When you think of IoT, one of the most obvious use cases is manufacturing. There’s a good reason for it – IoT can make manufacturing more efficient and safer. This post explores why IoT is a natural fit for manufacturing. Moreover, we’ll discuss what you can expect in the future.
Azure IoT Edge is an Internet of Things (IoT) service that builds on top of Azure IoT Hub. This service is meant for organizations who want to analyze data on devices “on the edge” vs “in the cloud”.
In 2014, Satya Nadella made his first public appearance as the CEO of Microsoft, succeeding Steve Ballmer at the helm and announcing a course shift for the tech giant.

Writer Napoleon Hill once said, “Action is the real measure of intelligence.” That statement is something a catch-42, though; you can’t take action if you don’t have intelligence, but what if you don’t have the intelligence in the first place?
The Internet of Things can best be described as a group of network-enabled technologies which allow devices such as mobile phones, wearables and computers to communicate, interact with each other and act autonomously based on preconfigured parameters. IoT is profoundly changing the way we perceive and use information and it’s already beginning to play a role in different aspects of our lives.
The industrial internet of things, or IIoT, is defined as “machines, computers and people enabling intelligent industrial operations using advanced data analytics for transformational business outcomes”. We are now in the middle of the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0 where smart, connected devices and technologies are transforming how products and equipment are designed, manufactured, maintained and ultimately used.
No one wants to deal with a recall. They’re costly, messy, and they ruin reputations. Yet, quality control remains a challenge for many organizations. Technology can help improve quality control. Specifically, the Internet of Things can transform this vital corporate function. Read on to learn how you can use IoT to boost your quality control efforts.
Integration of digital technologies into manufacturing processes is ushering in an age of autonomous factory equipment capable of making quick decisions based on real time information from the plant floor.
The supply chain is as old as time itself; for as long as humans have been consuming goods, goods have needed to get from point A to point B. What also holds true is that as long as there’s been a supply chain, humans have sought to improve it.
IoT in the Warehouse: It’s Present and Future When you think about warehousing, you most likely associate it with manual labor. You probably imagine pickers…
