Next week is the yearly Hannover Messe in Hannover, Germany.
It is the main fair for manufacturing companies and their partners and Microsoft will, of course, have a strong present.
I’m actually going this year and must say that I’m quite excited. If a reader of this blog happens to be in Hannover next week, give me a shout; could be fun to meet in real life.
Microsoft has just announced a number of solutions that will greatly simplify IoT and help businesses speed up their digital transformation.
Microsoft IoT Central, a new software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering that reduces the complexity of IoT solutions. Microsoft IoT Central is a fully managed SaaS offering for customers and partners that enables powerful IoT scenarios without requiring cloud solution expertise.
A new preconfigured solution called Connected Factory also looks very promising.
