"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."
Though the impact of this partnership will first be felt in US, the strategy will see the collaboration extent to other geographies. Both companies will continue work together to devise novel services built upon Deloitte's business transformation capabilities and HP's commercial mobility, device-as-a-service (DaaS), managed print and cyber-security offerings.
Punit Renjen, Global CEO at Deloitte, commented: "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.
