Part of the For Cloud Professionals podcast series

IoT has revolutionized the capabilities of countless consumer products. Now, Deloitte has introduced Smart Factory Fabric powered by AWS, a suite of services designed to revolutionize IoT and help manufacturers reimagine their business.

Reimagine manufacturing with Deloitte's Smart Factory Fabric

Digital has transformed manufacturing over the past decade. The cloud and IoT have helped companies make gains in efficiency and productivity that are nothing short of revolutionary. And the revolution isn't over. In this episode of the podcast, Deloitte's David Linthicum and guests, Deloitte's Subrata Roy and AWS's Michael Garcia, discuss announcements from AWS re:Invent 2019 and Smart Factory Fabric, a new suite of services from Deloitte that enables companies to use IoT and the cloud to reimagine the way they do business. They cover how Smart Factory Fabric works, the expected impact that it will have on manufacturing, and how companies can use Smart Factory Fabric to realize more of what's possible with cloud.

There are several point solutions that are available in the market, but they really do not share the data and the insights that come from each one of them…this product is unique because it brings together people, machines, and materials into one place where you can actually have a full view of your plant and how it is performing.
