The advancement of digital technologies such as IoT and AI are raising expectations for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).

CPS is anticipated to create new value, primarily in the industrial field, and to lead economic development and solutions for social problems.

In the newly published "Toshiba Next Plan," Toshiba has declared its intent to become one of the world's leading CPS technology companies. Toshiba is developing various new technologies and transforming business to realize the goal.

Toshiba has a unique competitive advantage in the physical world through long history of manufacturing business and social infrastructure development. To leverage the advantage through cyber technologies to realize CPS, Toshiba has formulated a common framework, or Toshiba IoT Reference Architecture. Toshiba has also started to provide a number of industrial IoT services compliant with the Reference Architecture in various business field under a unified corporate brand "TOSHIBA SPINEX," and is accelerating its development.

Technology is evolving at an unprecedented rate, and business environments are rapidly changing in the era of digital economy. The time has come to seriously reconsider how ICT is used. The SRE concept, which has attracted a great deal of attention in recent years, is being called on not only to provide system reliability, but also to contribute to business growth.

In April 2019, Toshiba Digital Solutions established its Managed Service Center. We have not stopped at mere ICT system maintenance. We also provide Albacore, Toshiba Managed Service that drives optimization and automation while making continuous improvements. Based on the operation experience Toshiba has accrued in a wide range of business fields, Albacore leverages the latest cloud, IoT, AI, OSS, and other technologies to contribute to ever-growing customer business. In order to create the Toshiba Group's Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Albacore provides services that integrate everything from the design and creation of IT platforms that fuse physical and virtual spaces at a high level to operation, including applications and business operation support.

Albacore will continue to support the growth and development of customers as it strives to realize full-fledged CPS. This special feature introduces some of these measures.

The values of Japanese society are changing due to the shrinking working-age population resulting from the country's low birth rate and the evolution of digital technologies. Japanese "work" itself is beginning to change.

We believe that companies must, in the face of these dramatically changing social environments and times, strive to create rich societies in which diverse people live and work happily and energetically. Two major goals in achieving this are transforming work styles and making life more comfortable.

This special feature looks at the new directions and latest technologies of Toshiba Digital Solutions in its efforts to create advanced interaction between people and AI, which holds the key to achieving these goals. Let's explore the frontlines of the social transformation being led by Toshiba communication AI RECAIUS.

Advances in digital technologies are causing disruptive innovation, producing innovative business models in a variety of industrial fields. Needless to say, digital transformation will hold the key for Japanese companies to emerge victorious in the face of increasingly fierce global competition.

The issue there is what to do about existing systems, which have become more and more complicated over time, turning into black boxes. Digital transformation involves using the data stored in existing systems, cutting maintenance costs, and ensuring agility and scalability.

Toshiba Digital Solutions offers a selection of advanced software production technologies that can be used to overcome these challenges, driving IT modernization that enables existing systems to adapt and respond to changes in the business and societal environment. We have systematized the technologies and methodologies used in digital transformation. This special feature presents an overview of the IT modernization we offer customers, together with one of the latest case examples.
