"The market demand for DX continues to grow at a fast pace, as global brands increasingly leverage digital technologies to create new revenue streams and better engage customers," said Nitesh Banga, Chief Operating Officer, GlobalLogic. "GlobalLogic and Hitachi are well positioned to address this need, and the launch of the collaboration Hub will be a great first step in bringing expanded DX capability to the Japan market."
Recently acquired by Hitachi in July 2021 and operating as a Hitachi Group Company, GlobalLogic is a leader in Digital Engineering services, with capabilities that span Strategy, Experience Design, and Chip-to-Cloud software engineering. GlobalLogic not only provides upstream services such as product ideation, but also implements that vision into actual products, platforms and experiences.
Hitachi has the expertise and experience in DX that has been cultivated in the Lumada business, including design thinking and data science, and is working with customers and partners to create new value by combining wisdom and ideas.
As the first project to leverage the strengths of both companies, Hitachi and GlobalLogic have begun work to accelerate the transformation of Hitachi's Storage business into a cloud-based "as-a-Service" business model. This initiative will enable Hitachi and GlobalLogic to create and customize joint service offerings for the Japanese market.
About the Collaboration Between Hitachi and GlobalLogic
Lumada Innovation Hub Tokyo and GlobalLogic's design studios and engineering centers around the globe are connected online, and workshops are being conducted for collaborative projects, leveraging GlobalLogic's extensive DX implementation experience, experience design, and capabilities in Chip-to-Cloud software engineering. Hitachi and GlobalLogic will implement projects that accelerate DX for customers in Japan.
Design thinkers(3) from Lumada Innovation Hub Tokyo, with expertise in the industries and businesses of the Japanese market, will work with Hitachi business stakeholders and GlobalLogic's designers and solution architects to identify transformational goals. GlobalLogic's rapid problem-solving approach will be applied to develop DX strategies and quickly create business model prototypes.
An example of a collaborative project
The first workshop was held for Hitachi's storage business, where Hitachi and GlobalLogic worked on architectures to enhance cloud readiness. By leveraging GlobalLogic's digital engineering services, Hitachi will strengthen and accelerate its "as-a-Service" model for its storage business. Hitachi and GlobalLogic will apply the outcomes of this workshop to Hitachi's other product businesses to accelerate DX for our customers.
Based on the new, co-created business process established through this project, Hitachi will test its applicability against a variety of digital transformation projects, and plans to launch the service to Japanese customers in fiscal 2022.
In the future, GlobalLogic's more than 22,000 design and software engineering professionals around the world, and Hitachi's 35,000 digital professionals will work together through the Lumada Innovation Hub Tokyo to promote Social Innovation Businesses that leverage digital technology to solve problems faced by customers and society globally, including the Japanese market.
