Azure for the energy industry

Build innovative cloud solutions to transform products, operations, and customer experience.

Why Azure for energy?

Azure is the globally trusted platform that helps you meet evolving threats with built-in security and the industry’s most comprehensive compliance portfolio. Use Azure tools and services to build custom solutions that help you tackle challenges and prepare for the future. Optimize everything from field work to customer experience. And modernize operations to speed response rates, boost efficiency, and reduce costs.

Oil and gas solutions

Use advanced capabilities like AI and machine learning to expand opportunities and reduce costs.

  • Visualize reservoir simulations to increase drilling hit rates using high-performance computing (HPC).
  • Improve decision making and reservoir production using IoT drilling sensors and advanced analytics.
  • Manage and extend asset lifecycles with predictive maintenance using Azure IoT Solution Accelerators.

Power and utilities solutions

Build a future of optimized energy management based on a foundation of highly secure devices and cloud innovation.

  • Upgrade your electrical grid using digital twins for distributed energy resources, device controls, and predictive forecasting.
  • Drive employee productivity and safety through automated operations powered by machine learning.
