Hitachi IoT Appliance Accelerates the Time to Insight and Value of IoT Solution Deployments for Industrial and Commercial Enterprise Customers

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE:6501), today unveiled a new appliance for internet of things (IoT) deployments: Hitachi IoT Appliancepowered by Lumada, Hitachi's IoT platform. Delivered as a turnkey system, the appliance's "hyperconverged meets microservices" architecture combines Hitachi's best-in-class storage and compute with industry-leading networking technologies and comes fully integrated with Hitachi's latest Lumada software. Hitachi IoT Appliance has been fully pre-architected and pre-validated to provide a plug-and-play solution that can be easily deployed and production-ready in under an hour. This gives users the ability to more rapidly connect, monitor and extract actionable insights from their business and industrial assets.

For enterprises looking to implement IoT initiatives as part of their digital business strategies, a secure IoT solution is necessary to connect physical assets, ingest and blend data from disparate sources at high speeds, and turn it into actionable insights without disruption to normal business processes. Despite a proliferation of IoT platforms and solutions in the market today, security concerns, complex IT deployment cycles, risk of downtime, infrastructure requirements and a lack of internal resources to support them have stalled many IoT initiatives-and in some cases, deterred organizations from embracing them altogether.

According to Gartner, Inc.: "Increasingly, enterprises are being asked either to implement or to participate in IoT solutions. Business units and outside partners are demanding IoT enablement of services and products. Unlike the adoption of other "new technologies," IoT modifies and enhances existing services and products, which are already essential. IoT's triple challenge is to implement quickly, avoid disruption of existing operations and ensure high levels of service quality."1

Hitachi IoT Appliance is purpose-built to address these issues. From factory floors and solar farms, to water treatment plants and enterprise datacenters, analysis of connected data is helping organizations to optimize their operations. The expected result is greater performance and output, efficiency, efficacy and extended life of industrial equipment and capital assets. It simplifies IoT deployments in any number of industrial settings and can be placed at a location of a customer's choosing-from edge to core-where data privacy, compliance, network limitations and other challenges can be more easily addressed. This can significantly reduce the associated risk, complexity and uncertainty of IoT deployments in enterprise and industrial environments, with faster time to insight, value and better business outcomes. Outcomes like streamlined operational efficiencies, improved asset utilization and product quality, better customer experiences and creating new revenue streams.  

Designed to make it simple and intuitive for customers to put Lumada, Hitachi's intelligent, composable and flexible IoT platform, to work, Hitachi IoT Appliance can help users to get their IoT solution deployments up and running - fast. Users can more rapidly realize the benefits of Lumada's advanced data blending and orchestration, artificial intelligence, machine learning and analytics capabilities, which help to rapidly gather and manage data for analysis and extract rich insights that support better business decision-making.

"Hitachi IoT Appliance combines the best of Hitachi's trusted IT infrastructure and data management solutions integrated with our intelligent, flexible and composable Lumada software and enhanced security features to provide enterprise organizations with the ability to rapidly implement IoT deployments at scale," said Gaurav Bora, vice president, industrial IoT product management at Hitachi Vantara. "Our customers can now more quickly extract value and insight from their physical and digital assets, to support better decision-making and digital innovations that ultimately can help them to transform their businesses."

Ondot’s Mobile Card Controls Provide Protection to Thousands of Banks from ATM Heist Threat17.8.2018 22:47Pressemelding

-Card controls counter threat of FBI’s warning on unlimited ATM cash out crime - Santa Clara, Calif., Aug. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- US mainstream media is reporting on a FBI warning to banks of an impending cybercrime wave targeting ATMs in which thieves seek to steal millions of dollars by using cloned cards for fraudulent withdrawals. Ondot, the global leader in mobile payments services, provides consumers a simple protection with mobile-based card controls that can restrict ATM transactions without completely shutting off the card for legitimate needs. Ondot’s mobile controls can give consumers the ability to restrict transactions specifically for ATMs while leaving their cards active for in-person purchases, eCommerce, and other purchases. By locking the account’s use at an ATM, consumers can work with their financial institution to ensure other security best practices are in place while knowing that even a spoofed card will be unable to withdraw cash.

SEMAFO: Armed Incident in Bobo Area17.8.2018 15:48Pressemelding

MONTREAL, Aug. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SEMAFO Inc. (TSX:SMF) (OMX:SMF) regrets to report that a bus transporting employees from the town of Bobo-Dioulasso to the Mana Mine in Burkina Faso was shot at by armed bandits this morning. In the exchange of fire between the policemen and bandits, one SEMAFO national employee and one sub-contractor employee lost their lives. Operations at the Mana Mine, located 80 kilometers from the incident, are not affected. Early analysis suggests that this incident and the armed incident that occurred in the Est region six days ago are unrelated. However, the Corporation will be increasing its security measures at Mana and take appropriate steps to ensure the safety of the mine and of its employees. The Corporation would like to express its sincere sympathy to families of the victims. About SEMAFO SEMAFO is a Canadian-based mining company with gold production and exploration activities in West Africa. The Corporation operates the Mana Mine in Burkina

ThalesNano Energy Introduces H-Genie™: Revolutionary Compact, High Pressure Hydrogen Gas Generation Platform for Chemists17.8.2018 11:00Pressemelding

Improves safety, expands chemistry, saves lives. BUDAPEST, Hungary and BOSTON, Aug. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ThalesNano Energy LLC today announced, at the 256th ACS conference (booth: 1615), the launch of the first in the series of revolutionary new gas generators, the H-Genie™. The H-Genie™ is a compact high pressure hydrogen generator designed to be used in any laboratory as a safer and simpler alternative to hydrogen cylinders. Capable of generating hydrogen at up to 1 NL/min and 100 bar (1450 psi), the system can help expand chemists’ limited hydrogenation chemistry capability by providing high purity hydrogen gas, on demand from water, to batch and flow reactors. Neal Langerman, Principal Scientist at Advanced Chemical Safety, comments: “The presence of cylinders of hydrogen raises the risk level of a lab. While the explosion or fire hazard can be mitigated with a gas cylinder cabinet, this takes precious floor space and does not eliminate the 1300 liters of flammable gas from
