's "internet of things" operations to over 130 countries and oversee roughly 7,000 employees, or a third of the conglomerate's IT personnel.
