As companies from Japan and many other countries have been expanding into India at a rapid pace, and the growth of business of Indian companies has resulted in an increase in IT investment, the demand for IT services has also been growing exponentially. Amidst this growth, Japanese corporations, in sectors ranging from automobile parts to food manufacturing, are also very actively establishing companies in the southern region of India, with its abundant labor pool and proximity to ports.
Given this development, Hitachi Systems and Hitachi Systems Micro Clinic are reinforcing their services provision structure in southern region of India in order to meet the demand for IT services increasing on a daily basis in the region, and we held this seminar related to information security measures, a high-priority need for Japanese companies.
Both companies plan to continue to strengthen their one-stop services provision structure, which includes everything from IT device procurement to systems design/configuration, monitoring/operation, and maintenance, while also providing a wide range of advanced services finely tuned to the requirements of companies digitalizing their operations as a part of our efforts to help expand the business of Japanese companies moving into India.
