Hitachi Vantara unlocks data-driven innovation through an edge-to-cloud data fabric built on its intelligent DataOps portfolio for enterprise and industrial customers

By Hitachi Vantara

COMPANY NEWS: Hitachi Vantara, the digital infrastructure, data management, analytics, and digital solutions subsidiary of Hitachi, 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 centre, edge, hybrid, and public cloud infrastructure. This complexity can hinder an organisation’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 organisations.

Today’s additions to the Lumada DataOps portfolio allow organisations 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.

“Unlike traditional data management solutions that lock customers into proprietary technologies, the Lumada DataOps and Lumada Industrial DataOps portfolio products augment any ecosystem to manage and govern data from anywhere,” said Hitachi Vantara chief product officer Radhika Krishnan. “No matter where our clients’ data lives, we help them discover, analyse, govern and monetise it through Lumada DataOps in addition to data and analytics consulting services, helping clients propel their business with better data insights.”

Intelligent Data Operations Across the Edge to Multicloud Data Fabric Lumada DataOps lets you automate the daily tasks of collecting, integrating, governing, and analysing data on an intelligent platform providing an open and composable foundation for all enterprise data, while providing self-service data access to their choice of tools and analytics. Today’s updates to Lumada DataOps include:

Data Catalogue – Accelerate business insights with Data Catalogue v7.0 using trusted data built on IO-Tahoe technology including a powerful new user interface, data quality and Collibra connectivity.
Data Integration – Integrate data across hybrid cloud with Pentaho v9.3 through flexible cloud deployment and new connectors for cloud data stores like Snowflake, MongoDB Atlas, Teradata, Elastic Search7.x and IBM MQ 9.2.

IT and OT data convergence for digital industrial operations
Hitachi Vantara’s new Lumada Industrial DataOps portfolio enables real-time insights and outcomes that power critical operations to be more predictable and manageable. It accelerates IT and OT data convergence by building a data fabric for analytic solutions from edge to multi-cloud. Lumada Industrial DataOps IIoT software automates data pipeline delivery across OT and IT sources, feeding industrial AI and ML models for predictive maintenance and operations optimisation. Capabilities of the new Lumada Industrial DataOps portfolio include:

IIoT Core – Accelerate and scale operation application deployment with a complete IIoT data platform including core, gateway, digital twins, and machine learning services.

IIoT Analytics – Simplify AI and ML solutions creation through toolkits that simplify delivery through packaged digital twins with pre-trained ML models.

Armed with clean, accurate data, organisations can leverage advanced operational analytics capabilities like digital twins and AI/ML models to predict and prescribe operational decision making.

One of our key customers that utilises 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 optimise efficiency in our systems and continuing to keep the attraction experience as seamless as possible,” said Disney director design and engineering technology and analysis Michael Tschanz.

“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 organisation to make effective, cross-functional decisions,” said MarketAxess credit risk analytics manager Dale Bloom. “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 Centrica global head of data Eddie Edwards.

“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 realisation of benefits,” said Ethos Technology (a UK-based Hitachi Vantara distributor of innovative technology) Omar Galbraith. “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.”

“Organisations of all kinds are quickly realising the value of a data strategy that taps the full breadth of resources across the organisation from customer, operation and live edge environments,” said Ventana Research senior vice president and research director Dave Menninger. “Hitachi Vantara’s Lumada solutions help organisations discover, analyse and distribute data and compelling insights to the right stakeholders.”
