Hitachi is looking to acquisitions to bolster its capabilities in cloud, big data and the Internet of Things

Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) the storage-focused subsidiary of Hitachi announced plans to acquire SAP and cloud service specialist oXya. The move comes barely a week after the firm signalled its intent to gobble up big data Pentaho.

oXya provides cloud infrastructure services based on Hitachi technology and specialises in hybrid cloud deployments of SAP workloads including SAP HANA, the company’s in-memory technology. Hitachi said the acquisition, which will see oXya’s 500 employees join HDS, will bolster its managed services portfolio and add valuable SAP expertise to its arsenal.

The company said it plans to redevelop the Hitachi Unified Compute Platform solution to include capabilities for environments based on solutions from SAP, including SAP HANA.

“Today’s partners and customers demand as-a-service options that enable them to keep pace with market dynamics like cloud, while transforming the way they conduct business,” said Hicham Abdessamad, executive vice president, global services, Hitachi Data Systems. “oXya offers an expanded set of application-as-a-service offerings, both in private cloud and hybrid cloud. They have vast experience with managing large SAP solution-based environments and a history of excellent customer satisfaction.”

Frederic de Belloy, chairman and vice president of oXya said: “Building upon years of successful partnership, we are pleased to grow our relationship beyond that of a Hitachi Cloud Service Provider to officially become part of the Hitachi Data Systems family.”

Hitachi seems to be on a spending spree as of late, having just last week announced its intent to acquire big data and ETL specialist Pentaho to bolster its big data and Internet of Things strategy, and the latest purchase seems aimed at bolstering its cloud capabilities with respect to familiar enterprise workloads. Infosys made similar moves this week with its acquisition of Panaya, a firm specialising in automating, fine-tuning and upgrading SAP and Oracle workloads.
