Before you head to Vegas for Hitachi NEXT, for what promises to the premier event for the digital revolution, this is a sneak peek of some of the game changers coming in  converged infrastructure.


For you kids at heart out there, this is not an early birthday present. You’ll have to wait until September 19th for that.

Here’s a glimpse into the latest technology and strategies to drive digital transformation. While digital transformation changes everything, it doesn’t come easy – especially for mature businesses who haven’t grown up digital. To succeed, business and technology leaders have to completely re-think traditional approaches.


With the accelerating pace of change in today’s business landscape, the inability to transform and stay ahead of the competition can be the death of a business (remember Blockbuster, Borders Books, MySpace?).


In this new digital era, where consumers are interacting with banks and retailers not just in their physical locations like a branch or store, but through multiple online channels, brands are staking their future on the online experience.


This integration between physical and digital touchpoints is the next step in the evolution of multichannel banking and retail. A world where consumers are connected usefully, either sequentially or simultaneously to any number of channels.


And the foundation of this digital transformation is data. The right data strategy enables banks and retailers to find and use the value that is already in their data and to create new business value.  There are four key ingredients to a successful data strategy:

  • Data infrastructure – deliver data agility through data independence
  • Data governance – to ensure control of enterprise data
  • Data mobility – move data freely and securely from any source, to any place, for any use
  • Data analytics – foster innovate through data-driven insights



A successful digital transformation is entirely dependent upon taking a strategic approach to enterprise data. Most companies have multiple data silos. Digital transformation starts with bringing those disparate data sets – whether structured, unstructured or machine-generated – into a single data strategy.


Hitachi offers customers an integrated and secure way to manage, govern, mobilize, analyze, and ultimately turn that data into insights that create new opportunities for business and society.


And your data strategy delivers maximum value only when it is deployed with a modern, agile I.T. environment – one that allows you to take advantage of cloud, open source, and emerging technologies to deliver I.T. services.


No one delivers modern, agile I.T. environment quite like Hitachi. Our upcoming announcements at Hitachi NEXT represent the evolution of Hitachi’s converged infrastructure and management automation strategy -- so you don’t want to miss it!
