Hitachi has been working with operational technologies for more than a century, has more than 50 years of experience in IT solutions, and is an early pioneer of IoT innovation.

Emerging technologies, such as IoT, AI and blockchain, are critical assets for companies that want to achieve greater efficiency, improved productivity, stronger resilience and long-term sustainable growth. Keynote session attendees will learn how to apply these technologies to eliminate siloed business operations and create modern, interconnected digital workflows that have real-time visibility and responsiveness.

“To many customers, the ‘why’ of integrating IoT, AI and blockchain into their business is a compelling strategic imperative, yet the ‘how’ is hard to envision,” said Beverly Rider, Senior Vice President and CCO at Hitachi. “Attendees will have the opportunity to see in very tangible ways how Hitachi Consulting and Oracle put these solutions to work to make businesses more efficient, productive and profitable.”
