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.”
The companies announced that the C3 IoT Platform is now available on Microsoft Azure and fully integrated with a set of Azure services such as Azure Machine Learning, Azure IoT Hub, and big data and advanced analytics solutions.
