Deloitte Consulting LLP has announced plans to collaborate with Amazon Web Services (AWS) on Internet of Things (IoT) analytics solutions focused on tracking an organization's most important assets. These solutions are hoped to help clients mitigate supply chain complexity, costs and potential risks by using AWS technologies to analyze large amounts of asset location data.

Additionally, the solutions will use public application programming interfaces to alert clients to other conditions that may impact assets as they move through the supply chain, such as weather, recall history and sales tax jurisdictions.

The Deloitte IoT practice will use Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), AWS Lambda, AWS IoT, AWS IoT Device Management, AWS IoT Analytics, AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), Amazon DynamoDB and Amazon Quicksight services. AWS will also provide a solution through which to analyze company data.

The new IoT solutions will be powered by Deloitte’s Turnkey IoT accelerator, established to help enable a lower-cost, lower-risk approach to developing an asset tracking and analytics solution.

“One of the biggest challenges in managing distributed assets is managing the data,” stated Adam Mussomeli, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “Deloitte and AWS will now be able to help clients mitigate supply chain complexity, cost, and potential risk by enabling data collection and analysis on a worldwide scale.”

Deloitte and AWS have worked together since 2016, when the entities formalized a strategic relationship focused on providing clients AWS’ cloud technology. Deloitte is a Premier Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network and is a launch APN Partner for AWS IoT Analytics.
