When it comes to IoT adoption across industrial and commercial enterprises, we continue to see major roadblocks in the form of security concerns, systems compatibility, and the difficulty of integrating IT with operational technology.
To help address these challenges, we’re excited to announce our new “All-Azure” approach, which provides the ultimate in convenience by offering customers a private managed impCloud™ – fully hosted within Microsoft Azure – and full, high-performance integration with Azure IoT Hub.
According to Sam George, Director, Microsoft Azure IoT at Microsoft Corp., “Enterprises are looking for offerings backed by deep expertise as they adopt IoT. Electric Imp has many real-world, large scale industrial-grade IoT deployments. We’re excited that Electric Imp now integrates with Azure IoT Hub - our industrial strength, hyperscale IoT cloud gateway, providing our mutual customers with a commercial-grade combined offering.”
We built our integration to virtually eliminate the complexities of deploying, commissioning, securing, and managing IoT devices at scale for Azure IoT Hub deployments. Azure IoT Hub customers can now focus on capturing and using their valuable business data instead of worrying about overcoming the constantly-changing challenges of first mile connectivity and security.
