The move makes sense – particularly since the concept of connecting a brave new world of devices to the IoT stole the show at the International Consumer Electronics Show held earlier this month. Look for other organizations to rethink their organizational structure to optimize their play in this dynamic sector.

Information Communication Technologies Integtrated into Cloud Group

CES LogoToshiba Corporation has announced that it will consolidate all of its information and communication technology (ICT) solutions into its in-house Cloud & Solutions Company. The new organizational structure will take effect on April 1. In light of recent IoT trends, Toshiba will undergo a rapid shift in focus from being a business that merely provides products towards a business model that provides products that realize excellent user experiences.

Specifically, Toshiba will develop a common IoT platform that will serve as the infrastructure for offering advanced connectivity of systems and devices over the Internet. Toshiba says it will create a full menu of new IoT services and solutions that include all-encompassing monitoring, analysis and control.

Specifically, the Toshiba Group’s ICT specialists and engineers will be brought together in a unified organization – a move the company believes will boost the development of big-data analysis technology, real-time information processing technology and other related technologies.

The organizational shuffle combines diverse talent and experience from across Toshiba’s business segments: Energy & Infrastructure, Community Solutions, Healthcare Systems & Services, Electronic Devices & Components, and Lifestyle Products & Services.

It also will focus on the development of specifications and requirements for new equipment and systems and control technology, as well as plan for future needs.
