MAJiK Systems, provider of an IoT-centered software suite that allows manufacturers to drive operational excellence by natively connecting to PLCs and SCADA systems, today announced the availability of Visual Factory in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Microsoft Azure. MAJiK Systems customers can now take advantage of the scalability, high availability, and security of Azure, with streamlined deployment and management.
With the advent of Industry 4.0, manufacturers have felt the pressure to make more data-informed decisions on the factory floor. MAJiK’s Visual Factory solution allows them to do just that by visually displaying production information that allows them to measure and manage KPIs in real time, track and monitor factory operations, and ultimately improve processes.
MAJiK has been a favorite on-premises solution of innovative manufacturers for many years. Now MAJiK is bringing its manufacturing software domain expertise to bear on new challenges that its customers face with moving operations to the cloud, integrating more business workflows, and exploring opportunities to leverage big data and AI.
MAJiK’s manufacturing customers already trust Microsoft products in their business and supply chains, and now they can take advantage of the quick integration MAJiK provides to easily connect to their plant floor. MAJiK’s Visual Factory provides the dashboards and analytics required for lean transformation out-of-the box for manufacturers, and users who collect data with Visual Factory can easily share it with Microsoft Power Apps, Microsoft Power BI, Azure Time Series Insights, and Microsoft Dynamics 365.
“Manufacturers using Microsoft Azure’s cloud-based tools already know the value of using data to drive their operations,” said MAJiK Systems co-founder and COO Jared Evans. “Now with the ability to access real-time equipment and production data using MAJiK’s Visual Factory directly within their Azure tenant, these customers can tie multiple operations and business systems together in real time and make informed decisions that improve productivity, streamline operations, and upgrade production quality.”
Sajan Parihar, Senior Director, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp. said, “We’re pleased to welcome Visual Factory from MAJiK Systems to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, which gives our partners great exposure to cloud customers around the globe. Azure Marketplace offers world-class quality experiences from global trusted partners with solutions tested to work seamlessly with Azure.”
