The Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies (JJMDC) will cooperate with Microsoft to improve and expand its digital surgery environment. Microsoft will be the chosen Cloud provider for JJMDC’s digital surgery solutions under the terms of the agreement. JJMDC will be able to expand its digital surgery platform and Internet of Things (IoT) device connectivity as a result of its partnership with Microsoft.
JJMDC will use Microsoft Cloud technologies such as Azure, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning, as well as Dynamics 365 and Microsoft 365 to accelerate its innovations, with a focus on increasing skills, enhancing workflows, and improving surgical decision making. “Collaborating with Microsoft will help us take our digital strategy to the next level as we establish a best-in-class, unified platform across our revolutionary surgical technologies,” said Larry Jones, CIO and global vice-president of Johnson & Johnson medical devices.
Furthermore, the companies will use Azure capabilities and services to speed up digital innovation and transformation across JJMDC’s digital surgery ecosystem.
