2018 Hitachi Transformation Award
Recognizing companies who use Hitachi solutions to accelerate their business transformation in innovative and successful ways
The Hitachi Transformation Award aims to inspire leaders in all industries to embrace the digital revolution by showcasing the most innovative examples of business transformation with Hitachi Group solutions. The award showcases customers who use digitalization as a strategic advantage to drive real business and societal value.
For 2018, we will award three customers with the Hitachi Transformation Award based on three category areas (one winner per category). Nominated customers may be eligible for more than one category, based upon their story of transformation:
Enterprise Transformation: Leaders in enterprise deployments have the challenge of supporting large-scale, mission-critical applications. Nominees in this category will be recognized for the most transformative Hitachi deployment across an enterprise that future proofs their business, develops and scales new capabilities to impact their company’s bottom line. Their business transformation extends beyond a single department, location or division of their organization.
Excellence in IoT: Nominees can illustrate how their organization is using data analytics to get more insights from their data and apply them for better operational efficiency, and/or how they are using IoT to drive measurable outcomes.
Social Innovation: Nominees can demonstrate how digitalization is enabling the organization’s customers, communities and/or employees to benefit business, society and the planet. Customers in this category will be recognized for using Hitachi solutions to make a positive impact on the world.
All nominations are confidential and will be judged by a panel of industry and Hitachi experts. The panel will recognize one winner for each category and the overall winner with the most votes during the judging period will be awarded the People’s Choice Award.
For each award entry, regardless of category, it is important to emphasize the transformative outcomes the organization has seen with the use of one or more Hitachi Group solutions. Here are four examples to address in each nomination:
1. Transforming Business – Create innovative business solutions for long-term value. Emphasize how the organization is approaching business differently, retooling operations, addressing new markets, creating new products and services, or transforming business models. Each nomination must describe the relevant conditions before and after adoption of Hitachi Group solutions.
2. Improving User Experiences – Illustrate how Hitachi’s solutions have impacted employees, customers and/or partners.
3. Innovating with Data – Thrive with digital transformation by taking advantage of data-driven insights. Describe fundamental changes to the organization’s approach to data, changes in how it thinks about data, changes in how IT serves its customers, and ways data is used to serve the business and its customers in entirely new ways.
4. Driving ROI – Demonstrate how the organization has seen an impact to ROI by leveraging data-driven insights. Define any measurable return on investment or other metrics achieved.
The award process is open to all customers of Hitachi Consulting, Hitachi Vantara, oXya and other Hitachi companies.
Entry forms can be completed by customers, partners, service providers, and Hitachi sales and marketing teams from Hitachi Consulting, Hitachi Vantara, oXya and other Hitachi companies.
Please fill out all required information on the award entry form and submit it through this site.
Deadline for award submissions is April 20, 2018 at 5 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
