These changes aim to transform the company’s business model and stay ahead in an increasingly competitive digital environment.

“Toshiba will channel resources into reinforcing SPINEX™, its IoT architecture, and promote businesses that provide customers with swift, efficient solutions through digitization and cutting-edge capabilities, in areas including artificial intelligence, digital simulation and security,” the company said.

“These advances will leverage Toshiba Group’s deep know-how in managing and optimizing customers’ systems, gained through long accumulated business expertise and world-class manufacturing technologies.”

Both the division and the CDO will promote innovation within the company’s business alliances in the aim of developing an ecosystem to encourage the expansion of new digital businesses.

Further, Toshiba has also revealed that its subsidiary Toshiba Digital Solutions Corporation (TDSL) will focus on the development of solutions that utilize both AI and IoT.
