In a constantly evolving world, being future-focused is not just a strategy; it’s a necessity. Drawing inspiration from Hitachi’s rich origin story, mission, and vision, we strive to be at the forefront of social innovation and contribute to realizing Society 5.0 in the United States. As a data-driven and mission-centric organization, we are committed to combining our global ambition with digital prowess to empower the federal government and inspire the world.

Hitachi’s roots trace back to 1910 when Namihei Odaira founded the company as a humble mining motor producer and repair shop in Shibauchi, Japan. Hitachi has grown into a global industry titan with diverse businesses, including digital solutions, energy, infrastructure, healthcare, and more. Our origin story serves as a testament to the power of relentless innovation and its impact on society.

Hitachi’s mission is clear: “Contribute to society through the development of superior, original technology and products.” With a firm belief in our talented team and proven experience in global markets, Hitachi envisions delivering innovations that address society’s challenges, thereby inspiring the world. This forward-looking vision motivates us to seek solutions that meet the needs of the present and shape a better future for generations to come.

To fulfill its mission and vision, Hitachi has set its sights on three critical pillars: Digital, Green, and Innovation. In the digital era, technology has the potential to revolutionize industries, societies, and governance. By harnessing the power of data, AI, and digital technologies, we strive to create cutting-edge solutions that drive transformational change.

Data-driven solutions have the power to revolutionize the way we address global challenges. At Hitachi Vantara Federal, we firmly believe that applying digital technologies and data analytics can lead to the creating safer, smarter, and healthier societies. By harnessing the potential of data, we seek to empower the federal government with insights, efficiency, and innovation that can transform public services and improve the lives of citizens.

Moreover, sustainability lies at the heart of our green ambition. Hitachi is committed to achieving carbon neutrality in our operations by 2030 and extending this commitment across our entire value chain by 2050. As a responsible corporate citizen, we are dedicated to creating a greener and more sustainable world for future generations.

At Hitachi Vantara Federal, we embrace and pursue the concept of social innovation and Society 5.0. Society 5.0represents a human-centered society that leverages digital technologies and data to solve pressing global challenges. By combining our mission-centric paradigm with a data-driven approach, we seek to power this vision through the digital ambitions of the United States federal government.

In pursuit of our goals, collaboration is the cornerstone of our approach.

We believe in leveraging the best minds globally to drive innovation and deliver exceptional solutions. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are also integral to that approach. By fostering a diverse workforce, we embrace varied perspectives, enabling us to tackle challenges creatively and comprehensively.

Being future-focused is not a mere aspiration; it is a driving force behind everything we do at Hitachi Vantara Federal. Drawing inspiration from Hitachi’s legacy of innovation, our mission-centric approach, and our commitment to social innovation and Society 5.0, we strive to lead the way toward a brighter future. With a steadfast belief in the power of collaboration, diversity, and data-driven solutions, we are confident in our ability to power positive change within the federal government and inspire the world.
