INDUSTRIALS & MANUFACTURING openly and securely with third parties supports the development of new sustainability innovations and heightened business resilience. For example, as global regulation and compliance demands increase, there remains a colossal opportunity for developers to assist industrial operators in reporting on environmental, social and governance targets. By viewing unified value chain data in context, developers can help surface and make accessible the interdependent areas where sustainability action can have the greatest impact, such as reduced emissions and better regulatory compliance. How does AVEVA Data Hub support the Ecosystem of the Future? By leveraging software-as-a-service (SaaS) capabilities through our AVEVA Connect industrial cloud platform, AVEVA Data Hub removes the barriers to data sharing using the scale and flexibility of the cloud. AVEVA Data Hub provides secure access to real-time data to users in remote locations or outside the organisation’s network. As a fully managed cloud-native SaaS, AVEVA Data Hub is ready to use from day one and can be expanded on demand without additional infrastructure or IT staff. With AVEVA Data Hub, businesses can more easily explore AI and predictive analytics, monitor remote assets, increase sustainability, and connect to the Ecosystem of the Future. AVEVA and Microsoft have expanded their strategic collaboration to further strengthen both companies’ data integration platforms. How will the partnership benefit businesses? The agreement will help to better prepare customers to incorporate AI in key industries across the world and see greater synergy between industrial cloud platform AVEVA Connect and data analytics solution Microsoft Fabric. They are designed to streamline the process of collecting, transforming, and unifying data from various sources. They help gather data from different parts of an organisation’s operations, including manufacturing processes, supply chains and other relevant systems. These platforms offer tools for data cleansing, transformation and enrichment, making the data more consistent and useful for downstream applications and preparing data to power AI capabilities. We’re excited about Microsoft Fabric because it makes data more accessible. It enables the data to be processed in a uniform manner and at a streamlined frequency, making it more predictable and manageable. The unique combination of Microsoft’s end-toend solutions in the cloud and AVEVA’s deep industry expertise and software applications helps businesses capitalise on the power of technology to become more agile, resilient and sustainable.
