Smarter Mobility: Microsoft Connected Fleets Reference Architecture, Now Adopted by Wejo


In IT and IoT, a reference architecture provides a set of recommended structures and integrations for products and services in order to form solutions. It embodies industry best practices in an easy-to-understand format to guide the implementation hand of complex solutions in tech.

In reference architecture-related news, autonomous and electric vehicle data solutions provider Wejo announced that it is extending its collaboration with Microsoft through the adoption of the Microsoft Connected Fleets reference architecture.

Since 2014, Wejo has made access to connected car data easier and more secure. Now, Wejo dives into the Microsoft partner ecosystem that addresses the fleet management market by helping its independent software providers (ISVs) and system integrators (SIs), along with other fleet managers.

The long-story-short of this Wejo-Microsoft objective is to derive even more actionable insights by going beyond once-limited data sets and basic dashboards. By integrating fleet data into its core business procedures, the Microsoft Connected Fleets reference architecture will enable the simplification of specialized analytics and value extraction from vehicle data, thus streamlining Wejo’s real-time processes.

With the reference architecture adopted for this extended collab, ISVs, SIs, and fleet managers can access Wejo’s connected vehicle data more efficiently, facilitate faster integrations with customer-specific requirements, enable functions for field-specific services, deliver fleet management capabilities without the need to retrofit hardware, and more.

“With Microsoft Connected Fleets,” said Richard Barlow, Wejo’s CEO, “Wejo will expand its footprint in this space while embracing Microsoft’s scalability, reliability, and agility to drive application development and shape future business strategies. We’re excited to be part of the Connected Fleets interconnected ecosystem of partner solutions and work with Microsoft on delivering the data and insights necessary to fleet customers and partners worldwide to keep everyone safe while driving fleet efficiencies.”
