In response to this award, Brad Surak, Hitachi Vantara’s chief product and strategy officer, said,
“Hitachi is honored to be recognized by IoT Breakthrough with the IoT Innovation Award for Enterprise Solution of the Year and we congratulate our fellow winners. The many breakthrough capabilities of the Lumada platform wouldn’t be possible without the learnings and insights gained in co-creating IoT solutions with our customers.

This award helps to validate two of the trends that I identified for 2018. The adoption of IoT platforms to facilitate the application of IoT solutions and the co-creation of value through the process of collaborating with customers and ecosystem players in order to innovate and create new value for business stakeholders, customers and society at large. Many of the companies that were recognized on the IoT Breakthrough Awards list are our partners and part of the co-creation ecosystem along with our many customers.
