Microsoft has announced a new service, called IoT Central , which is aimed primarily at business customers. The service is designed to help companies reduce the complexity of Internet of Things systems. This way, according to Microsoft, companies that currently lack the relevant know-how in the use of cloud technologies can also benefit from IoT environments. IoT Central is based on Microsoft's Azure Cloud and is intended to facilitate the development of suitable systems and processes.
IoT Central is designed for customers who already use the platform-as-a-service Azure IoT Suite , which offers comprehensive customization and control options. The intended purpose of the new service is to reduce the barriers that continue to prevent the creation of IoT solutions in some companies. Developers will soon see whether it keeps this promise: Microsoft has announced the nation-wide launch of IoT Central for the "coming months."
