Group IoT / ICT Strategy 2019
We set, on the main concept of “Group IoT/ICT Strategy 2019”, to aim at “the creation of Customer Value and solution of social problems that only IHI can realize with the digital technology”. Specifically, to realize the concept, we will promote digital transformation (hereinafter, DX) in business areas and prepare platforms for supporting DX. Along with the maximum use of IoT/ICT, we will attempt to use the data accumulated through longtime business of IHI group and the data to be acquired from now on with AI/data analysis. Through these measures, we will tackle “problems of customers and society” such as manpower reduction, maximization of efficiency and optimization of operations from the point of view of the lifecycle.
We have declared “four changes”: “the change of business models”, “the change of manufacturing”, “the change of business operations”, and “the change of links”. And together with customers, we will attempt to do what only IHI can such as suggestion of new value, advanced manufacturing, and optimization of business processes. To realize the attempt, adding to various platforms, people capable to promote DX in addition to having a thorough knowledge of both customers’ sites and our products and service are required, therefore we have tried to train IoT/ICT-talented people. By further promoting these attempts, we will make an effort to create Customer Value and to resolve social problems through “people” and “the digital technology”.
