The Digital Factory presents: Cloud in Manufacturing

In cooperation with Google Cloud

Virtual Event | 4 March 2021 | 14:00–17:00 CET


About the event

Everyone is talking about Cloud – but what are the achievements and possibilities of Cloud technology in Manufacturing?

How do new digital solutions transform Manufacturing? How are others responding to Cloud computing to improve their supply chains? And what new solutions are being developed through cross-industry collaboration?

In this context, we are witnessing a paradigm shift through Cloud computing and seeing how its power, flexibility, security and scalability are driving digitalization globally.

But how to orchestrate this shift and who are the right partners for this journey?

This hybrid event from Deloitte and Google Cloud sets the stage to selected partners to share impactful Cloud transformation journeys in Manufacturing. It will add a beat to reimagining, transforming and amplifying the power to Google Cloud for Manufacturing. Thereby, Deloitte offers a jump-start to digital transformation.

Be inspired by those driving the future and realize what your possibilities are.

We hope to see you at the show!
