Microsoft Azure cloud has been one of the most ground breaking advances the corporation has innovated in the last 10 years. The new generation of IoT solutions is expected to mould consumer behaviour, due to the integration of user friendly technology that unites everyday devices like cars, fridges, speakers and CCTV. Even data handling within traditional, heavy industries like automotive, agriculture and water processing are being disrupted as established technologies merge with cloud and IoT applications to harness the power of automation and machine learning within their core processes. Azure IoT also drastically reduces response time in mission critical scenarios. By having a closed loop of processing power around a “real world” device, customers are also reducing costs by choosing what data needs to be sent to the cloud.
Microsoft have announced that they have opened a number of UK Azure Data Centres which allow them to provide public cloud services including Office 365 to industries such as banking and local government where data needs to be hosted in the UK.
