Orange Business Services has joined hands with software major Microsoft to deliver Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that can boost the digital processes of companies in the manufacturing sector.
Enterprises can use the Orange modular IoT solution, Datavenue, powered by Microsoft Azure IoT Suite, to transition to Industry 4.0 and optimize the entire manufacturing value chain.
Orange Business Services has delivered a customized IoT platform to Bosch Group company e.l.m. leblanc on Microsoft Azure.
“We relied on Orange Business Services’ expertise to develop Optibox solution. Using the Azure Cloud allows for high-level scalability and efficient machine learning solutions with reasonable costs,” said Philippe Laforge, chief executive of e.l.m. leblanc.
The remote monitoring solution collects the boiler’s data and alerts technicians of any malfunction. This allows for more efficient maintenance intervention, with fine-tuned predictions on the probable causes of failure based on real-time data analytics.
Preemptive alerts can also be raised by the platform through predictive maintenance algorithms. Benefits include optimization of intervention processes, and increased end-customer satisfaction, thanks to innovative and responsive customer support.
Orange will demonstrate e.l.m. leblanc’s predictive maintenance platform at Microsoft Experience in Paris on 3-4 October 2017 and IoT Solutions World Congress 2017 in Barcelona from 3-5 October 2017.
The software environment provided by Microsoft will allow for the use of advanced solutions such as Cortana Intelligence Suite (advanced analytics and AI), Power BI (data visualization) and Mobile Apps (Xamarin) to ensure a flawless mobile user experience.
“By adding Azure IoT solutions to our Datavenue portfolio, we provide our customers with powerful software with the assurance that it will seamlessly integrate with Microsoft’s business applications, an industry standard,” said Beatrice Felder, executive vice president, Customer Experience, IoT and Analytics, Orange Business Services.
