Brief project summary

Hitachi Consulting will build an innovative Big Data Platform for Denmark’s capital, Copenhagen, to improve the quality of life in the Copenhagen area, to stimulate business activity, and to help achieve its ambitious goal to be carbon neutral by 2525.

Short activity description

The purpose of Hitachi’s Big Data Platform is to collect and ingest the data and make it easily available for consumption by public and private entities that are working on sustainable solutions. This platform streamlines the analytics process by eliminating the need to rebuild the big data plumbing for each analysis, and eliminates big data silos, which make it difficult to share information with other entities.

Over time, it can be used to integrate data from multiple sources, such as demographics, crime statistics, energy consumption meters, air quality sensors and traffic sensors, etc.
