Acquisition or Partnership

Hitachi ABB Power Grids and Hitachi Vantara announced the integration of Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ Digital Enterprise (DE) flagship solutions within the Lumada portfolio of advanced digital solutions and services for turning data into insights.

The two Hitachi business entities have agreed to rebrand the DE components as Lumada Asset Performance Digital Enterprise SolutionsManagement (APM), Lumada Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) and Lumada Field Service Management (FSM), adding to the growing portfolio of DataOps and Industrial IoT solutions.

The DE portfolio of solutions and its predecessors enable customers spanning multiple global industries to operate, analyze and optimize over $4 trillion of assets every day.  With the incorporation of the DE portfolio into Lumada, this experience is further complemented by a leading technology engine to deliver access to information, systems, people and analytics across asset-intensive organizations.

With Digital Enterprise’s incorporation into Lumada, Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ energy domain experience will be augmented by Hitachi’s Lumada Industrial IoT platform.

DE and Lumada also share core foundational features: a modern microservices design, vendor-agnostic interoperability, and a flexible deployment model, including cloud, on-premises and hybrid.

With the combination of Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ Digital Enterprise application portfolio and Hitachi’s Lumada solutions offered by Hitachi Vantara, customers will be able to benefit from additional data services including data integration, data cataloging, edge intelligence, data management, analytics and more.

The new integrated Lumada portfolio will offer advantages to customers in the following key areas:

  • Digital Transformation & Data Modernization – improving access to and insights from data
  • Connected Asset Performance – helping to predict and prevent asset failures
  • Intelligent Operations Management – improving oversight and maintenance of assets
  • Health, Safety & Environment – enabling safer environments for workers and the public
