Microsoft has partnered with Jasper to provide businesses with a new Internet of Things management solution that both companies claim will speed up time to market.
The companies are planning to combine Jasper's IoT services platform with Microsoft's Azure IoT suite, which manages and analyses the flow of data from the myriad of connected objects in an IoT network.
Jasper's Control Centre solution is a cloud-based platform that allows companies to deploy, manage and monetise IoT products for any type of connected device. The platform is designed to help enterprises scale up their IoT deployments and speed up the time it takes to roll them out.
The company works with more than 100 operator groups worldwide and the platform is present in over 100 countries.
Macario Namie, VP of Strategy at Jasper, said: “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.”
Sam George, Director of Azure IoT, said: “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 start-up or the most established global enterprises, can use to create new value. 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.”
