Microsoft Azure* paired with the Intel IoT® Developer Kit provides developers a full set of development tools – from the edge to the cloud.
For many data-driven businesses, it’s already challenging to keep the software, firmware, and configuration of IoT devices up-to-date. That issue is often compounded when equipment and sensors become geographically dispersed. As developers ask IoT to do more than ever before, the need for fully-integrated solutions continues to increase.
With this need in mind, Intel and Microsoft are collaborating to provide a complete set of development tools for IoT – from the edge to the cloud. With the Intel® IoT Developer Kit and Microsoft Azure*, you will have a better out-of-the-box experience, can access data easier, and rapidly move from prototype to product. Connecting the wide array of commercial devices becomes simpler, allowing access to information that was previously unavailable. Data can now be manipulated with advanced analytics, and utilized in a number of ways.
Open to All Developers
The design of IoT should be on your terms. With use of the Intel IoT Developer Kit in conjunction with Microsoft Azure, you are in control of your design. Whether you specialize in transportation or retail, Microsoft Azure and the Intel IoT Developer Kit help you rapidly prototype your project by enabling developers to use a variety of programming languages, sensor libraries, and devices in the same ecosystem.
Rapid Prototyping to Product
A difficult hurdle for developers to overcome is the integration of devices in a commercial atmosphere. It is possible to hook up more equipment and drive data to the cloud easier than ever before using an Intel® NUC and Microsoft Azure. This integration allows you to view, manage and deliver near real-time data, allowing you to quickly move from prototype to product, as well as send data to your customers. By using Microsoft Azure services through an Intel® IoT Gateway, you can include stream analytics, machine learning and even notification hubs to trigger specific outcomes.
Best Developer Experience
Without fully-integrated IoT tools, the ability to manage devices and data requires individual connections, from the development platform to the device itself. With use of an Intel IoT Gateway and Microsoft Azure, you can centrally manage many devices, resulting in a simplified deployment methodology that saves time and money.
There is no longer a need to develop on a single platform or language, maintain device connections separately or worry about cross-platform compatibility. Using the resources of Microsoft Azure and the Intel® IoT Developer Program smooths out multi-language issues, making the developer experience simple and easy.
Code Samples to Get Started
Not only can you experiment with the great starter project code, you can also utilize the code basics within your own innovations. With access to reliable code, you will have one less worry, allowing you to focus upon the big picture.
Fast-Track your Project
Versatile and performance optimized, Intel® IoT Developer Kits, which include Intel® Edison board and Intel IoT Gateway technologies, are supported by a variety of programming environments, tools and security options.
Take the difficulty out of managing IoT by using Microsoft Azure with Intel® IoT Technology, allowing you to innovate and rapidly move from prototype to product. You can find a demonstration of a rapid path-to-product IoT solution for retail using cloud data analytics on the Intel Software Developer Zone for IoT along with numerous other code samples and tutorials.
