Big data is one of the most important revolutions since the Internet. The holistic Hitachi 3-pillar approach includes:
Data is everywhere. It's everywhere you can think of – smartphones, cars and of course the Internet. And it's everywhere that you haven't thought of – trains, wind turbines, farms and more.
Ultimately, the value in big data is in gaining insight from it – insight through analytics. Though analytics itself is not new, with big data we now have a much wider array of data sources that can drive this insight. New technologies like Hadoop, object stores and in-memory databases along with increased economies of scale let you process unprecedented volumes and varieties of data. Now you can get new levels of insight much faster than ever before.
New data, new technology challenges, and new opportunities – Welcome to the world of big data, welcome to our world.
Every company struggles with data growth, complexity, rising costs and the need to do more with fewer resources and budget. Though the end goal with big data is to gain insight, it all starts with an effective way of capturing, storing, managing and controlling the underlying data. It’s fair to say that the right infrastructure can make or break your big data projects.
Our primary strategy is to offer one platform for all data, and our reputation is for performance, scalability and reliability. Rest assured that we deliver the right foundation for big data whether it is on your premises or in the cloud. Our infrastructure solutions not only help you manage data growth and keep cost and complexity down, but they help you unlock hidden value and insight too.
Big data is transforming how business does analytics. Insight is no longer confined to the database, and the applications and data sources stretch way beyond the traditional data center. New technologies, techniques and skill sets are needed and the stakes could not be higher for IT.
At Hitachi, we have a long history of analytics innovation in our research labs. From predictive analytics and pattern detection, to smart ingest of stream data, to rich media analytics, to end-to-end solutions that even help society improve.
Our data scientists work with our partners and customers to solve analytics problems today and develop the innovations needed for the big data of tomorrow.
The world is undergoing a vast transformation. The need for leading-edge technologies and services to upgrade public infrastructure and improve lives has never been greater.
Through its Social Innovation Business, the Hitachi Group provides total solutions for sustainable, urban development worldwide. The solutions address critical issues in urban transportation infrastructure, access to clean water, and more. At the same time Hitachi keeps a sharp eye on sustainability and the conservation of our world's supply of precious natural resources.
Advanced information technology and analytics are vital to this mission. Hitachi Data Systems is developing data center technologies that organize and store vast quantities of unstructured data. Of course we use our deep domain expertise to develop highly integrated and optimized analytics.
