Get Started with Azure IoT Services 

Whether you’re building new industrial connected products or seeking data from existing machines and devices in the field, we’ll help you understand and choose the right Azure services and architecture.

Edge software

Industrial IoT value begins at the edge, and Microsoft provides components for embedded systems and gateways including Azure IoT Hub SDK, Azure IoT Edge, and Azure Sphere. We’ll help you get the most out of these services along with custom options for legacy and resource-constrained devices. 

IoT data collection

We’ll show you how to design and build a solution for mixed fleets and different device capabilities to support your new and legacy equipment. Azure IoT Hub, Event Hub, and Azure Functions enable a wide variety of data collection and device management scenarios.

Data transformation & processing

It’s not easy handling the volume, velocity, and variety of data sent to the cloud from your devices. That’s where Azure Service Bus, along with Blob and Queue Storage come in for initial serialization and temporary storage enabling rapid processing with Azure Functions and Azure Streaming Analytics to derive initial insights and direct future actions. 

IoT data storage

How you store IoT data has big implications for security, performance, and cost. We’ll help you build a solution with the right combination of Azure Blob Storage, Cosmos DB, and Azure SQL to meet your requirements and goals, including support for legacy on-premise databases with Hybrid Connections.

Analytics & applications

Now it’s time to turn data into business value with Azure Logic Apps and API Management to build automated workflows and secure system access with Active Directory support. We’ll bring in Azure Machine Learning & AI to optimize equipment performance, and design serverless, container-based, or traditional stacks using Azure Functions, Kubernetes Service, Container Registry, and VMs depending on your IT preferences.

Business integration & reporting

Different audiences need to understand your business in a variety of ways. Get more from your solution across your enterprise with options like Power BI and Azure Time Series Insights for visualizing your data and seeing deeper into facility and supply chain activity, including the relationships between people, places, and devices with Azure Digital Twins. We’ll help you understand and enable the Azure IoT services that best fit your needs and goals.
