Lenovo Infrastructure Solutions Group (ISG) has appointed Amit Luthra as the managing director for India. The executive joins the company with over 15 years of experience in information technology (IT) solutions, and most recently, served as the director and general manager for Dell’s storage platform solutions.
The Lenovo ISG is the company’s enterprise division that offers various enterprise solutions as a service. Alongside promoting Lenovo’s data centre and cloud products for businesses, Luthra will also lead the company’s edge computing, hybrid cloud, high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI), hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) and storage solutions divisions – all of which serve as various products in the enterprise solutions umbrella offered by Lenovo.
The appointment comes as sectors such as HPC witness strong demand across the world. In India, high performance computing has been seeing steady growth, buoyed by a growing adoption of cloud services in India across businesses of various scales. Reports suggest that HP Enterprise is the largest global vendor of HPC services with 37% market share, followed by Dell Enterprise and Lenovo ISG.
Lenovo ISG, the enterprise solutions division, was formed after the company recently restructured its overall business. In September 2021, Amar Babu, president of Lenovo APAC told Mint that the adoption of cloud platforms, consumption of large data sets driven by the internet of things (IoT), connected infrastructure and 5G services, has boosted the growth of enterprise technologies in India.
Other sectors, such as edge computing, are also projected to grow heavily. The global market is tipped to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31.1% between 2022 and 2028, to reach $55.9 billion in the next six years. Luthra will look to help Lenovo India take a share of these segments, going forward.
Previously, Luthra has held leadership positions in companies such as Sun Microsystems and HCL.
