Cloud Desktops for Manufacturing



Rapid innovation in manufacturing technology is changing the game in the industry. Gone are the days of sweat and steel in the factory. Automation, AI, the IoT and human-machine interaction are now the backbone of modern manufacturing operations. In order to stay ahead in today’s hypercompetitive world, companies must work faster and smarter throughout the entire product lifecycle – from design to distribution. Enabling end users in oftentimes highly dispersed ecosystems is a huge challenge. With Google Cloud-based VDI deployed and managed by itopia CAS, companies can get powerful new technologies in the hands of their workers more reliably, efficiently, securely and at the lowest price possible.


Enabling the Manufacturing Industry with
