Quebec – July 30, 2018. – DimOnOff today announced its participation in Microsoft CityNext, a global initiative enabling cities to be more sustainable, safer and inclusive of all citizens across the socioeconomic spectrum. Through the Microsoft CityNext initiative, DimOnOff will extend the power of Microsoft’s vast software and cloud solution portfolio by building intelligent solutions that allow cities to become connected societies through modernizing its infrastructure, optimizing city operations and improving sustainability.

Being a Microsoft CityNext partner also means DimOnOff offers deployment of SCMS Connect {ED} on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. For smart cities, deploying this state-of-the-art IoT management platform on Azure, as part of a hybrid or full SaaS deployment, gives access to increased stability and security of data flow, always up-to-date software, as well as a zero-maintenance and cost-efficient IT solution.

“Joining Microsoft’s CityNext initiative represents a logical step for DimOnOff, says Bernard Tetu, CEO at DimOnOff. As every major city moves towards implementing cloud-based solutions to improve their services such as providing security through smart street lighting, increasing multi-modal traffic fluidity and synergy, reducing health and social inequities, attracting talents and businesses; local governments everywhere are looking for innovative and future proof concepts and technologies. For the last twelve years, DimOnOff has proven time and time again its ability to provide the most robust smart city solutions and IoT platform on the market.”

As the worldwide trend toward urbanization rapidly increases and societies are more digitally connected than ever before, cities are continually looking for digital solutions that enable them to make data-driven decisions and provide improved citizen-centric services. To help meet the demands of urbanization, Microsoft CityNext is helping cities leverage the Azure cloud platform and partner ecosystem to harness the next generation of innovation and implement solutions that help with a wide range of city services including end-to-end transit management, utility operations and public safety. As a result, cities are able to be more flexible, agile and responsive.

“Our partnership with DimOnOff is in line with our commitment to empower every person on the planet to achieve more.,” said Jason Hermitage, Vice-President of Public Sector at Microsoft Canada. “Microsoft CityNext and DimOnOff solutions will help cities leverage the Azure platform to harness the next generation of innovation and implement strategic, data-driven solutions that will build a vibrant economy and help cities raise their competitiveness.”
