Hitachi names new CTO to lead the pivot to pay-per-use computing

McGee will replace former A/NZ CTO Adrian De Luca, who becomes Asia-Pacific CTO

Hitachi Data Systems has appointed Andrew McGee as A/NZ chief technology officer to drive its shift to pay-per use computing.

McGee will replace former A/NZ CTO Adrian De Luca, who now becomes Asia-Pacific CTO for Hitachi Data Systems.

McGee will be responsible for creating solutions teams in the areas of converged infrastructure, advanced automated IT management, scale out computing, in-memory analytics, and remote branch office solutions. He said the company would be increasingly focusing on providing customers with continuous cloud infrastructure that enabled a non-disruptive shift to a new model of pay-per-use computing.

“My role will be to assist enterprises with that transition, and deliver agile and automated technology solutions that enable IT departments to successfully execute projects at speed,” he said. McGee joined Hitachi Data Systems in 2006 and has held a number of senior sales and solutions roles with the company.

He will manage an Australian-wide team of systems engineers and technical salespeople in his new role as presales director. He is also responsible for the technical capability of the team tasked with building solutions to meet an organisation’s challenges.

Hitachi Data Systems, regional vice president and general manager, Neil Evans, welcomed the appointment. “I am proud to announce the appointment of Andrew as ANZ CTO and presales director,” he said.

“For customers to realise their business vision, it is important for HDS to understand the evolving needs of the ANZ market.
