Indian engineering group Cyient is collaborating with elevator company thyssenkrupp to support its MAX platform. MAX is a real-time, cloud-based predictive maintenance solution for the elevator industry.  Cyient's advanced analytics and big data solutions will be integrated into MAX to help deliver predictive maintenance solutions.

The solution, developed with Microsoft and using its Azure cloud platform and Azure IoT Suite, will now also incorporate Cyient created predictive analytics solutions.  Cyient will develop algorithms and integrated solutions to leverage data from thyssenkrupp's "things" -- its elevators, and enhance thyssenkrupp's ability to diagnose potential problems and deliver superior service.

Commenting on this occasion, Mr. Krishna Bodanapu, Managing Director and CEO, Cyient said, "We are very excited about Cyient's partnership with thyssenkrupp, especially in supporting their pursuit for innovative passenger transportation. Our collaboration will enhance thyssenkrupp's competitive advantage in the elevator industry with the help of advanced analytics and big data solutions. We are committed to continually developing unique competencies and analytics solutions for our clients through our dedicated data science competency centre, Cyient Insights."

Andreas Schierenbeck, CEO of thyssenkrupp Elevator, adds: "For us, MAX is an integral part of our plans to transform the elevator industry and enhance urban mobility in cities across the world. Building on our collaborations for MAX with Microsoft and Vodafone, we are glad to have found another strong partner for this solution in Cyient. We are confident that their expertise in analytics will help to further develop MAX's competencies, supporting our 24,000+ technicians in the field and taking elevator service into the digital era."
