According to a recent announcement, BT, a communications services and solutions provider, and Hitachi Vantara have launched a global partnership to co-create innovative solutions in the area of IIoT and enterprise IoT. The partnership aims to drive better business outcomes for global customers, including greater efficiency, productivity and cost savings. The companies will initially focus on exploring and designing asset intelligence and predictive maintenance solutions to deliver the desired outcomes for customers in industry sectors such as manufacturing and transportation.

“Our partnership with Hitachi will help BT to accelerate innovation and ease the path to digitalization and IoT for our customers around the globe,” said Bas Burger, CEO Global Services, BT. Hitachi’s OT, IT and IoT expertise, long-standing customer engagements and its Lumada IoT Platform will combine ideally with our global infrastructure, cloud services and cybersecurity expertise to create powerful IoT offerings that will help maximise the success of our global customers’ digital transformation journeys.”

The partnership unites BT’s global network infrastructure, cloud capabilities and cyber security expertise with Hitachi’s operational and information technology (OT/IT) expertise, Lumada IoT platform software and integrated IoT services and solutions portfolio.

“IoT represents a critical inflection point, in which the interests of business, industry and society are now intersecting and aligning like never before,” said Ryuichi Otsuki, CEO, Hitachi Vantara and VP, Hitachi. “We see the creation of strategic partnerships with leaders and market makers like BT as a critical underpinning to Hitachi’s IoT strategy as we move our company and business into the next phase of its evolution.”

The first business solutions resulting from this collaboration are expected to be available in Q1 2018.
