    Hitachi, Ltd. Research & Development Group

    The Research & Development Group is responsible for leading “collaborative creation” with customers. Specifically, a three prong approach is being taken: “customer-driven innovation” whereby research is conducted close to customers to identify and resolve challenges through such means as Hitachi’s unique service design methodologies; “technology-driven innovation” creating innovative products through the optimal combination of technologies, and “vision-driven innovation” to pioneer new areas guided by a creative vision and through open innovation.

    An important platform to enable these three types of innovation to dynamically interact and promote Hitachi’s Social Innovation Business, is big data. By collecting and analyzing big data from equipment and people on-site, new value can be generated by altering the components in the operation. Hitachi has abundant experience and know-how fostered over the years as a leading company in information and control technologies, as well as technology from experience in building societal infrastructure.

    This broad range of technologies, knowledge and experience will be leveraged to challenge issues and develop innovative solutions for a better future.
