AutoGrid Systems and Microsoft bring Azure to utility and energy providers

AutoGrid Systems, a big data analytics provider for the electricity and energy industry, has partnered with Microsoft to enable global utilities and energy service providers to develop and run big data and smart grid analytics solutions on Microsoft Azure.

According to VP of products Raj Pai, AutoGrid customers are interested in building on their investments in Microsoft platform technologies and this new partnership will allow them to use AutoGrid’s Energy Data Platform across cloud and on-premise deployments.

In particular, the collaboration will allow AutoGrid Systems customers, such as E.ON (pictured), to port and customise the company’s Energy Data Platform and suite of analytics applications using Azure and Microsoft developer tools.

Microsoft and AutoGrid Systems have also developed a comprehensive reference solution architecture that connects service providers and utilities, enabling customers to better monetise innovative demand response programs.

“The broad collaboration between AutoGrid and Microsoft is targeted at supporting utilities worldwide interested in building out compelling data-driven predictive analytics solutions,” said Jon Arnold, managing director for the Worldwide Power and Utilities Industry at Microsoft. “The solution enables the integrated utility of the future and is based on familiar and cost-effective Microsoft technologies, making it simple to deploy.”
