Eaton partners with Microsoft to advance intelligent power
The intersection of the Internet of Things (IoT) and power management innovation is transforming the way businesses operate. Analysts estimate that the industrial IoT will add $14.2 trillion to the global economy by 2030 (source: Accenture), making it one of the most important forces shaping the future of the business world today.
Our digital approach is enabling rapid innovation in this arena and making it easier for customers to integrate connected technologies. Already, we’ve reduced engineering time by more than a million hours, allowing our teams to dramatically increase the number of IoT products in development.
We’ve partnered with Microsoft to establish a consistent connectivity platform for intelligent power across electrical applications. The collaboration establishes Microsoft Azure as our cloud computing platform, creating a firm foundation for developing Eaton’s enterprise-wide intelligent power solutions. With a uniform foundation for these digital solutions and a robust cybersecurity program, we can infuse connectivity into more solutions faster and help customers make more informed energy decisions that drive productivity, profitability and power continuity.
