Customers are doing great things with Azure IoT products

Rolls-Royce and Microsoft collaborate to create new digital capabilities

"With the increase in the volume and velocity of data that we’re looking at, Microsoft Azure IoT Suite has a key part to play in our ability to reliably aggregate data across our customers’ fleets."

Richard Beesley: Senior Enterprise Architect Data Services

Sandvik Coromant combines human and digital intelligence into a predictive analytics solution

"With the solution we have developed with Microsoft, we use the Azure IoT Suite to bring real-time, high-frequency machine data into the cloud and analyze it using Machine Learning algorithms from Cortana Intelligence to optimize the process. The power of these cloud-based services enable us to set up predictive maintenance schedules and set alarms so that we can take a machine offline before it fails."

Nevzat Ertan, Chief Enterprise Architect and Senior Manager

Oil and gas experts use machine learning to deploy predictive analytics at the edge

"One clear business benefit is operator efficiency. By proactively identifying pump problems through edge analytics, companies reduce unplanned downtime, which decreases costs, increases production, and increases the agility of maintenance services."

Fahd Saghir: Industry Solutions Manager (Upstream O and G)
