Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), is part of Global 500 parent company Hitachi Ltd., which provides information technologies, services and solutions to IT buyers in all major industries in more than 150 countries. As a long-term partner to HDS, we helped the company launch HDS Community and continue to serve as a strategic advisor to drive community growth.
“Hitachi Data Systems wanted to understand how an online community might help our customers, partners, and prospects learn more about our many offerings and solutions by engaging with us and each other. We worked with Leader Networks to develop and validate the strategy with a variety of key stakeholders within the ecosystem to ensure that we would meet or exceed their needs and identify key features and content requirements.”

“Vanessa was a delight to work with. She immediately understood what we were trying to achieve, asked probing questions in a non-confrontational way to help us uncover deep business drivers, translated the answers into a well articulated strategy, and developed a prioritized implementation plan. Throughout the process she really brought the team and our stakeholders together around a common language and goals. Can’t recommend her highly enough.”
– Nick Howe, Chief Learning Officer, Hitachi Data Systems
