Microsoft has added new capabilities to its Internet of Things platform making it one of the first to support emerging industrial use cases such as Edge Analytics and device management.
Microsoft is one of the few companies to deliver end-to-end IoT capabilities covering the entire spectrum of solutions.
Customers with experienced technical teams can build highly customized solutions by connecting the dots from the Azure services portfolio.
They can use IoT Hub, Event Hub, Stream Analytics, Azure ML, Azure Functions, DocumentDB, and Power BI to build powerful IoT applications.
Enterprise customers can pick an existing template targeting remote monitoring or predictive maintenance scenarios, and customize them for their needs.
This reduces the cost and effort involved in developing a cloud-based IoT solution from the ground up.
