Microsoft today announced the general availability of Azure IoT Edge and new Azure Data Factory (ADF V2) features.
Azure IoT Edge is an IoT service built on top of IoT Hub that is meant for customers who want to analyze data on edge devices, instead of in the cloud. By moving parts of your workload to the edge, your devices can spend less time sending messages to the cloud and react more quickly to changes in status. Microsoft also announced several new capabilities for Azure IoT Edge to make it easy to develop and deploy intelligence to the edge. As announced before, Microsoft has today open-sourced the Azure IoT Edge runtime and it is available on GitHub.
The new Azure Data Factory (ADF V2) comes with a new browser-based user interface to accelerate your time to production by building and scheduling your data pipelines using drag and drop. You can also manage and monitor the health of your data integration projects, the date can be in either cloud or on-premises. ADF V2 now supports 70 data source connectors and allows you to dispatch data transformation jobs to transform raw data into processed data. This data can be then used by business analysts using their favorite BI tools or custom applications.
