NIIT Technologies on Wednesday joined hands with Hitachi Information Systems of Japan to offer services in ‘cloud computing’, an emerging mega-trend which is standardised IT capability delivered via the Internet in a pay-per-use and self-service manner.

“Hitachi with its reliable and scalable infrastructure would own the ‘cloud’, while NIIT Technologies will harness its competencies and world-class process capability in remote infrastructure managed services to operate the ‘cloud’.

Together, our customers will experience the highest quality of reliability, security and service,” said NIIT Technologies CEO Arvind Thakur.

With ‘cloud computing’ gaining impetus, both companies would be able to offer the complete portfolio of services around the ‘cloud’ infrastructure to cater to the changing IT landscape, he added.

To begin with, Hitachi Information Systems would leverage NIIT Technologies’ data centre in Bangkok and create the first hub outside Japan, networked to their existing infrastructure.
