TOKYO and SANTA CLARA, Calif. – January 13, 2022 - Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501, "Hitachi") has received an overall positive rating in the 2021 Gartner Vendor Rating report.

Through more than 110 years of OT expertise and 60 years of its deep IT expertise, Hitachi is focused on accelerating the digital transformation of social infrastructure from energy to mobility and transportation to finance and healthcare. In 2021, Hitachi significantly strengthened the global engineering and execution capabilities for its Lumada digital portfolio by acquiring the design and engineering prowess of GlobalLogic.

Last October, Hitachi became a principal partner for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) and committed to leveraging its expertise to become a climate change innovator. Hitachi also elevated its climate target to contribute to a Net Zero Society by achieving carbon neutrality through its entire value chain by 2050.
