The Leading Internet of Things Platform
Use IoT to turn your data into insights and insights into action
The Azure Internet of Things (IoT) is a collection of Microsoft-managed cloud services that connect, monitor, and control billions of IoT assets. In simple terms, IoT is your equipment, machines, products, and devices connected to the cloud and outfitted to collect and securely transmit data. Azure Internet of Things (IoT) also includes security and operating systems for devices and equipment and data and analytics that help businesses build, deploy, and manage IoT applications.
You may be asking, though, how can Azure IoT help my business? In short, IoT lets you solve business problems using your data. The Internet of Things isn’t just about connected devices—it’s about the information those devices collect and the powerful, immediate insights you can garner from that information. Use these insights to transform your business and lower costs through improvements like reduced waste, streamlined operational and mechanical processes, or expansion into new lines of business that are only possible with reliable real-time data.
Velosio has deep expertise in crafting and supporting Azure IoT solutions. Accelerate your time to market by starting your IoT project on the right path.
How Azure IoT Can Help Your Organization
Monitor almost any asset—including heavy machinery, vehicles, and even livestock—almost anywhere, either continuously or at regular intervals. Know where your resources are at any given moment—down to which vehicle they’re on—for improved field service, stronger security, and increased employee safety.
Predictive maintenance incorporates machine learning software that analyzes data to predict outcomes and automate actions. Predictive capabilities allow service providers to move beyond the traditional reactive and scheduled maintenance business model and use their data to identify issues before they become critical. This allows technicians to intervene before customers even realize there’s a problem.
This IoT scenario is focused on monitoring your buildings, infrastructure, and other spaces, allowing you to improve energy efficiency, space utilization, productivity, and safety using the data you collect.
Many manufacturing processes share a common pathway from raw materials to finished products. With IoT, it’s possible to learn from your own systems and find new ways to manage your processes and product quality with data from your devices and sensors.
Connected products have smart, connective components that exchange data between the product and its user, manufacturer, or environment. Related IoT solutions may help you build smart factories with new functionality, greater reliability, and higher product utilization.
