Hitachi Simplifies Development of IoT Solution announces Lumada IoT Core Platform

Hitachi Insight group

Hitachi Insight Group, a body of Hitachi’s global unified Internet of Things (IoT) business and strategy announces Lumada, an IoT core platform.  The new commencement is touted be a comprehensive, enterprise-grade IoT core platform with an open and adaptable architecture that simplifies IoT solution creation and customization.

Designed to address the challenges associated with IoT solution creation, the solution’s unique open and adaptable architecture makes it broadly applicable for a wider array of industries and use cases, providing an extensible, flexible platform from which Hitachi and its customers and partners can easily tailor solutions or co-create.

It incorporates expansive expertise in operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT), blending powerful and proven data orchestration, streaming analytics, content intelligence, simulation models, and other Hitachi software technologies.

Lumada accelerates synthesizing of actionable insights, delivering faster time to value and supporting better decisions that lead to real world outcomes, like increased productivity and safety, streamlined processes, reduced operational costs and carbon footprint, or improved quality of life. The platform is known to serve as the core foundation on which all of Hitachi’s IoT solutions are built and will enable the creation of IoT business ecosystems.

“IoT platforms unquestionably have an important role to play in the development and deployment of IoT solutions. However, they can introduce new layers of complexities, which can hinder the implementation and benefits of the solutions themselves,” said Christian Renaud, research director, IoT, at 451 Research. “While it is still very early days in the IoT platform market, the landscape is crowded, making it difficult for new vendors to differentiate themselves. Hitachi’s extensive expertise in OT and IT gives them a unique understanding of the fundamental requirements to build and deploy IoT solutions at scale. This allows Hitachi to help customers get actionable business insight that translates into real business value, faster.”

Lumada provides three key qualities that set it apart from other IoT platforms in the market today:

  • Open: Lumada offers an open, flexible architecture that simplifies integration with complementary technologies from Hitachi’s IoT partner ecosystem and provides an extensible foundation from which to build solutions for a variety of industry applications. It was specifically designed to encourage and support open innovation, co-creation and accelerated solution development with Hitachi’s partners, global system integrators (GSIs) and customers.
  • Adaptable: Lumada provides a more flexible approach to IoT solution development. Its heterogeneous architecture allows it to support a range of IoT applications and partner technologies to support more highly agile environments that are easier to build-on and extend. This provides comprehensive support for digital ecosystems across multiple industries.
    Lumada’s solution cores are packaged as repeatable blueprints that can be tailored to support a variety of industries and applications, such as predictive maintenance, city data exchanges, connected healthcare, intelligent transportation, oil and gas, sustainable energy, and more. The platform allows users to easily select and integrate only the components that best fit their specific use case to simplify customization and further streamline the solution creation process for the fastest time to value.
  • Verified: Information security and digital ethics are top priorities for Hitachi. Lumada is architected from trusted Hitachi commercial technologies, including Pentaho’s advanced data orchestration, visualization and analytics software—deployed in more than 1,600 enterprise customer environments today—and Hitachi Streaming Data Platform (HSDP), used in a range of Hitachi technologies and solutions. Lumada also provides a variety of Hitachi control systems, including manufacturing production systems, algorithms and controllers to support a range of industry applications and content intelligence for advanced metadata management.

Lumada provides a comprehensive framework of key IoT solution building blocks, including edge device and connectivity integration, application integration, data integration and orchestration, data repositories, stream and batch data processing, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, simulation tools, repeatable solution blueprints, and enterprise services.

Hitachi’s robust IoT portfolio includes services and solutions for public safety, City Data Exchange for smart city, renewable and sustainable energy, intelligent transportation, precision agriculture and manufacturing, water treatment and building systems, sustainable mining, and more.

Hitachi at the IoT World Conference and Expo – Santa Clara, CA, May 10-12 will showcase its IoT solutions and the Lumada IoT Core Platform. One can visit booth #310 for hands-on demonstrations.
