Azure IoT solution accelerators

Complete, ready-to-deploy solutions for common IoT scenarios

Build with comprehensive IoT cloud solution accelerators

Kick-start your implementation of common Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios like remote monitoring, industrial IoT (IIoT), predictive maintenance and device simulation. Get all the required cloud-based services you need—including all required application code—for a successful, efficient and streamlined build and deployment.

Get started fast: Deploy in minutes and upgrade at your own pace

Customize your solution: Maintain full control of your solution design and tailor already deployed services to meet your needs

Act on new insights: Visualize data in a preconfigured dashboard and set rules to trigger actions through the user interface

Use open source: The open source code base was designed on fully tested architecture and is available on GitHub

Azure IoT for device simulation

Develop and test your IoT solution on simulated devices using the device simulation solution accelerator. Conduct realistic tests using complex device models to emulate real-world scenarios. Use the device simulation web app to configure and run simulations.

Azure IoT solution accelerators FAQs

  • Construct IoT solutions in different ways depending on your IoT scenario and company needs. Azure IoT Central provides a fully managed software as a service (SaaS) solution, while solution accelerators provide a customisable platform as a service (PaaS) solution that runs in your Azure subscription.
  • Find links to the different language (C, .NET, Java, Node.js, Python) IoT device SDKs in the Microsoft Azure IoT SDKs GitHub repositories. If you are using the DevKit device, find resources and samples in the IoT DevKit SDK GitHub repository.
