Top 5 IT Trends for 2018 – An APAC Perspective

2017 has been a watershed year in terms of digital transformation. It isn’t a year for major technology breakthroughs, but a year in which we have begun to change the way we use technology. Cloud adoption has taken off and more applications are being developed for the cloud. Corporate leadership is more committed than ever to digital transformation projects and early indications are that we have stopped the decline in productivity and are on an upturn. What’s next and what are the trends to watch out for in 2018?

  • From Storage to AI: How as-a-Service is Accelerating Modern IT Jun 16 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Howard Holton, CTO Hitachi Vantara and Justin Ciaccio, Director of Sales - ViON
    As companies are becoming more reliant on advanced applications like AI, machine learning and advanced analytics, it’s becoming increasingly evident that traditional means of procuring IT cannot scale with the demands of these resource intensive applications. For this reason, many IT leaders are turning to as-a-Service for the financial flexibility and technical agility to implement IT solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. Join us for a discussion on how as-a-Service is accelerating modern IT and how to successfully navigate a multi-cloud environment.

  • Redefining Hadoop Data Strategy to Achieve More Insight with Less Cost (English) Recorded: May 21 2020 80 mins
    Seng Joo Lim, Digital Insights Solution Engineer; Derrence Chan, Technical Expert for Data Intelligence
    With the current pandemic situation, organizations are now being force to relook and prioritize their IT investment.

    In this webinar, we will explore the challenges our customers are facing with storing data long term in Hadoop, and discuss what Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) and Lumada Data Optimizer able to help our customers solve the exabyte data challenge in reducing cost of Hadoop Data Repository.

    For years Hadoop has been the go-to data processing platform because it is fast and scalable. While Hadoop has solved the data storage and processing problem for many years, it achieves this by scaling storage and compute capacity in parallel. As a result, Hadoop environments have continued to expand compute capacity well beyond their needs as more and more of the storage is consumed by older, inactive data. Although HDFS is effective at storing small-to-mid size repositories of data, HDFS becomes vastly more costly and inefficient as storage needs expand, since this requires increasing both storage and compute. HDFS also relies on data replication (storing multiple copies of each object) for protection. As these data sets grow into the petabytes the growing cost of old data and idle compute in your Hadoop ecosystem will become unsustainable.

    Key take away from this webinar:
    - Lower Hadoop Cost with Lumada Data Optimizer for Hadoop
    - Seamless Access to Hadoop Data with No Disruptions
    - Scale Compute and Storage Independently
    - Optimize Hadoop Resource Consumption and Utilization
    - Avoid Data Protection Headaches
    - A Secure, Flexible and Cost – Effective Storage Solution

  • Leveraging “Smart Spaces” Technology: Helping America Re-open Recorded: May 19 2020 34 mins
    Ron Quartararo Director Smart Spaces/Video Insights, Hitachi, SE Region Anthony Caputo Smart Spaces Solutions Architect

  • 2020 Outlook – Top IT Trends in Asia Pacific Recorded: Apr 14 2020 63 mins
    Hu Yoshida, CTO; Paul Lewis, Global VP of Industry and Enterprise Architecture; Pratyush Khare, VP Presales & CTO, APAC
    In the past few months, there has been a flurry of IT trend predictions. Just about everything has been covered ad nauseam. I have contributed my thoughts about these trends to publications for over 10 years. This year, I have decided to do something different and give you some IT projections that go beyond my usual coverage of short-term trends.

    I will team up with Paul Lewis, our Global VP of Industry and Enterprise Architecture, and Pratyush Khare, APAC VP presales & CTO, to project how IT might be 10 years out in Asia. 10 years is a lifetime in IT technology, but we feel that there is a high probability that these things will happen in this time frame. And there are things that we need to start doing today to get ready for the disruptions that these technologies will drive.

    The topics covered in this session include what compute, storage and AI might look like in 2030.
  • Can KYC Compliance and Customer Experience Coexist? Recorded: Apr 2 2020 61 mins
    Paul Lewis, Global VP and CTO - Hitachi Vantara and Howard Holton, CTO – Hitachi Vantara
    Practical Steps for the IT Executive.

    Remaining competitive in the modern financial world requires staying ahead of increasingly sophisticated financial crimes and fluid regulations across multiple jurisdictions. Simply monitoring sanctions lists is no longer an option. Financial institutions must be able to generate a complete picture of each entity they onboard.

    At the same time, standard AML systems generate a high proportion of false positives – estimated at 80% to 90% of alerts – creating bottlenecks, adding risk and annoying customers. In fact, one study showed that 12% of corporations had changed banks because of KYC issues.

    Addressing these challenges requires new strategies and innovative technologies that enable real-time risk profiling and continuous KYC. Financial institutions can leverage machine learning and data automation to improve compliance, reduce risk, streamline operations and keep their customers happy.

    In this webinar we will discuss:
    •How evolving regulations and increasingly sophisticated threats drive AML complexity.
    •Innovative technologies, from AI to blockchain to biometrics, that help financial institutions stay one step ahead of financial criminals.
    •What steps firms can take today to leverage the power of machine learning and maximize the value of their data.
    •How banks can de-risk their customer onboarding while maintaining best-in-class customer service.
