Global – In a joint effort to accelerate enterprise innovation and productivity through Gen AI, global technology leader Hitachi has recently established a multi-year partnership with Google Cloud. This collaboration will enable Hitachi to develop a new business unit aimed at helping businesses solve industry challenges with Gemini models, Vertex AI, and other cloud technologies. 

It will also integrate Google Cloud’s AI to strengthen its own products and services. Hitachi will further expedite the development of its core digital business, Lumada, while also optimising operational efficiencies across the Hitachi Group.

Spearheaded by Hitachi’s GlobalLogic, the two will establish the Hitachi Google Cloud Business Unit and the Google Cloud Centre of Excellence to accelerate the adoption of Google Cloud technology among both new and existing enterprise clients.

Moreover, the said collaboration incorporates training on Google Cloud’s GenAI as part of Hitachi’s GenAI Professional training program. The said programme will harness the expertise and managed services available through these business units, ensuring large-scale organisations have access to the resources needed to fundamentally improve how they operate with AI.

Other key aspects of the partnership also include the introduction of new GenAI solutions for software modernization and customer service, the provision of safe, secure GenAI solutions for on-premises and cloud environments, joint market initiatives, and lastly, the reinforcement of GenAI talent development. 

Toshiaki Tokunaga, executive vice president and executive officer at Hitachi, said, “Through this partnership, Hitachi will leverage Google Cloud’s AI capabilities to improve and enhance employee productivity and accelerate innovation.”

“By augmenting the capabilities of our developers and customer success units with Google Cloud GenAI solutions, such as Vertex AI and Gemini models, Hitachi will be able to better serve the needs of its customers in diverse industries and across complex domains such as energy, mobility, manufacturing, and digital services,” explained Toshiaki. 

Nitesh Banga, CEO, digital engineering business unit, Hitachi, and president and CEO at GlobalLogic, further shared, “Through this global alliance, Hitachi is strategically aligning its go-to-market approach together with Google Cloud to drive tangible results. We are establishing clear pathways for collaboration, ensuring enhanced efficiency and acceleration in delivering solutions to our collective clients.”

“This investment in building our Google Cloud Business Unit will provide the necessary energy, focus, and cohesive teamwork essential for achieving the desired accelerated time-to-market, translating innovation into swift revenue growth,” Nitesh added.

Also speaking about the initiative, Thomas Kurian, CEO at Google Cloud, said, “To solve complex business challenges with generative AI, enterprises need advanced technology and the technical expertise to successfully deploy it throughout their organisations. Our partnership with Hitachi will provide customers with the resources needed to optimally build, implement, and manage every stage of their generative AI projects.”
