The Canvass Analytics software applies industrial artificial intelligence (AI) to automate the entire data analysis process, creating predictive data models that continually adapt to data changes in real-time. Together, Canvass Analytics and Microsoft help operations teams to reveal hidden insights in their data that can result in maximizing asset up-time, optimizing maintenance planning, improving quality and continuously optimizing production processes.

Humera Malik, CEO of Canvass Analytics said:
"This collaboration brings together Microsoft and Canvass Analytics' leadership in supporting industrial companies to achieve the benefits of Industry 4.0. By using Azure with Canvass Analytics' AI-powered predictive analytics, our customers will transform their Industry 4.0 data strategies, enabling them to derive value out of the massive amounts of data in their factory floors and achieve real commercial benefits."

Bharat Sandhu, Director of Product Marketing, Big Data and Analytics, Microsoft Corp. said:
"Despite manufacturers having millions of data points being collected from their machines each day, the majority of data is still sitting idle. By integrating Microsoft Azure with Canvass Analytics, industrial companies can turn their attention to gaining value out of their data in the form of predictive insights and accelerating their Industry 4.0 strategies."
