Deloitte, Hewlett Packard Enterprise launch new IoT offering
The two firms announces IoT portfolio for manufacturing, retailers, workplace and sport venues
Deloitte and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) have announced a new Internet of Things (IoT) offering for corporate customers.
The joint IoT offering includes a turnkey IoT solution for manufacturing; smart retail solution to boost in-store conversion rates and improve consumers’ shopping experiences; smart workplace solution to digitally connect co-workers globally; and smart venue solution for stadiums to enhance the fan experience.
Under the collaboration agreement, Deloitte will provide the consulting services relating to these offerings, including IoT and cybersecurity.
In order to help industrial customers monitor their machine assets, this turnkey solution — using technology and services from HPE, National Instruments, PTC and Deloitte — computes and analyzes conditions and performance data right on the factory floor. The solution can then produce predictive maintenance analytics and help identify machine failures. Businesses can improve productivity, reduce unplanned downtime and lower costs as a result, Deloite and HPE said.
Deloitte and HPE are also offering an IoT solution to improve the customer experience and increase in-store conversation rates for retail locations. Using targeted intelligence including wayfinding, real-time offers, automated checkouts and digital signage, stores can become smarter about their customers and monetize their data, the companies said.
The smart workplace solution enables organizations to create their own digitally-connected offices, linking employees to both their work and their colleagues.
Smart Venue solution uses technology which serves targeted advertisements to attendees based on user profiles. Deloitte and HPE said that this solution is designed to enhance the overall experience and increase revenue for venue owners and stakeholders.
“Deloitte’s depth in technology consulting, combined with HPE’s intelligent edge infrastructure, have the potential to revolutionize the IoT space — helping our clients to increase revenues and lower the risk of lost productivity,” said Todd Paris, managing director, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and technology and digital experience practice lead, Deloitte Digital.
“By working with Deloitte, and utilizing our Edgeline Converged Edge Systems, we can simplify the process of analysis, storage and connectivity, generating insights in real time. Customers can get the data they need, when they need it, to take action faster than ever before,” said Olivier Suinat, senior vice president, global sales, at HPE.
