Bsquare announced that it is working with Microsoft Corp. to ensure DataV, a complete Internet of Things (IoT) software stack, is able to fully utilize the Microsoft Azure IoT Suite and Microsoft Azure IoT Hub. Combining DataV software with Azure IoT technology allows businesses to quickly and more easily realize the business value inherent in many emerging IoT use cases such as predictive failure, data-driven diagnostics, and condition-based serving.

DataV is a complete IoT software stack that businesses can employ to connect remote devices, monitor data streams, automate corrective processes, predict adverse conditions before they occur, and, ultimately, optimize the performance of critical business assets and processes. Built in a completely modular fashion, DataV includes software components that reside on devices as well as machine learning, data analytics, and business rule processing that reside in private data centers or public cloud infrastructure.

According to Scott Caldwell, Bsquare Vice President of Worldwide OEM sales, “By integrating DataV with Microsoft Azure IoT Suite and Microsoft Azure IoT Hub, Bsquare is providing its DataV customers with maximum flexibility in deployment options. The work we are doing with Microsoft takes advantage of our advanced systems integration capabilities, as well as decades of experience engineering intelligent, connected devices that represent the core of IoT systems.”

Alysa Taylor, GM, US Cloud and Enterprise Business, Microsoft added, “Bsquare’s utilization of Microsoft Azure IoT Hub and Microsoft Azure IoT Suite provides customers with easy, comprehensive and scalable IoT solutions. This will help our customers reduce cost, drive revenue and create new revenue streams by digitalization of their assets and connecting people, technology & business processes.”

In working with Microsoft, Bsquare provides customized IoT solutions that combine the strength of DataV software and Azure IoT technology to deliver real world business outcomes. These outcomes cut across many vertical markets, but share common uses cases that ensure increased asset uptime, reduced service and warranty costs, and lead to better designed and more reliable products and services.
