HP Inc. and Deloitte have announced an alliance to help accelerate the digital transformation of the global manufacturing industry.
The two companies will collaborate on the implementation of HP’s 3D printing systems in large-scale manufacturing environments, to “help enterprises create more flexible manufacturing and supply chains, and enhance efficiency across the manufacturing lifecycle.”
The alliance will combine HP’s Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions and tools, managed print, device-as-a-service (DaaS), commercial mobility, and cybersecurity offerings with Deloitte’s client reach and manufacturing relationships. It will begin in the U.S. and expand to other geographies, and is part of HP and Deloitte’s ongoing collaboration designed to accelerate digital transformation for the enterprise.
“The Fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us,” said Dion Weisler, president and CEO, HP Inc. “No sector of the global economy is undergoing more radical transformation than the $12 trillion manufacturing market. Companies investing in digital reinvention are poised to outpace their peers. Building on our disruptive 3D printing technology, together with Deloitte, we are focused on helping customers transform and win in this new era.”
“The digitalisation of global manufacturing operations and practices will impact companies and consumers around the world, and 3D printing will play an important role in fundamentally changing manufacturing as we know it,” said Deloitte CEO Punit Renjen. “This alliance comprises two exceptional brands and brings together HP’s leading 3D printing platform with Deloitte’s digital manufacturing experience and global client reach.”
