Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. today unveiled what it described as the next phase of its Social Innovation business strategy.
Launched at the company’s Connect 2015 event in Las Vegas were:
* Hitachi Live Insight for IT Operations: A cloud-based M2M analytics offering, which the firm said enables users to analyze all the machine data in their data centre — from enterprise applications and data storage, to power distribution units and temperature sensors — to detect and identify the root cause of data center outages.
* Hitachi Clinical Repository (HCR) for Connected Health: A new release of HCR, expanded to support connected health with secure mobile access. HCR for connected health empowers healthcare professionals with data analytics, tools and proven delivery methods that let them adapt better to societal changes and increase strategic decision-making to optimize patient care, the company said.
HDS has announced several acquisitions over the past year to bolster its Social Innovation and analytics portfolio including Avrio, oXya, Pantascene and Pentaho.
“In a world where rampant data growth and increasing IT and organizational complexity are often the culprits for stunted business growth, vendors that can streamline the path to becoming a truly data-driven organization ultimately stand to gain significant mind and market share,” said Vernon Turner, senior vice president of enterprise systems at IDC.
