The UK's New Advanced Azuma Trains Accelerate Faster ...

"This is a hugely important moment for passengers on the East Coast. Our new fleet of Azumas will … propel one of the UK's most prestigious lines into the 21st century." – Sir Richard Branson.

With quick acceleration, fast journey times and better comfort, Hitachi's brand new, highly advanced Azuma trains will service the UK's East Coast from 2018. The 65 trains will provide an extra 12,200 seats, and with an expanded timetable, they will increase capacity into London's King's Cross station by 28 percent during peak times. They will be operated by Virgin Trains and will be called Virgin Azuma. Literally translated as “East” in Japanese, Azuma are state-of-the-art Intercity Express trains that will transform rail travel for passengers between London, northeast England and Scotland. Among the trains' many benefits are lower emissions, more direct services, greater comfort, fast and free Wi-Fi, and of course, faster journey times.

Achieving High Efficiency in Job Management

Hitachi Asia offers a solution that enhances job management efficiency, boosts data accuracy and improves IT and end-user productivity

IT support for Toshiba Singapore's operations comes primarily from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV (formerly Navision) ERP system running on Wintel servers. While the ERP system came with a job manager, this could not alert IT staff and end-users when jobs sent to and received from other systems failed to run properly. To ensure that such EDI-type jobs ran without hitches, one IT staff member had to be assigned to job monitoring. Frequently this person had to stay back after office hours to make sure jobs ran properly. With Hitachi JP1/Automatic Job Management System, Toshiba Singapore managed to achieve high efficiency in job management, at the same time reducing the administrative burden on its IT team and end-users and improving data accuracy.

Simplifying and Automating Liquidity Risk Management

LG Hitachi helps a Korean agricultural cooperative get a better idea of its funds

This is the first of two case studies on the National Agricultural Cooperative Federation of Korea. A liquidity risk management system was vital for its day-to-day operations, but the one it had was too large and too slow in identifying ways funding could be used immediately. LG Hitachi provided a solution that speeded up processes and identified factors, without any additional hardware required.
