Organizations like yours are thriving with Azure IoT
Harry Eschel, Vice President of Products, Sagegreenlife
"We see IoT as a strategic, competitive advantage. We're improving the efficiency and cost structure of our business, which enables us to build more products at more competitive prices."
Stuart Bashford, Digital Officer, Bühler Group
"When it comes to IoT, there is huge potential to deliver value to the food and feed processing industry. "
Jason Bell, IT Director, Verosoft Design
"Using Microsoft's Azure IoT Hub technology, we're able to synchronize real-time data from customers' equipment from TAG to the Azure environment. Instead of having to do a periodic checkup and react when a problem occurs, IoT triggers the EAM-automated maintenance process when the system notices a problem."
Yoichi Matsui, Executive Director of the Sightseeing Bus Business Division Vehicle Service Department, Hato Bus
"Tirematics sends data and alerts directly to the manager. This allows us to respond to problems quickly without having to wait for the driver's report."
Doug Weber, Business Manager for Remote Application Monitoring, Rockwell Automation
"The ability to automate these transactions across thousands of machines and countless miles is transformational for this industry. Now all parties involved can have immediate electronic records of transactions, real accountability in these remote locations, immediate awareness for maintenance and diagnostics, and new levels of information about every transaction."
Staale Gjervik, President, XTO Energy
"Over the coming decade, we plan to drill thousands of new wells and build dozens of new facilities. It's challenging to keep up with that pace, but with Azure, we have the digital technology to help support our growth in a manageable and sustainable way."
