Copa-Data wins the 2017 Microsoft Internet of Things (IoT) Award

Copa-Data wins the 2017 Microsoft Internet of Things (IoT) Award

Microsoft has crowned Copa-Data as its global Microsoft Partner of the Year in the Internet of Things (IoT) category. The award was presented at this year's Microsoft Inspire, the company's worldwide partner conference. This award is a recognition by Microsoft of COPA-DATA's innovations and software solutions based on Microsoft technology.

Each year, Microsoft presents its sought-after Partner of the Year Awards at its worldwide partner conference. This year, projects were submitted by more than 2,800 companies across 115 countries in a total of 34 global categories and 103 national categories. Following on from two victories at the Microsoft Awards last year, this is the third prize for COPA-DATA. The company was honoured for its solutions and services involving its zenon software system in the global Internet of Things (IoT) category.

“This success is excellent proof of the high quality and performance demonstrated by our IoT solutions based on our zenon software and the latest Microsoft technologies and products, especially the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, including the Azure IoT Suite,” explains Johannes Petrowisch, Global Partner & Business Development Manager at Copa-Data. “We are extremely pleased with this award and would like to thank all our customers and partners who have made this achievement possible.”

Triumph at the 2017 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards was based on an IoT application by Copa-Data, which uses the technological interaction between zenon and Microsoft Azure to prepare equipment manufacturers for digitization in the industry. This gives users access to all data relating to individual machines, assembly lines, or a company's entire production site from a single system. Additional services such as predictive analysis, machine learning, cross-site reporting, remote maintenance, and control can be fully cloud-based or implemented in hybrid scenarios – opening the door to service-oriented business models.

“Our ecosystem of innovative partners is the cornerstone to delivering transformative solutions to our mutual customers,” said Ron Huddleston Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft Corp. “We are pleased to recognise Copa-Data for being selected as winner of the 2017 Microsoft Internet of Things (IoT) Worldwide Partner of the Year award.”
