HP 3D President Nigro On The Deloitte Deal
HP 3D Printing Business President Stephen Nigro - the driving force behind what HP is calling a $12 trillion opportunity to transform global manufacturing with 3D printing - spoke with CRN about the company's blockbuster alliance with Deloitte.
Nigro said the "first of its kind" deal with a global systems integrator represents a turning point of sorts for propelling 3D manufacturing printing into Fortune 500 accounts.
"What this is going to do is allow HP and Deloitte go into large enterprises together and help them transform how they design products and supply chain," said Nigro. "This is the first deal of this kind in 3D printing."
Deloitte will not only provide high level consulting but will also resell the Jet Fusion 3D manufacturing products and materials. In addition, Deloitte and HP will combine to offer managed print, device as a service, commercial mobility and cyber-security offerings.
The alliance represents a major joint investment by HP and Deloitte- No. 15 on the 2017 CRN SP500- to get major corporations to transform how they "think and design" products, said Nigro.
