With this transaction, Microsoft will be combining comprehensive industry models from ADRM with it storage and compute from Azure to enable the creation of an intelligent lake where data from multiple lines of business can be harmonized and analyzed over a single platform instead of companies implementing data modeling on a fragmented basis.
“In advancing our mission to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more, Microsoft has been investing in the power of data and artificial intelligence (AI) to continuously innovate, influence and enhance customer experience and partner growth,” said Ravi Krishnaswamy, Corporate Vice President, Azure.
“We’re excited to welcome the ADRM team to Microsoft, and together look forward to advancing the digital transformation journeys of our partners and customers.”
According to Microsoft, companies running a disparate data estate are limited in their capabilities to support the kinds of digital transformation required today. The giant further states that, ADRM and Microsoft Azure combined capabilities will be delivered at scale, enabling customers to accelerate digital progress, and reduce risk in a variety of major initiatives.
“ADRM’s industry data models help our customers to establish a comprehensive, integrated data foundation upon which to base their digital transformation and next generation information architectures,” said Kevin Schofield, President and CEO of ADRM Software Inc.
“As we worked closely with the Azure team during the past year, we became very enthusiastic about the tremendous additional acceleration we can unlock for enterprise customers by combining ADRM’s comprehensive industry data models with the limitless storage and compute from Azure to power the next generation of intelligent data lakes, modern DWs, next-level analytics, and AI/ML.”
As announced, the entire ADRM team has now joined Microsoft’s Azure global organization, and Microsoft is now the owner of ADRM collection of large-scale industry-specific data models as well.
