New alliance combines HP’s leading 3D printing platform with Deloitte’s unrivaled digital transformation capabilities.
HP Inc. and Deloitte Consulting LLP 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, applying their leading digital operations experience to help enterprises accelerate product design and production, create more flexible manufacturing and supply chains, and enhance efficiency across the manufacturing lifecycle. This can help increase innovation, accelerate time-to-market, reduce costs and waste, and help large enterprises compete more effectively in today’s dynamic global economy.
The alliance will combine HP’s award-winning Jet Fusion 3D Printing solutions and tools, industry-leading partner ecosystem, and heritage of driving digital industrial transformations together with Deloitte’s global client reach and deep manufacturing relationships, extensive digital operations experience, and proven success in supply chain transformation for some of the world’s largest companies.
“The Fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us. No sector of the global economy is undergoing more radical transformation than the US$12 trillion manufacturing market,” said Dion Weisler, president and CEO, HP Inc. “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 Punit Renjen, global CEO at Deloitte. “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.”
The speed, economics, quality, and reliability of HP’s 3D printing solutions are enhancing business operations with a growing list of leading global companies including BMW Group, Jabil, Johnson & Johnson, Nike, and many more, as well as a wide array of manufacturing service bureaus in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
“3D printing empowers design freedom and product personalisation while delivering a digital thread to transform supply chains and open the door for distributed manufacturing,” said John Dulchinos, vice president of digital manufacturing at Jabil.
“As part of this powerful ecosystem, Jabil works with leaders such as HP and Deloitte to help customers across different industries benefit from HP’s groundbreaking Multi Jet Fusion technology to make production-grade parts in volume and ramp additive manufacturing innovations.”
HP’s end-to-end manufacturing ecosystem includes engineering, software, enterprise, and manufacturing workflow leaders such as SAP, Siemens, Autodesk, and Materialise as well as members of its unique open 3D materials platform including Arkema, BASF, Evonik, Henkel, Lehman & Voss, and Sinopec Yanshan Petrochemical Co.
Deloitte’s Supply Chain and Manufacturing Operations practice is a global leader in helping companies apply digital business strategy to manufacturing initiatives to drive operational excellence. Deloitte has formed an ecosystem of digital collaborators, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cloudera, Dassault Systèmes, Google Cloud, SAP, and Siemens, to help clients accelerate their digital transformations. Deloitte will play an important role in helping organisations make use of 3D printing technology in their supply chain networks – a move that has the potential to fundamentally impact the way manufacturing organisations function.
This alliance, which will begin in the US and expand to other geographies, is part of HP and Deloitte’s ongoing collaboration designed to accelerate digital transformation for the enterprise. Deloitte and HP will offer solutions that combine Deloitte’s extensive business transformation capabilities with HP’s managed print, device-as-a-service (DaaS), commercial mobility, and cyber-security offerings.
