Microsoft Cloud For Production Is Now Available


Microsoft Cloud, the cloud-based system of Microsoft that can meet the needs of all sectors for a while, will also operate for those who produce from today.


The last 18 months in the world will be remembered as a time period we will not soon forget. In particular, the disruptions in the manufacturing industry created by the pandemic; disrupted continuity, operational visibility, supply chains, remote working, employee safety and many more.

Production gets richer with Microsoft Cloud

Manufacturers who have already embraced digital transformation have emerged stronger against field conditions. Currently, many companies are just trying to adapt to this transformation in order to accelerate their activities.

These investments in digitization are also creating a data explosion. For example, the smart factory can produce 1 petabyte of data per day. All this data opens up opportunities for new services. Most companies don’t even use 1% of their data, let alone extract clear data. To truly understand your data and stay on track, you need intelligence-enhancing capabilities in the cloud. It is known that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella also has a few thoughts on this subject.

Microsoft Cloud for Production has industry-specific standards and communities, such as the Open Production Platform, the OPC Foundation, and the Digital Twins Consortium, and co-innovation with their ecosystem partners.

The company believes that disruptions from the pandemic are permanent, bringing with it a growing need for innovation and risk management, where old ways of doing business will no longer be sufficient. Manufacturers seek help to accelerate the transformation of not just their operations, but all aspects of their end-to-end business, including people and culture.
