Build, deploy and run intelligent apps anywhere
Consistently run diverse workloads and extend Azure capabilities almost anywhere – including data centre, edge and remote office locations.
Bring the cloud to your factory floor
Streamline your operations and increase your efficiency by running Azure services at the edge from the factory floor, in the cloud or in on-premises environments – without needing to connect to the Internet.
Get immediate intelligence
Help ensure quality control and prevent product damage by monitoring for defects in real time directly on the production line with the intelligence, security, scale and performance of Azure.
Reduce manufacturing app costs
Lower the costs of intelligent manufacturing app development and moving massive industrial data volumes to the cloud. Also, alleviate network traffic by processing data straight on the factory floor.
Accelerate in-store and online retail innovation
Reimagine retail by maximising on-shelf availability and reducing shrinkage by extending Azure capabilities to the environment of your choice.
Create unforgettable experiences
Increase customer satisfaction by using intelligent data to run your business more efficiently. Get deeper insights into footfall, dwell time and promotional placements at your physical shops.
Maximise on-shelf availability
Alert shop managers to rapidly dwindling items before they run out of stock by monitoring inventory with cameras and other in-store equipment.
Decrease inventory losses and other shrinkage with intelligence and insights into theft, ticket switching, return frauds and voids.
Enhance patient outcomes and healthcare experiences
Accelerate healthcare innovation, overcome latency and processing speed challenges, and improve protection of on-premises health information.
Improve analytics and records management
Reduce latency and processing speeds and locally aggregate, process and store records. And, bring real-time AI and analytics capabilities to specialties such as pathology, imaging, research and genomics.
Modernise legacy systems
Connect medical devices and apps to healthcare IT networks. Aggregate essential data within each device and help safeguard patients from equipment malfunctions by minimising data delays.
Update clinical environments
Improve emergency department wait times, operating room performance, bed utilisation and patient-flow bottlenecks by transitioning legacy infrastructures and IT environments to the cloud.
