Uptake Fusion Now Available on Microsoft Azure Marketplace

Microsoft Azure users deploying Ignition now have access to Uptake Fusion for cost-effective data integration in the cloud and advanced analytics

Uptake, an industrial artificial intelligence (AI) software company, has announced the availability of Uptake Fusion Cloud Datastore for Ignition by Inductive Automation on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace

Operators in industries such as chemicals, oil and gas, renewables, manufacturing, and mining can purchase Uptake Fusion from the Marketplace and install it directly into their enterprise tenant in Azure. Users are able to transfer their OT data in Ignition to Azure for greater enterprise access and usability, at a minimum of 20,000 events per second throughput. 

Uptake Fusion establishes a connector with Ignition and then transports OT data to Azure for long-term storage. Once in the enterprise tenant, internal and third-party consumers have access to the data with an open format for visualisation, analytics, and orchestration, allowing them to use Microsoft Power BI, PowerApps, and Azure Time Series Insights or their preferred tools to derive data insights. There is an offline datastore that secures the stream against loss, with built-in recovery features.

Mitigating risks

“Better business decisions that optimise costs, mitigate risks, and enhance revenue assurance all begin with the elevation of high-fidelity operational data to the cloud,” said Dr. Dave Shook, Chief Data Officer at Uptake. “With Uptake Fusion, companies can now cost-effectively scale the development of context-rich advanced applications across their organisation. That way, individual decision-makers have the frontline intelligence they need, whether that is operational monitoring, reporting, or planning.”

Protecting critical underlying plant systems from cyber-threats, Uptake Fusion reduces the number of connections between data collection systems like Ignition and the SaaS platforms operators already have in place. 

“The out-of-the-box collection and cross-platform compatibility that Ignition users know and leverage on a day-to-day basis are extended to the cloud by Uptake Fusion,” shared Don Pearson, Chief Strategy Officer at Inductive Automation. “This integration empowers Ignition users with the data-centric, cost-effective approach to industrial intelligence for rapid use across their organisations.”

Uptake also recently announced the availability of Uptake Fusion for OSIsoft PI users, as well as its partnership with Wipro, a global information technology, consulting, and business process company. Uptake also recently acquired ShookIOT, an industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions provider.
