Earlier this year, Microsoft first announced Microsoft IoT central, a new end-to-end IoT software as a service (SaaS) solution in the cloud that helps customers build, use, and maintain internet connected products. Today, Microsoft announced the public preview of IoT Central. Microsoft IoT Central enables companies to build production-grade IoT apps in hours—without having to manage all the necessary back-end infrastructure or learn new skills.
- Avoid the complexities of building and managing IoT solutions with an end-to-end IoT SaaS solution that’s easy to use and adapts to your needs and processes.
- Create new revenue opportunities and accelerate innovation through smarter products—helping you better engage customers by understanding their real needs.
- Connect your products using industry-leading technology and the enterprise-grade security features you need to stay in control of your IoT data.
Microsoft already has an IoT solution called Azure IoT Suite which is a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution. Microsoft will be offering both the IoT solutions to cater the needs of different customers. While Azure IoT Suite enables deep customization and full control, the new Microsoft IoT central lower the barriers to creating IoT solutions.
