Microsoft has teamed up with digital transformation software provider C3 IoT, to create a new solution which helps enterprises to easily develop AI and IoT applications.
The joint solution will be created using the C3 IoT Platform, a comprehensive platform as a service (PaaS), and will be fully integrated with a set of Azure services, including Azure IoT Hub, Azure Machine Learning, big data and advanced analytics solutions.
The C3 IoT Platform is a low-code platform which allows rapid development of big data, predictive analysis, AI and machine learning, and IoT applications.
“With this partnership, two market leaders are joining forces to drive digital transformation at the world’s leading organizations,” said Thomas M. Siebel, C3 IoT CEO. “Combining the market reach of Microsoft, the amazing power of Microsoft Azure, and the capability of the C3 IoT AI platform, we will dramatically accelerate the adoption of AI, IoT, and elastic cloud computing globally.”
As a part of the partnership, Microsoft Azure will be the preferred cloud platform for C3 IoT. For rapid distribution of the new solution, the companies will conduct co-marketing and co-selling strategies.
The partnership between C3 IoT and Microsoft will help more enterprises to develop and deploy AI-based applications, which can help them in several transformative use cases, like dynamic inventory optimization, AI predictive maintenance, precision healthcare and CRM.
“AI is one of the most transformative technology paradigms of our time in its ability to empower companies, societies, and economies to achieve more,” said Judson Althoff, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Commercial Business, Microsoft. “C3 IoT’s proven technology and strong customer relationships make them an ideal partner in helping drive forward AI-based solutions built on the intelligent cloud.”
Last month, Microsoft had teamed up with BlackBerry to provide enterprises a new solution called BlackBerry Enterprise BRIDGE, to empower mobile users with secure, seamless productivity.
C3 IoT platform is now generally available on Microsoft Azure
