THAILAND: In lieu of the current demands of “Thailand 4.0”, Hitachi has established a Southeast Asian Lumada Centre in the Amata City Chonburi Industrial Estate in Chonburi, Thailand.
The centre’s new IoT platform, also known as ‘Lumada’, would not only offer solutions for customers in Thailand but also support growth in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) by integrating successful solutions from Asian countries such as Japan and China as well as the United States of America. Similarly, in order to offer customised business solutions, Lumada would also be connecting and analysing customers’ data and engaging in co-creative opportunities with partners in the areas of digital technologies such as big data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and information and communication technology (ICT).
Further reinforcing Hitachi’s commitment towards supporting Thailand’s push for a digital economy, Toshiaki Higashihara, president & CEO of Hitachi, Ltd., has said: “Hitachi regards Thailand as an important market – the country represents the largest share of our business operations across the ASEAN market. We are proud to launch Lumada Center Southeast Asia, as part of our efforts to support Thailand’s vision to create a sustainable, value-based economy that is driven by innovation, technology and creativity”.
Looking into the future, Hitachi aims to utilise Lumada’s Operational Technology and Information Technology to achieve optimal results in manufacturing processes and seeks to implement business analysis and service ideation, to create viable business solutions in countries across ASEAN.
