Indian ride hailing service Ola has tied up with Microsoft
The platform will help with a vehicle's diagnostics, predictive maintenance and navigation, Bengaluru-headquartered Ola said in a statement.
"Both companies will collaborate to take this platform to car manufacturers globally, to integrate with vehicle systems," it said.
Microsoft is also in talks over potential investment in Ola, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters. The US company's CEO Satya Nadella is currently in India.
Indian newspaper Mint reported in July that Microsoft was looking to invest up to $100 million in Ola parent ANI Technologies.
The funding from Microsoft could be part of this second tranche, the source said, adding that Ola will switch completely from the Amazon Web Services cloud platform to Microsoft Azure over the next few quarters.
A spokesman for Ola said there are no fundraising talks in progress with Microsoft at this time.
