Volkswagen has opened a new IT Development Center in its Gläserne Manufaktur in Dresden. In Software Development Center Production (SDC Production), up to 80 newly hired IT specialists will be working on the Volkswagen Industrial Cloud.
The Industrial Cloud is being established together with Amazon Web Services (AWS), a leader in the field of the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning and computer services.
In the future, the Industrial Cloud will link all 122 Group-wide Volkswagen production facilities. The goal is to amalgamate all data, and in doing so consistently digitalize Production and Logistics. It will bring together data from all factories and enable smart real-time control – simultaneously in different factories.
The opening of the SDC also signifies a further step forward for the Gläserne Manufaktur, towards becoming a high-tech site and a Center of Future Mobility.
