C3 IoT and Microsoft Corporation are joining together for a strategic partnership to deliver new technology developments and go-to-market initiatives. The companies hope to accelerate the enterprise AI and IoT application development.

Because of this partnership, the companies will create a “better together” solution, which will create the C3 IoT Platform. This platform is a low-code, high-productivity PaaS for scaling AI and IoT across enterprises. It is fully integrated to operate on Microsoft Azure. C3 IoT will leverage the Microsoft platform as a preferred cloud platform and tap into the power of its intelligent capabilities.

“With this partnership, two market leaders are joining forces to drive digital transformation at the world’s leading organizations,” said Thomas M. Siebel, CEO, C3 IoT. “Combining the market reach of Microsoft, the amazing power of Microsoft Azure, and the capability of the C3 IoT AI platform, we will dramatically accelerate the adoption of AI, IoT, and elastic cloud computing globally.”

The companies will conduct co-marketing and co-selling strategies that will rapidly scale distribution globally. The companies will also provide intensive training for dedicated teams to speed customers’ time to value.

“The partnership between Microsoft and C3 IoT is significant in that it allows us to optimize our existing investments in data infrastructure while accelerating time to value of AI-based applications that enable Shell to better serve our customers with even more agility and efficiency,” said Erik Betz, vice president, Architecture, Platforms, and Data, Shell.

Microsoft and C3 IoT will assist to enable customers to more rapidly develop and deploy AI-based applications for transformative use cases. These cases include AI predictive maintenance, dynamic inventory optimization, precision healthcare and CRM.

The C3 IoT Platform is available on Microsoft Azure. It comes fully integrated with a rich set of Azure services. These services include Azure IoT Hub, Azure Machine Learning and big data and advanced analytics solutions.

“AI is one of the most transformative technology paradigms of our time in its ability to empower companies, societies, and economies to achieve more,” said Judson Althoff, executive vice president, Worldwide Commercial Business, Microsoft. “C3 IoT’s proven technology and strong customer relationships make them an ideal partner in helping drive forward AI-based solutions built on the intelligent cloud.”
