Internet of Things for every business—Power digital transformation by unlocking insights from your connected devices. Transform those insights into action through powerful applications to create new revenue and business opportunities.
The Internet of Things (IoT) can be a lot of things – a robotic arm in a connected factory, sensors that help monitor and control a smart building or home, an intelligent coffee machine in your office and much more. IoT creates vast business opportunities, but also some challenges. It can be time-consuming to get started, and security is complex and spans devices, connectivity and data. It can be hard to make sense of what you need and who to work with.
Azure IoT simplifies IoT and helps you get started quickly and easily. With the most comprehensive IoT portfolio – spanning solutions, platform services and industry-leading edge technologies – you can create operational efficiencies, new revenue streams and better customer experiences. When you connect your business with IoT, the opportunities are endless.
Accelerate your IoT journey with fully managed and industry-specific IoT solutions, or build a customised IoT application that enables fine-grain control. Either way, Azure IoT offers powerful and secure IoT solutions that will meet your needs today and into the future.
