The federal subisidiary of Hitachi Vantara has developed an as-a-service platform in a move to help government clients and industry partners expand their access to the company's data-based technology products and services.

The new offering is built upon a traditional aaS model and comprises information technology infrastructure, data technology and REAN Cloud services. Hitachi Vantara Federal acquired REAN Cloud last year.

“As the quantity of data our federal customers must tackle continues to escalate, so does the need for them to have faster, easier access to proven data services and data management solutions,“ said Dave Turner, president and CEO of Hitachi Vantara Federal.

Turner added the company seeks to help partners and customers advance their requirements for system modernization projects through an aaS portfolio.

Hitachi Vantara Federal announced the offering to government technology professionals during the firm's 2019 Partner Summit.
