The automotive industry has been a leader in factory automation over the past 30 years. Much of the difficult, repetitive, physical work of producing cars – like welding, painting, assembly, etc. - is now done by industrial robots. While this automation has delivered benefits, it has also increased the complexity of managing and maintaining the factory. And in some cases, high levels of hard automation have reduced production flexibility. Today’s “fourth industrial revolution” is enabled by digitization: harvesting the vast amounts of data in these automated factories, to improve productivity/quality/flexibility through advanced analytics and cognitive systems. This webinar will introduce some of the key opportunities for digitizing automotive production, based on Hitachi’s experience in the sector. · Digitization of Manufacturing: Opportunities & Challenges· Three Digitization Opportunities: Welding, Painting, Assembly· Conclusions & Lessons Learned

A recent Forbes survey shows that Digital Transformation will be the highest priority for both IT and line-of-business executives in 2017. Business outcomes will drive IT, and IT will shift its focus from infrastructure to application development and analytics. Some of the major trends for 2017 will redefine the data center and focus on a number of key technologies that will enable the transition from legacy systems to systems of innovation. Operational Technology (OT) from sensors will begin to integrate with IT, and the foundation will be established for Internet of Things (IoT) developments that are currently in the proof-of-concept stage.
Businesses have to transform to keep ahead of competition and digital disruptors. It’s important for organizations to leverage data and technology for automating operations and processes, increase customer loyalty, attract new markets and grow revenue streams. Real time personalized customer services are dependent on constant analysis of vast amounts of data. This requires a robust, highly available IT infrastructure powered by purpose built Flash that provides speed, efficiency and agility to better serve customers while handling exponential data growth.While flash data reduction capabilities viz. compression and deduplication bring huge savings in terms of capacity, power and cooling it is important to understand that not all Flash technologies are same.HDS’ new systems with SVOS 7 software offerings include efficiencies that reduce storage needs by 5:1, intelligent flash-aware IO stack with predictable, low latency performance and guaranteed data availability to deliver new business models faster and more efficiently.
Managing high data growth rates is a key data center challenge for IT teams. In fact, data is expected to grow at a 44% CAGR through at least 2020. So it’s no surprise that flash storage is taking the storage market by storm. To help simplify this data management challenge and maintain high performance, companies are moving to a hybrid cloud storage approach. In fact, according to IDC, cloud will comprise 49% of enterprise storage spend in 2016 and is estimated to reach 54% by 2020.Join us for a live webcast with IDC on November 17, 2016 at Noon ET, 9:00 a.m. PT, where we will offer insights, trends and key benefits of moving your data center to a hybrid cloud storage environment.Topics that will be discussed include:•Cloud-based, cost-effective economics •Data tiering that improves efficiencies •Smarter archiving that improves performance and data protection operations
Faced with a complex and heterogeneous infrastructure, even the normal storage management tasks, like performance forecasts, capacity management and SLA management, are complex, time-consuming and costly to be done. Continuous reliability is also challenging to maintain. Concerning to the problem, HDS evolves its Analytic Driven Storage Management. Let’s watch the video to see how can we help!
Digital Enterprises, System Integrators and Cloud Service Providers require diverse hybrid cloud solutions in order to provide the right services for their complex mix of traditional and cloud-ready applications.

A large number of high-tech companies have enjoyed tremendous initial success, only to see their primacy wane as markets, economies and technologies evolve in what seems a blink of the eye. The current industry restructuring is raising many questions related to how IT will continue to change. Will IT as a Service (ITaaS) emerge? How will storage be impacted ted? In the future, what role will cloud and managed services play in business? As the prevailing IT environment transitions from stability, accuracy and predictability to speed and agility, we can expect to see new metrics of success and failure emerge, marked by an emphasis on speed, agility, time-to-business value, efficiency and total cost to operate. Forward-thinking and outcome-based strategies will prove to be vital in the data-driven, ever-changing culture of modern IT. Join us for a live webcast on March 23, 2016, to hear from an industry expert about the changes that are happening in our IT world today and tomorrow .
Customers need a modern architecture that supports a blended data lake. Implementation of the right data lake prepares you for future needs and the support of Internet of Things (IoT).

Companies that are serious about moving to on-demand, service-led delivery recognise that they need to change from horizontally organised IT to vertically aligned IT. This has a huge impact on the day-to-day role of domain architects and enables them to move from a tactical to a strategic role. For example, instead of executing repetitive low-level provisioning tasks they now define policies and resource pools and manage service classes so that infrastructure can be consumed on-demand from a cloud management portal. In order to support this transition we need new management tools that can accelerate time to market and eliminate the operational handoffs between domain architects for hypervisor, server, network and storage layers.Join this discussion with the Hitachi Private Cloud team who can share how Hitachi can guide you through this transition as you adapt your role and remain relevant in the world of cloud.

CIOs increasingly need to care about the finances and costs of IT. They must create services that business segments demand and align them with IT resources from other sources (like cloud providers). Internal IT has to compare and compete with new commercial offerings that are often sold directly to the business. IT will see major transformations in delivery and ownership over the next few years, and IT managers will need better transparency in internal costs in order to be relevant and competitive. There are many cases where IT departments need to act more like profit centers, treating internal users like customers and potentially even brokering several service models. New methods of metering, service level agreement management, chargeback and service flexibility are required. By attending this webcast, you’ll learn how to: •Understand what a CIO requires to know the true costs of IT.•Communicate with lines of business about internal and external IT delivery and service options.•Not be seduced by low prices (software as a service, platform as a service) and to communicate and measure total costs of IT.•Identify, measure and set plans to reduce IT costs.
