Volkswagen is building its digital production platform

Following its cooperation with Microsoft on the automotive cloud, the Volkswagen Group has now announced its collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to jointly build the "Volkswagen Industrial Cloud". With the VW Industrial Cloud, all 122 factories will be networked and the data of all machines, plants and systems will be merged. The process is expected to take five years. However, the IT landscape at the production level is still quite different in some parts of the plants.
