From cocktail napkin to global recognition

At the 2003 Microsoft Partner Awards, a savvy entrepreneur and his two business partners were captivated with new enterprise software that promised to revolutionize the way people do business. Inspired by what was to be Dynamics—and the partners who evangelized it—the trio sketched their vision on a cocktail napkin. In 2004, they founded Iteration2, a company built on Microsoft innovation, technology expertise, and a passion for customers. The very next year they were named U.S. Business Solutions Partner of Year.

Over the years, we’ve acquired several companies who have helped us expand geographically and add to our portfolio of expertise and skills. Once Capax Global joined the team, we were finally able to realize our founders’ dream of supporting 100 percent of the Microsoft ecosystem—from D365 to Azure to Modern Workplace to IoT and more.

Today, their pioneering spirit lives on through Hitachi Solutions America. Although the name has changed, the guiding principle is the same—to help clients be more competitive and successful through Microsoft digital transformation technology.


Pioneering Spirit

Emerging Expertise

In 2006, Iteration2 won the 2nd consecutive US Business Solutions Partner of the Year award (no Microsoft partner had ever accomplished that level of success at that time or since). In 2007, Hitachi Consulting acquires Iteration2, strengthening the foundation for what will eventually be Hitachi Solutions America, Business Solution Group.
