More Social Innovation from HDS - but that's probably not what you think


Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) is an important part of its parent company's Social Innovation strategy to combine the group's IT and operational technology expertise. Further fruits of that strategy are coming to market.

This time last year, HDS revealed a new strategy intended to take advantage of the wider Hitachi group's involvement in many sectors including telecommunications, energy and healthcare.

Since then, the company has announced Hitachi Visualization for Public Safety (integration, analysis and visualisation of data from cameras, sensors, emergency dispatch and social media for law enforcement) and Hitachi Live Insight for Telecom (analytics to provide communications service providers with real-time insights about their networks).

Two more systems are being added to HDS's Social Innovation family.

Hitachi Live Insight for IT Operations allows analysis of all the machine data from a data centre to detect and identify the root cause of outages. This can cover everything from applications to temperature sensors.

The company offers an associated analytics accelerator service so that customers can gain actionable insights more quickly.

Hitachi Clinical Repository (HCR) for Connected Health is based on Hitachi Content Platform technology to provide a multipurpose repository for all clinical and nonclinical data.

This makes patient records and health information sharable and discoverable across multiple caregivers, and provides sophisticated analytics.

HCR also provides secure mobile access.

In related news, HDS announced the Hitachi Live Insight Center of Excellence to help organisations test, customise and deploy advanced data analytics.

The centre can assist customers develop their big data and analytics strategies, customise Social Innovation solutions, and deploy them more quickly.

"Our Social Innovation solutions and services leverage a broad spectrum of advanced technologies and considerable expertise from the Hitachi family of companies," said HDS senior vice president for social innovation and global industries Kevin Eggleston.

"From data scientists to data algorithms, machine-to-machine and big data analytics, and operational technology, we have the abundant resources and embedded expertise to help organisations address real-world challenges through data innovation and accomplish more in the areas that matter most."
