Inherently scalable

Uncover new insights as your IoT data grows. Ingest and store billions of IoT events as you scale to hundreds of thousands of assets. With our pay-as-you go pricing, you get an end-to-end industrial IoT analytics platform that matures with your business.

Open and flexible

Make IoT data accessible to the masses. Use the Time Series Insights explorer for rich visualizations and a turnkey experience. Link industrial IoT data with other business metrics with the native Power BI connector. Build custom dashboards with the open-source data formats, rich APIs, and Javascript SDK.

IoT Plug and Play simplifies IoT (Easy, Fast, Powerful)

Build scalable solutions faster with IoT Plug and Play. Simplify device interactions in IoT solutions with an open modeling language. This not only enables a seamless device-to-cloud integration experience, but it also helps reduce development time, cost, and complexity.

Device Builders can build devices that integrate seamlessly with any Azure IoT cloud solution. Solution Builders can accelerate solutions without writing embedded code.

What can you build with Time Series Insights?

Data exploration and visual anomaly detection

Uncover the causes of abnormalities by analyzing billions of IoT events. Discover hidden trends based on relationships between sensors.
