Jasper Partners With Microsoft for Enterprise IoT Service Management
30 July 2015 – Jasper, a global Internet of Things (IoT) platform leader, today announced a strategic partnership with Microsoft to provide enterprises worldwide with an IoT service management solution that enables them to bring new IoT services to market faster, facilitate their shift from product businesses to services businesses, and rapidly scale. Through joint engineering efforts, the companies are combining the power of the Jasper IoT services platform and the Microsoft Azure IoT Suite, available in preview later this year.
"More than 2,000 enterprises across dozens of industries worldwide have selected the Jasper Platform to enable them to deliver IoT services that increase customer value and grow revenues," said Macario Namie, VP of Strategy at Jasper (above). "Through this strategic partnership with Microsoft, we continue to increase the business value of IoT by making it easier and faster for enterprises to bring their IoT services to market, and to scale those services globally."
The Azure IoT Suite extends existing Azure capabilities to connect devices and other assets (i.e. "things"), capture the diverse and voluminous data they generate, and integrate and orchestrate the flow of that data. The suite also manages, analyzes and presents device data as usable information to help businesses make better decisions, while also intelligently automating operations. The offering, while customizable to fit the unique needs of any organization, also provides complete applications which speed deployment of common scenarios seen across many industries, such as remote monitoring, asset management and predictive maintenance, while providing the ability to grow and scale solutions to millions of "things."
Jasper Control Center, Jasper's IoT services platform, is a cloud-based IoT platform that enables companies of all sizes to rapidly and cost-effectively deploy, manage and monetize IoT services for any connected device. The platform, which is easily configurable to meet the unique requirements of business across industries, gives companies the real-time visibility, intelligence and control they need to accelerate time-to-market, automate operations, optimize performance, troubleshoot and fix issues, and manage costs. As those companies grow, Control Center makes it easy for them to seamlessly scale their businesses across the globe. Jasper partners with 25 mobile operator groups, representing more than 100 mobile operator networks worldwide, to deliver the benefits of Control Center in over 100 countries.
"Our vision for the Azure IoT Suite is to help companies thrive in this era of IoT by delivering preconfigured solutions and world class services that any company, whether startup or the most established global enterprises, can use to create new value," said Sam George, Director of Azure IoT. "Jasper's IoT services platform is a critical component of delivering on this vision. By bringing together the Jasper Platform and the Azure IoT Suite, businesses of any size and in any industry can build cost effective IoT solutions for themselves or their customers."
The combination of the Jasper Platform and the Azure IoT Suite will provide enterprises worldwide with the following advantages:
- Faster Time-to-Market - Enterprises in any industry can accelerate time to market of their IoT services by taking advantage of pre-established, deep integration across all technology layers -- connectivity, application, and data.
- Global Visibility - Businesses gain a global view of their IoT deployments -- including both device data and Control Center IoT service data -- through the Azure IoT Suite experience.
- Automated Business Decisions - The solution delivers richer insights that inform more sophisticated decision-making.
