Microsoft today unveiled Azure Data Manager for Energy, an enterprise-grade OSDU™ Data Platform solution that enables the efficient development of software applications for energy companies.
Launched on the sidelines of the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) 2023, Azure Data Manager for Energy rapidly ingests data from a number of different sources and provides a variety of tools for analysing the data to generate valuable insights into energy production, consumption, and efficiency. This allows energy companies to quickly develop and deploy new applications, as well as make more informed decisions about their operations.
