Microsoft has revealed a variety of new artificial intelligence and data solutions that will help manufacturers to optimise operations and enhance productivity ahead of Hannover Messe 2024, which is taking place on 22-26 April in Hanover, Germany.

Firstly, it has launched the private preview of manufacturing data solutions in Microsoft Fabric and copilot template for factory operations on Azure AI. Both solutions will allow manufacturers to unify their operational technology and IT data estate to accelerate data transformation for AI in Fabric. The copilot templates will allow users to create their own natural-language AI-assistants that will help frontline workers to utilise the unified data.

To help organisations gather data efficiently, Microsoft has also launched the adaptive cloud approach, including Azure IoT Operations. This framework will help users to modernise edge infrastructure across operations.

Finally, Microsoft has revealed new capabilities for Copilot in Dynamics 365 Field Service that will help service managers and technicians find information, resolve issues and keep customers updated simultaneously. In addition, users will be able to use the features with the Field Service app in Microsoft Teams to access remote assist capabilities and communicate with remote experts.

“Ahead of Hannover Messe, one of the world’s largest manufacturing innovation events, Microsoft is announcing new AI and data solutions for manufacturers to help unlock innovation, enable intelligent factories, optimise operations and enhance employee productivity,” said Kathleen Mitford, corporate vice president of global industry at Microsoft in an online blog post. “The manufacturing industry has been incredibly resilient over the last decade and the infusion of new AI solutions signifies a critical transformation in this vital industry.”
