Vimana Partners with Microsoft on Industrial Internet of Things
The partnership is expected to bring Azure users easy access to shopfloor monitoring and data gathering capabilities.
Vimana and Microsoft are working together to leverage their respective strengths (Vimana’s analytics and Microsoft’s cloud IoT capabilities) for customers using Microsoft Azure and looking for “smart manufacturing” solutions.
Microsoft’s Azure provides a software platform used by manufacturers across the globe who need scalable, reliable, enterprise-ready and secure IIoT solutions. Meanwhile, Vimana Vision, a manufacturing analytics platform, combines device connectivity and data transformation capabilities to provide predictive and prescriptive insights from shopfloor data, along with the ability to integrate data and insights into customer’s own applications.
“We are excited to be working with Microsoft, combining technologies that yield a strategic, well-differentiated IIoT solution,” says Rick Moran, president and CEO of Vimana. “This means that customers using Azure can easily implement manufacturing analytics into their environment with speed and fewer resources. The future of manufacturing is dependent on leveraging strategic partners and is ecosystem-driven.”“Collaborating with Vimana will enable Microsoft to provide our customers leading-edge manufacturing analytics for real-time visibility and insights into production performance to gain operational excellence. Customers are looking for robust data analytics to leverage their existing Azure platform,” says Diego Tamburini, Microsoft’s principal industry lead for manufacturing with Azure Industry Experiences.
