  • Digitization of Automotive Manufacturing Recorded: Nov 9 2017 48 mins
    Greg Kinsey, Vice President Industrial Solutions, Hitachi Vantara
    The automotive industry has been a leader in factory automation over the past 30 years. Much of the difficult, repetitive, physical work of producing cars – like welding, painting, assembly, etc. - is now done by industrial robots. While this automation has delivered benefits, it has also increased the complexity of managing and maintaining the factory. And in some cases, high levels of hard automation have reduced production flexibility. Today’s “fourth industrial revolution” is enabled by digitization: harvesting the vast amounts of data in these automated factories, to improve productivity/quality/flexibility through advanced analytics and cognitive systems. This webinar will introduce some of the key opportunities for digitizing automotive production, based on Hitachi’s experience in the sector.

    · Digitization of Manufacturing: Opportunities & Challenges
    · Three Digitization Opportunities: Welding, Painting, Assembly
    · Conclusions & Lessons Learned
  • Reduce Storage TCO by up to 61% Recorded: Nov 1 2017 62 mins
    Scott Baker, Sr. Director, Emerging Business Portfolio
    Many people believe that renting public cloud storage is more cost-effective than purchasing on-premises storage, but it’s not.

We’ll demonstrate how Hitachi Content Platform’s (HCP) new features, including multi-site erasure coding, deliver a predictable, reliable experience for your IT team. HCP not only rivals, but beats, the total cost of ownership associated with public cloud options.

    Attendees will receive a link to an online object-storage economic impact calculator that will allow them to discover potential savings based on the specific characteristics of their organization’s cost metrics, including:
    •Percentage of company time lost to failed searches
    •Total cost of time wasted
    •Total cost of knowledge deficits
    •Total cost of missed opportunities
