Seeq announces solution for Microsoft Sustainability Manager

The new solution enables sustainability teams to leverage advanced analytics to accelerate organisational efforts to record, report and reduce emissions

Seeq has announced the Seeq Solution for Microsoft Sustainability Manager. The solution enables sustainability teams to extend the power of Microsoft Sustainability Manager, a Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability solution, to integrate time series process data preparation, analysis, and continuous improvement, reducing the environmental impact of process industry operations.

Analysing time series data from equipment sensors is critical for measuring sustainability impact at process manufacturing companies. Microsoft Sustainability Manager enables these organisations to unify their data to record, report and reduce their environmental impact. By leveraging the new Seeq Solution for Microsoft Sustainability Manager, these organisations can extend this experience by radically decreasing data connectivity, preparation, and analytics efforts.

With the solution, the Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability data model is incorporated into the Seeq workflow for consistency of emissions data. Process experts leverage Seeq’s live data connectivity and auditable data cleansing and contextualisation capabilities to enrich their time series emissions data, reducing manual data preparation time by up to 80%. Sustainability teams can access this contextualised data within Microsoft Sustainability Manager to track direct (Scope 1) and indirect (Scope 2) emissions for reports and to set and track accurate emissions reduction goals.

“As a Microsoft Partner, Seeq is committed to help our shared customers navigate their infrastructure and data challenges to achieve measurable sustainability gains,” said Megan Buntain, VP of Cloud Transformation at Seeq. “The Seeq Solution for Microsoft Sustainability Manager is the latest of our solutions built on the Seeq platform to make time series data insights available to all stakeholders for improved outcomes in process manufacturing.”

In addition to providing access to the operational data for the corporate sustainability teams, Seeq solution empowers subject matter experts to identify root causes of issues and opportunities for optimisation on an asset operations level. These insights provide continuous-improvement feedback as reports and system-wide emissions views are assembled and utilised by corporate teams in Microsoft Sustainability Manager. Real-time collaboration capabilities within Seeq enable asset operations teams to streamline communications with the broader organisation, improving cross-functional awareness and emissions management.

“Seeq adds value to our mutual customers by integrating their solutions with Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability,” says Dominik Wee, CVP, manufacturing and mobility industry, Microsoft. “The Seeq Solution for Microsoft Sustainability Manager addresses a variety of pain points related to emissions’ data availability recording, reporting and reduction and enables customers to accelerate the success of their sustainability initiatives.”

Within the Microsoft booth at Hannover Messe from 17-21 Apr, the Seeq team will showcase the Seeq Solution for Microsoft Sustainability Manager and demonstrate how process manufacturers can leverage Seeq in the Microsoft Cloud to uncover insights to achieve sustainability and reliability goals.
