The Internet of Things is already a huge deal and it’s only going to get bigger. There are far more devices connected to the internet than there are people in the world and the number is projected to grow dramatically in coming years.
Whether you’re an individual hobbyist or an enterprise developer, there’s a really good chance that you’ll find need for a service running in the cloud to listen to the devices in your IoT solution, facilitate communication, and even communicate back to the devices telling them how to behave.
That’s why there’s Azure IoT. Azure IoT includes the dedicated IoT Hub service, IoT solution templates called IoT Suite, as well as many other general services for processing IoT data and turning them into real business insight. Azure IoT Hub is extremely capable, extremely adaptable, and best of all it’s not too difficult a concept for developers to learn.
