Volkswagen has announced that it has opened a new IT Development Centre in its Gläserne Manufaktur in Dresden.
In the Software Development Centre Production (SDC Production), up to 80 newly hired IT specialists will be working on the Volkswagen Industrial Cloud.
Volkswagen said that in the future, the Industrial Cloud will link all 122 Group-wide Volkswagen production facilities and that its goal is to amalgamate all data, and in doing so consistently digitalise Production and Logistics.
Volkswagen hopes that the opening of the SDC also signifies a further step forward for the Gläserne Manufaktur, towards becoming a high-tech site and a centre of Future Mobility.
Martin Hofmann, Head of IT for the Volkswagen Group, stated, ‘With the new IT Development Centre in the Gläserne Manufaktur, our expert knowledge will continue to grow; skills in important areas of technology secure our future.’
