Nadella at the helm as Microsoft “empowers” business transformation

“Businesses are hungry to seize new opportunities using technologies like machine learning and predictive analytics."

Microsoft has announced the availability of new products and services designed to enable people and organisations to put data to work, driving better results for business of all sizes.

The announcements were made at Convergence 2015, Microsoft’s annual conference for its business customers.

“Businesses are hungry to seize new opportunities using technologies like machine learning and predictive analytics,” says Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft.

“Only when businesses create a culture that empowers everyone to have access to data and insight that drive action will they be positioned to truly transform.”

Nadella demonstrated products and services built by Microsoft across a range of industries, organisations and individuals to drive insight and action from their data.

Tools for industries

Microsoft Azure IoT Suite

Nadella says Microsoft Azure IoT Suite is an “integrated offering” that takes advantage of all the relevant Azure capabilities, simplified billing and easy provisioning to help businesses connect, manage and analyse all of their “things.”

Available in preview later this year, Nadella says this new offering will provide businesses with finished applications targeting common Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios — such as remote monitoring, asset management and predictive maintenance — to simplify deployment and provide the ability to scale their solution to millions of “things” over time.

Currently in preview, Azure Stream Analytics will be generally available next month as part of Azure IoT or as a standalone service.

Windows 10 for Internet of Things

Microsoft announced that Windows 10 will provide versions of Windows for a “diverse set of IoT devices”, under the Windows 10 IoT moniker.

Windows 10 IoT will offer one Windows platform with universal applications and driver models that will span a wide range of devices, from low-footprint controllers such as IoT gateways to powerful devices such as ATMs and industrial robotics.

Windows 10 IoT will also bring enterprise-grade security from the device to the cloud and native connectivity for machine-to-machine and machine-to-cloud scenarios with Azure IoT services.
