Join us and our journey towards engaging in the opportunities that digital offerings and massive amounts of data can provide to our customers and business. As a global leader in advanced pumping solutions and water technology, we are committed to making the full water cycle more efficient so clean water is available to more people. We are on the journey to engage in the opportunities that IoT and data can provide to our partnerships around the world. Many of our products and solutions are already today connected, but much more is to come! Consequently, Grundfos will undertake a vast and exciting task of building a big data and IoT ecosystem to continuously develop and offer new services or complete digital products. The big data and IoT ecosystem will build a bridge between 4 distinct digital tracks:
- Real-time relations with customers and end-users
- Data and connectivity in our products
- New business models
- Digital value chain and services
Using the Microsoft Azure IoT platform, we are collecting pump data from intelligent sensors in real-time and synthesize it to empower smart pumps to help predict, prevent, and react to water issues. We also use the Microsoft Azure IoT platform to remotely perform command and control tasks and update the firmware in the pumps and gateways. These capabilities and many more will set the stage in offering new services that can further add value to our customers, improve disaster relief and sanitation, and save lives.
