In a sea of selfie-centric devices from various other brands, the Vivo Y69 is every techy’s sweet surrender to the selfie trend. Much like its predecessors, the Vivo Y69 is equipped with a 16 megapixel Perfect Selfie front camera allowing for softlight-enabling moonlight glow for flawless photos. The one-of-its-kind front camera is paired perfectly with a 13 megapixel rear camera with ‘Live Photo’ feature and has a f/2.0 aperture. A special feature called ‘Group Selfie’ allows panorama panning effect so ‘barkada shots’ may be taken with no one left out of the frame.

The Vivo Y69 enables you to live life on the double with the Smart Slip 3.0 feature. Enjoy entertainment and chatting with just a quick three-finger swipe and you have two apps running at the same time. This service currently supports Facebook, YouTube, WhatsApp, Line, BBM, WeChat, Viber, built-in Messages and Videos, Play Movies & TV, MX Player, and VCL for Android. Moreover, the Y69 model’s App Clone allows you to split your professional interactions from your personal ones with the App Clone. You get to appreciate the freedom of multiple accounts, as App Clone offers multiple instances of the same app. Understanding the value of privacy, the Vivo Y69 boasts of a 2.0 second fingerprint scanner conveniently integrated with the main home button. The Y69 runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat.

Light-weight at only 162.8g, this newest offering from one of the top 5 global smartphone brands is albeit heavy with features at par with its pricier counterparts. The Vivo Y69’s processor is a MediaTek MT6570 SoC, with a speed of 1.5Ghz, also boasting of a 3GB RAM. This device has a triple card slot which supports a bigger internal storage of 32GB further expandable up to 256GB. It also rocks a 5.5-inch HD 1280x720 pixels display furnished with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top.

With the age 21st century smartphones swiftly evolving to re-shape and catch up with the era of dynamic, fast-moving work and personal lifestyle, Vivo does not disappoint. The Vivo Y69 levels up the selfie game but with equally powerful features that makes this easy-on-the pocket phone beyond the price.

Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE:6501), announces the finalists for the Hitachi Transformation Award to be awarded at NEXT 2017, the premier event for the digital revolution. NEXT 2017 will be held September 18-21, 2017 in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. This first annual award recognizes leading companies that are transforming their businesses in new and innovative ways, with the support of Hitachi group solutions. Five finalists and four honorable mentions have been selected based on the substantial benefits they have achieved through accelerating business transformation, improving user experience, innovating with data, and enabling the internet of things (IoT). 

The following finalists are exemplary models of how digital transformation accelerates business outcomes:

Award Finalists
  • CPFL Energia: With over nine million electricity consumers connected to nine distribution companies, CPFL decided to convert to a Hitachi smart grid universe. With automation spread across their networks, they needed to speed up their mission-critical database to keep up with the enormity of their technical and business challenges. Hitachi helped them assure high quality services and safety for their customers.

  • Curtin University: Curtin is making campus operations smarter and bringing innovation to Western Australia with data-driven research. By analyzing people’s movements in and out of classrooms and linking data sets, they will optimize building usage, capacity needs and schedules. Through co-creating solutions with Hitachi, Curtin can use data to lower costs, improve student retention and create a more effective, contemporary learning experience.

  • Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA): How do you optimize livestock production? With data. Through MLA investment, Hitachi’s sensor-driven data collection and analytics helps the red meat industry identify best practices for animal tracing, supply chain efficiency, and on-farm operations. By automating data analytics and driving IoT- led decision making, MLA is helping foster the productivity and profitability of the Australian red meat and livestock industry.

  • Spin Master: Transforming into the fourth-largest toy manufacturer and children’s entertainment powerhouse is not child’s play. Spin Master has adapted to strategically support innovation, acquisitions, new brands, and continued business expansion. With Hitachi’s assistance, they reduced SAP processing time, created significant savings, and gained a 360-degree view of their customers. Now they’re pushing the boundaries of innovation, creativity and fun further and faster.

  • Wiggle: Wiggle, the leading e-commerce sports retailer, knew their inefficient processes and a range of custom systems could not support their ambitious growth plans. Working with Hitachi, they developed a cloud-based, sophisticated retail platform to standardize operations and support their global strategy. Staying customer-centric, with a single customer view, better process efficiencies and soaring customer satisfaction, they leave others trailing behind.

The award winner will be announced on September 20th at NEXT 2017. The five finalists’ stories will be featured throughout the event, showcasing the business outcomes they have achieved from their transformation journeys.  Hitachi is proud to partner with these outstanding companies and honor their accomplishments.
