MTEK Industry AB proudly announces a partnership with Microsoft, by becoming a Microsoft Independent Software Vendor (ISV).
Microsoft will provide MTEK with expertise inside Microsoft and their partner network to optimize the Azure solution for MTEKs software MBrain. From a technical perspective, focus areas will be cyber security and minimization of risks associated with downtime, and from a commercial perspective this partnership will accelerate the sales of the MBrain Azure-based cloud and hybrid on-prem/cloud deployments.
MBrain is a cloud- or hybrid, single or multi-site manufacturing intelligence software empowered with improvement tools. It is designed to support the people and processes of manufacturing companies.
As a No-Code system, MBrain is easy to deploy, requires no consultants or major involvement from IT - and causes no production stops. MBrain is built by humans – for humans. It connects to production machines and processes throughout the product life cycle, from design to end of life, and helps manufacturers achieve the most out of production by eliminating unnecessaries.
MTEK sees great value for their customers that has deployed MBrain via Azure, and how they can leverage the scalability and versatility enabled by cloud-first deployments. It creates benefits such as multisite functionality (collect, use, and utilize data from all factories), cost effective hosting, synchronized, and controlled updating procedures, to name a few. MBrain has the capability to visualize and analyze the explosion of data generated every day in the manufacturing and drive the right outcome of it.
On top of the Azure platform, MBrain integrates Microsoft Teams for communication of production signals (Andon). These capabilities will accelerate digitalization of manufacturing and pave the way for the next generation manufacturing. MTEKs CEO, Mattias Andersson is excited over the partnership and says “Connecting factories to the cloud is the future and I think it is our responsibility to lead that change by example. Our customers want all benefits that the cloud solution enables, and I see a big potential in partnership to build an even better cloud solution. To have this close partnership with Microsoft and the partner network is a benefit for us as we progress towards our goal and vision – and to take lead in Industry 5.0. MBrain already does this and given that we share this vision with Microsoft, I am sure our collaboration with Microsoft Azure will make that happen even faster.” It is a perfect timing for this partnership, as Microsoft is expanding their cloud services within the industrial sector with the launch of the Manufacturing Cloud. MTEK is fast growing and MBrain is very quickly being deployed with customers all over the world.
About MTEK MTEK believes in simplifying manufacturing – to improve factory and financial performance and does this by providing digital building blocks liberating the value of data locked up and hidden in production machines and processes. At MTEK, we help our customers Make Things Better.
