The manufacturing industry was among the first to adopt the public cloud, according to a research. From the start, manufacturing firms recognized the cloud’s value in providing scalable, cost-effective compute and storage resources for automated processes.

Today, manufacturers are increasingly turning to public and hybrid clouds to accelerate their digital transformation. The cloud enables them to access the technologies and tools they need, such as collaboration, analytics, and process automation. It also supports the achievement of goals such as increased productivity, consistent security and compliance.

Microsoft Cloud for Manufacturing

Microsoft Cloud for Manufacturing in combination with Dynamics 365 is designed to deliver capabilities  that support the core processes and requirements of the industry.
