HDS errrrr Hitachi Ventara just lost over 50 mil in deals to EMC at two of their long time large financial institutions because HV has lost its way.They gave up on the only thing keeping the lights on...storage sales.The core legecy reps who have long term strong relationships with very large companies are being forced out.This current crop of so called managers will drive the company out of business and they will all high five with their pockets filled with parting gifts.These GE castoffs will be like overpaid old has-beens baseball players with long term contracts.Getting paid to do NOTHING

That is exactly the problem. All the 3rd party equipment that we are trying to sell for a much higher price then our competitors. The one thing Hitachi was known for was their Quality of product. High end storage systems and server blade products that where top off the line. We almost didn't have any issues with them. But instead some people thought it was a good move to go with the 3rd party s**t that we have now. If you can buy quanta or ATOS equipment at a different vendor for half the price it is easy to decide what to go with.
GE Castoffs, so called managers, old has beens with long term contracts, etc. hahahahaha LOL
Just recycle them through all the tech companies and they can spew the same dialogue at another location.
Indeed it is so sad to see a once great company spiral to destruction. They started by laying off smart American engineers a year ago and shifting to third party contractors in India.
