Collaborating to help customers
AVEVA’s co-development relationship with Microsoft extends back decades to the advent of Windows. Through the evolution of each new wave of technology, AVEVA has always preferred building on Microsoft technology. The company values Microsoft’s reputation for innovation and trustworthiness and consistently benefits from the partnership in working with its customers.
The company was an early adapter of Azure and has worked with Microsoft on strategy for locating global Azure data centers. “We’ve collaborated closely with Microsoft from when Azure was in its infancy,” says Custeau. “We have a co-innovation program and together invested in developing our software, which together with Azure technology is a key element of the operations and asset management platform that is AVEVA Insight today.” AVEVA Insight relies on Azure’s ever-expanding suite of AI and advanced analytics services to help its customers meet their business challenges.
Azure gives AVEVA’s customers the accessibility and flexibility to build, manage, and deploy applications on a massive, global cloud network using the customer’s preferred tools and frameworks. Continuous innovation from Microsoft helps AVEVA’s customers be future-ready by building on the latest advances in AI and analytics to keep them ahead of the curve.
Solutions for a sustainable future
AVEVA provides software for a sustainable future and to accelerate digital transformation to global customers across multiple key manufacturing industries.
A leading global provider of innovative clean energy for the transportation sector uses AVEVA Insight on Azure to visualize and analyze fuel cell performance across its portfolio. Using the power of AVEVA software in the Azure cloud, the company now has a closed-loop, user-friendly, IIoT solution with a storing data rate of 500ms data resolution providing storage fidelity across millions of tags.
The system monitors and analyzes data from both online and offline sources. As a result, the company’s team benefits from a scalable solution that delivers better visibility of fuel cell performance and transparent reporting on contractual obligations regarding fuel cell efficiency. “AVEVA Insight has enabled us to rapidly and securely implement a cloud-based approach to monitoring our fuel cell products in operation globally,” says an executive with the company. “The real-time data and insights we achieve, combined with the analytic capabilities, are supporting sound decision-making for us and our customers.”
“Together with AVEVA, we are accelerating the pace of industrial innovation and empowering organizations to gain business advantage through the power of analytics and AI,” says Simran Sachar, Director of Analytics, AI & Industry, Global Partner Solutions. “AVEVA’s technology and human-centric approach align strongly with our priorities. This partnership is helping organizations empower the connected worker with the right solutions to realize value, accelerate digital transformation, and build a sustainable future.”
Business outcomes that change the game
AVEVA anticipates further rapid advances in technology around how people consume data, with easy access from anywhere, including on mobile devices, enabling people to do their jobs better. And driving sustainability by saving on travel and empowering disparate teams to make accurate decisions that improve energy efficiency. Even with the powerful insights that AI and advanced analytics make possible, though, the technology produces the greatest value when applied to solving a specific business problem. That’s when organizations get tangible, game-changing outcomes.
AVEVA is increasing its investment with Microsoft to innovate and bring joint value to customers. The company is all about optimizing customers’ data and building applications that use Microsoft’s robust Azure AI and advanced analytics services. Given the strong partnership, AVEVA will continue to trust Microsoft for best-in-class technology to support its signature AVEVA Insight solution and cloud offerings across its technology portfolio.
