Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Hitachi Content Platform.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
They should improve the user interface. It's a little bit complex. It does not have a self-learning method. You need to know how to use it before you touch the system. The user interface is not self-explanatory.
The vendor needs to come up with their own integration solutions. As it is now, they provide object storage that is used by a number of other vendors. They allow the partners to come up with the ideas. For example, Microsoft, Cisco, and others can promote their own solutions, but there is nothing directly from Hitachi. Hitachi needs to start working with all of its partners, globally. What is lacking in this solution is a simple process to migrate from existing systems.
In terms of what can be improved, normally they provide it as object storage, but they see that as a vendor they don't have the components to glue it. So they allow all the partners to come up with all the ideas. But when positioning, if Hitachi could also come up with their own sort of software to provide solutions, by OEM like Microsoft and all those, they would allow partners to promote their solutions to a partner store. Something like that. That's the way they should take this. Let's say from a partner point of view, we don't see what Hitachi does globally with the partners. That availability is not there. I think it would be good if they had a platform like that. And we can also co-sell to other countries. You can do a lot with the platform.
