Honeywell to leverage Microsoft Azure cloud platform and connect Microsoft Dynamics 365 to Honeywell Forge
Honeywell and Microsoft announced that Honeywell will bring to market its domain-specific applications built on the Microsoft cloud platform.
“Honeywell’s partnership with Microsoft will deliver new value to our customers as we help them solve business challenges by digitizing their operations,” said Que Dallara, president and CEO, Honeywell Connected Enterprise, in a prepared statement. “Working with Microsoft, Honeywell will bring solutions at scale – powered by AI-driven insights and immediate access to data – that will help our customers work more efficiently than ever before.”
The integration of the Honeywell Forge enterprise performance management software with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Field Service will allow customers to be able to access operating data that includes workflow management support to improve performance and energy efficiency within the enterprise environment.
According to a company statement, the Dynamics 365 Field Service will allow companies to remotely detect and address potential issues early to avoid unnecessary downtime or operational inefficiencies by analyzing IoT data and to improve proactive service offerings through AI-infused IoT alerts and work orders.
“To achieve resilient operations and sustainable growth, businesses need to partner to fully unlock the opportunities of cloud, AI and IoT technologies. By integrating Honeywell and Microsoft services, companies turn IoT data into critical business insights and actions to optimize operations and deliver new customer value faster,” said Judson Althoff, executive vice-president, Microsoft’s Worldwide Commercial Business.
