HDS hooks into business consulting practice

HDS hooks into business consulting practice

Hitachi Data Systems has launched a trans-Tasman business consulting practice, based in Australia.

The practice offers strategic planning and operational best practices, focusing on five areas. These are data lifecycle management; identifying ways of reducing the operating expenses of company infrastructure and determining best uses for future expenditure; service management; consolidation and virtualisation (to lower the cost of ownership and simplify IT environments); and risk management.

Hitachi Data Systems has recruited four principal business consultants for the team, which is led by Australia/New Zealand consulting and solutions director Michael Cunningham.

He has been with the company for five years and in his last role built the professional services practice to a contribution of more than 13 percent of local revenues.

The consultants include Paul Louis with 20-years of IT industry experience, who was previously at Dimension Data and Software Spectrum, and 17-year veteran of the consulting industry, Paul MacPherson.

They are joined by Greg Cetinich, who has spent 17 years developing server consolidation and information archival strategies, application recovery strategies and large scale storage efficiency projects and Paul Bicknell, who has 20-years of experience in the defence industry in logistics, maintenance, warehousing and supply chain operations.
