How Microsoft Empowers IoT Innovators
Microsoft has played a central role in facilitating Internet of Things forerunners including SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) and M2M (Machine to Machine) since the 1990s. We’ve provided real-time, embedded platforms to power sensors that no one ever sees, advanced robotics, medical devices and human machine interfaces (HMI) just to name a few. Today, Microsoft Azure IoT services delivers hyper-scale telemetry ingestion, streaming analytics, machine learning and other components to unlock insights from the Internet of Your Things in order to transform your business.
