Hitachi Review

Highlight

New uses for IT are leading to growing activity in initiatives aimed at innovation in manufacturing and other parts of the social infrastructure. Drawing on the strength of its experience in control systems for social infrastructure and other industries, Hitachi is also working on fusing these with information systems. The symbiotic autonomous decentralization concept is the key to creating new value through interoperation between different systems. Hitachi intends to pursue further advances in social infrastructure and industrial systems by expanding, into a wider range of industries, the platforms it offers that are based on this concept and built using associated technologies.
