Hitachi Solutions is a launch partner for Microsoft’s new Cloud for Retail, an industry-specific cloud designed to help retailers meet this new age of digital optimism. A strategic Microsoft partner since 2004, Hitachi Solutions was chosen because of our deep retail industry and Microsoft technology expertise, as well as our culture of collaboration, quality, and innovation that helps us turn our clients’ business strategies into digital realities.

- Build a real-time, sustainable supply change
- Empower store workers
Solutions tailored for retail growth
Today, more than ever, consumers are in the driver’s seat. With unlimited purchasing options and a demand for immediate service, customer expectations are changing rapidly, and retailers must learn how to respond. This calls for retailers to place the customer — what they buy, where they buy, and how they buy — at the forefront of retail planning. Effectively collecting and monitoring this data is the key to every retailer’s digital transformation, empowering teams with the right customer information to maximize the value of their data.
With the ever-present threat of disruption, retail supply chains are incredibly complex — and often fragile — networks that span multiple regions and channels. Despite this complexity and the challenges that come with it, retailers can still create highly resilient, connected supply chains by applying the right technology to drive visibility and data-driven predictions to support strategic decisions. A strong supply chain management foundation allows retailers to mitigate risk while optimizing fulfillment.
