Deloitte and HPE Launch Manufacturer-Focused Gen AI Solution

HPE partners with Deloitte
Deloitte has collaborated with HPE’s NVIDIA Ai Computing portfolio to develop manufacturing-specific Gen AI solutions

Manufacturers must contend with supply chain and workforce disruptions, regulatory changes, new product demands and much more- all whilst technological advancement and digitisation is changing the market. 

In order to remain a competitive player in this dynamic industry, many companies are looking to invest in the metaverse and simulation data. 

This transformation requires innovation, modernisation and system integration- which is where Deloitte’s partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) comes in.

The collaboration creates a solution for manufacturers at every stage of digitisation. 

It enables companies to extract and manage industry data to simulate outcomes and predict disruption- de-risking new ventures and increasing efficiency across the whole process. 

Industry-focused Gen AI 

Deloitte, which provides advisory and consulting services to some of the world’s biggest brands including nearly 90% of the Fortune 500, announced the collaboration at HPE Discover. 

The partnership will see HPE, a global edge-to-cloud company which helps organisations unlock the value of their data through intelligent technological solutions, use its Private Cloud AI software to help Deloitte's clients accelerate time to value through the co-development of industry-focused Generative AI applications and use cases. 

It was announced as part of Deloitte's IndustryAdvantage commitment to co-investing and innovating with alliances to target industry and sector-specific problems. 

Tim Gaus, Deloitte Consulting’s principal and Smart Manufacturing business leader, describes what this means for manufacturers. 

"We're seeing that manufacturers are prioritising the improvement of their data extraction capabilities in order to run future-looking simulations that de-risk decision-making to contend with today's complex ecosystems.”

“Our collaboration with HPE and NVIDIA helps break down common barriers in developing AI-focused solutions, particularly in managing vast amounts of industrial data from a variety of sources, and brings critical information to the edge,” he continues. 

“In addition, as organisations continue the shift to software defined manufacturing, this collaboration can help manufacturers integrate siloed systems to improve decision-making, security, safety, outcome prediction and much more."

Manufacturing simulations via the NVIDIA Omniverse

The first industry-specific use of this collaboration is a digital twin application, built on the NVIDIA Omniverse platform and HPE GreenLake.

This will be delivered on the most recent portfolio of accelerated computing from NVIDIA AI Computing by HPE

It uses Deloitte’s rapid case development methodology to help manufacturers extract and manage the data needed to pioneer, engineer and deploy manufacturing simulations. 

Organisations can now simulate outcomes, predict issues and test the efficiency of new facility designs or products. 

Deloitte Consulting’s Jim Rowan, the AI market activation leader and principal, explains why these capabilities could be game changing for the manufacturing industry. 

"Amid a marketplace moving at breakneck speed, Generative AI can unlock game-changing insights and enormous business value — but its success requires an agile approach that targets business transformation through an industry-specific lens and is rooted in data modernization.”

"As leaders seek high-performing enterprise AI and data solutions that tackle their most critical business challenges, our collaboration with HPE and NVIDIA marks a natural next step in our commitment to bringing our clients actionable insights backed by the power of HPE technology and NVIDIA full-stack accelerated computing,” Jim says. 

Manufacturing simulations are just the start

After the initial manufacturing simulation use case, the partnership plans to produce further industry-specific uses which leverage HPE’s capabilities across Generative AI. 

"The expanded collaboration with Deloitte, NVIDIA and HPE to deliver industry-focused AI solutions will accelerate time to value with AI," says Marc Waters, HPE’s senior vice president for Customer Success, Services & Solutions.

"The co-developed AI solutions will simplify the AI lifecycle and enable enterprises to accelerate the development of AI use cases that will deliver clear business value,” he continues. 

The announcement is the latest in a longstanding relationship between Deloitte and NVIDIA, a partnership which was honoured earlier in the year when Deloitte was named the NVIDIA Partner Network Global Consulting Partner of the Year. 

Businesses can experience the benefits of this partnership at Deloitte's Wichita Smart Factory, a first-of-its-kind client experience centre which serves as a proving ground for organisations to experience the impact of Industry 4.0.
