Microsoft Increasing IoT Services and Support
Microsoft continues to simplify its Azure cloud while growing its IoT services and support. Today, the platform provides solutions to the challenges of preserving existing investments, addressing security issues, and managing complex technology environments.
These solutions include:
- Diverse edge and device offerings – Presently, over 7,000 OEMs build Windows IoT devices like human-machine interface for industrial PCs on factory floors, point-of-sales in retail, kiosks in transportation, medical equipment in healthcare, and the growing smart building automation sector.
- Comprehensive cloud-to-edge security – Controlling and governing increasingly complex environments that extend across data centers, multiple clouds and the edge can present security challenges. Azure Sphere can securely connect and protect IoT edge devices.
- Hybrid environment maximization – To take advantage of cloud innovations and maximize existing on-premises investments, organizations need an effective hybrid and multi-cloud strategy. Azure provides a holistic approach to manage, govern, and help to secure servers and Kubernetes clusters, as well as databases and apps across on-premises, multi-cloud and edge environments with Azure Arc, Azure private multi-access edge compute, and Azure Stack HCI.
- End-to-end product portfolio – Microsoft has a range of services for data intake, storage, reporting and insights. Services like Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Data Explorer, Azure Digital Twins, and Power BI pull information from disparate data streams into powerful dashboards and comprehensive digital models of real-world environments.
