SAP Japan has been looking for ways to highlight and reward exemplary companies who have shown leadership in various forms of digital transformation. One key way is their annual award program which evaluates digital activities across eight different categories under the umbrella of its “SAP Japan Customer Award” program. The eight categories range from the digital effects on society to industry and manufacturing.
In the 2021 awards, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has been singled out for the category “Japan Industry 4.0”, by having demonstrated both successful digital transformation and its leadership in actively promoting and sharing best practices with others.
“We are very excited to receive this award. It is a great honor to be acknowledged by our peers to have been successful in the field of digital transformation,” said Yoshikazu Miyata, Senior Vice President of Mitsubishi Electric in charge of Factory Automation Systems. He added, “We understand that customers often require partners with expertise in different areas to work together with them to achieve digital transformation.
To support this, Mitsubishi Electric’s ‘e-F@ctory Alliance’ partnership program offers optimal solutions from more than 1050 partners to help address the challenges of smart manufacturing across various regions, areas, and fields. Such open communities can bring new innovations and approaches to benefit all. We look forward to continue working together with SAP to expand our joint-innovation activities and create new value for customers.”
The long-term strategic collaboration between the two companies has seen the development of solutions and insights for customers seeking to extend their capabilities in digital manufacturing to the supply chain. One of the most recent activities jointly conducted by Mitsubishi Electric and SAP Japan is the launch of the IT/OT showcase at the “Industry 4.Now HUB TOKYO”, which demonstrates how collaboration between people and robots can drive new opportunities in IT-OT vertical integration.
“An iconic example of our co-innovation activities is demonstrated at Industry 4.Now HUB TOKYO.,” explained Hirofumi Suzuki, President and Representative Director of SAP Japan. “SAP’s ERP and Mitsubishi Electric’s factory automation products integrated together will bring new innovations to the supply chain. We hope to expand our global reach, together from Japan, to provide the latest, cutting-edge technologies to help customers achieve Industry 4.0.”
