“Openness and Interoperability are keys for the success of Eliot."
Underpinned by the Eliot program, Legrand is increasing its alliances. The challenge is to join forces to speak a common language, such that connected objects are able to communicate with each other. These alliances function on three levels of interoperability: locally, in IT networks and in the cloud.

The Legrand Cloud and API are both developed using Microsoft Azure.
