Elevating IIoT: Elevat Announces New Strategic Partnership with Microsoft

By Alex Passett

If you’ve read any IIoT News Hub or IoT Evolution articles I’ve penned, it’s pretty clear I’m a language nerd, through and through.

So, let’s tie together an Internet of Things-centric topic to a very pertinent language symbol known as a macron. (No relation to France’s current president.)

The long-story-short of it: A macron is a diacritical mark that denotes a long vowel sound. It has Greco-Roman roots and is markedly different from its dieresis counterpart, which is represented by the two dots over a letter, like ä or ü.

Rather, a macron looks more like a letter with a straight horizontal line on top; think e for an “ee” sound like in “bead” or o for an “oh” sound like in “grow.”

Or, in today’s case, that makes an “ay” sound like in “say.”

Specifically, we’re talking about a company known as Elevat – not like “vat” though (like a vat of syrup), but instead more like “elevate.”

Elevat (or simply Elevat, since not every online search will catch the macron) is an IoT company that creates solutions which elevate businesses’ machine telematics to deliver next-gen tech advancements, increase uptime and boost connectivity, and reduce operating expenses while maximizing profits. Elevat’s industrial machine experts strive to, quote, “develop world-class solutions for all customers and partners alike.”

Elevat was launched to respond to many customers’ needs for a cloud-based IoT solution that helps them far more consistently and accurately monitor and manage their machines (all while gaining actionable data). Elevat’s teams work to make integrating machine data easier; notably, integrating it with existing OEM processes, ERP, aftermarket parts and maintenance contract applications and systems.

In short, Elevat makes cloud and IoT systems work in smarter ways for industrial machinery manufacturers, distributors, fleet operators and end users.

Now, Elevat is adding a new leg to its elevating journey through a brand-new partnership – a highly strategic and technical one, at that – with none other than Microsoft.

Leveraging Elevat Machine Connect and Microsoft Azure Edge, this collab takes aim at accelerating digital transformation through reshaped IoT (while empowering businesses with unprecedented connectivity and insights).

Both Elevat and Microsoft have taken great notice of IoT’s upward trajectory in recent years. Together, per the official announcement, the key highlights of this partnership are to include:

  • Enhanced Connectivity: Elevat Machine Connect are set to be tightly integrated with Microsoft Azure Edge, providing “seamless connectivity and data flow between edge devices and the cloud.” This unified approach is ideal for ensuring that businesses are able to harness the full potential of their IoT ecosystem.
  • Advanced Analytics: Leveraging Microsoft Azure Edge's capabilities, Elevat Machine Connect will enable organizations to “analyze data at the source, extracting valuable insights in real-time.” This can empower businesses to make data-driven decisions that drive measurable operational efficiency.
  • Scalability: The combined solution offers, according to the two companies, “unmatched scalability, allowing businesses to easily scale their IoT deployments to accommodate evolving needs and growth.”
  • Security: Microsoft's security infrastructure and Elevat's commitment to data protection are poised to ensure that IoT deployments remain secure, reliably safeguarding sensitive information from malicious threats.
  • Ease of Deployment: Elevat Machine Connect with Azure Edge can provide a simplified deployment process, enabling organizations to quickly and cost-effectively implement IoT solutions.

In a statement, Adam Livesay, co-founder of Elevat, expressed their excitement about this collaboration:

"Microsoft and Elevat share a common vision of transforming industries through innovative IoT solutions,” Livesay said. “Together, we will empower Industrial OEMs to unlock the full potential of their data and create new opportunities for growth. This partnership marks a significant milestone in our journey towards a more connected and intelligent world."
