Hitachi Vantara Unlocks Data-Driven Innovation Through an Edge-to-Cloud Data Fabric Built on Its Intelligent DataOps Portfolio for Enterprise and Industrial Customers
Hitachi Vantara, the digital infrastructure, data management, analytics, and digital solutions subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd., introduced new Lumada DataOps capabilities for automated, AI-driven data operations for all enterprise customers and Lumada Industrial DataOps, providing advanced analytics capabilities for industrial use cases.
Data sprawl and governance have become more difficult as data becomes increasingly distributed across the data center, edge, hybrid, and public cloud infrastructure. This complexity can hinder an organization’s ability to turn data into business value. In a recent DataOps Survey by 451 Research, data privacy, compliance, and data access and preparation are top priorities for data-driven organizations.
Today’s additions to the Lumada DataOps portfolio allow organizations to create a seamless data fabric governed by an enhanced data catalog for automated data quality improvements and governance. With the latest updates to Data Integration powered by Pentaho technology, customers can reduce time and complexity to discover, access, prepare and blend data across multiple data sources and locations. The new Lumada Industrial DataOps portfolio includes IoT analytics models for industrial environments that seamlessly merge IT and OT data to unlock transformational business insights.

One of our key customers that utilizes Hitachi Vantara technology is Disney Parks and Resorts. Hitachi Vantara is the Official Ride and Show Analytics provider for the WALT DISNEY WORLD Resort and the DISNEYLAND Resort.
“In order to maintain our complex ride systems, we are constantly capturing and ingesting data from multiple touchpoints throughout the ride, striving to optimize efficiency in our systems and continuing to keep the attraction experience as seamless as possible,” said Michael Tschanz, director of Design & Engineering Technology & Analysis at Disney. One project I personally think is the coolest thing we’ve worked on together this year is our development of the Digital Twin analysis technology,” Digital Twin simulations help us solve the challenge of doing analysis on certain areas of our attractions where we aren’t able to put sensors. This innovation will result in even higher levels of analytic accuracy.”
“The data integration capabilities provided by Pentaho have been instrumental in wrangling our diverse datasets and delivering data-driven insights that enable our organization to make effective, cross-functional decisions,” said Dale Bloom, credit risk analytics manager at MarketAxess, the leading fixed income electronic trading platform for institutional investors and dealers. “The new data store integrations allow us to flexibly connect even more data, easily identify and establish controls that address data flow disruptions, and seamlessly deploy in hybrid environments to better serve our lines of business.”
“Centrica serves millions of residential and business customers with a full range of energy services and products which extends to include insurance, repair services and intelligent energy management solutions. Every Centrica brand is highly customer focused and we rely on accurate data to drive new innovations in sustainable energy and to empower communities to use energy efficiently. The speed at which we can discover and apply insights from data allows us to continually improve our customer experience and achieve our Zero Carbon energy targets. Lumada Data Catalog enables us to fully automate data discovery across our hybrid data fabric and ensures we can meet our regulatory compliance commitments effectively. Working with Hitachi Vantara to enhance our data privacy controls also helps us to reduce operational risks and to demonstrate our commitment to our customers as their trusted energy supplier,” said Eddie Edwards, global head of data at Centrica Plc.
“Our Partners are looking to deliver more Data Management Solutions and Services that drive business agility and value from their data at a significantly lower TCO and faster realization of benefits,” said Omar Galbraith, CEO of Ethos Technology, a UK Based Hitachi Vantara Distributor of Innovative Technology. “Lumada DataOps has enabled us to elevate our conversations with partners that have migrated to providing automation of data management across Hybrid Cloud so they can speed up how data can be applied, governed, protected, served and consumed within their clients. Partners can build up a portfolio of value-added managed services that elevates them beyond the traditional one-off transactional supply of products.”
