Microsoft unleashes Windows 10 IoT Core Services

Following an unveiling at Computex last month, Microsoft has announced it's unleashing Windows 10 IoT Core Services into public preview.

IoT Core Services enables solutions running on Windows 10 IoT Core to be commercialised and companies to create long-term business models for ongoing value.

One of the most important components of the service is the Device Update Center, where an overview of all devices can be seen and updates scheduled for when appropriate. All updates are delivered using the same CDN...

Close to the edge: How to realise the benefits of edge computing for IIoT

You may well have heard of the ‘intelligent edge’, as Microsoft puts it – the future of computing, on multiple devices, the blurring of the physical and virtual worlds, driven by huge amounts of data, as well as artificial intelligence and machine learning. But how can organisations make the most of this opportunity?

A new whitepaper from the Industrial Internet Consortium aims to shed some light on this process and how to architect an edge computing implementation.

It is important to note...

Why slow and steady is the key to winning the IoT race

It has become a no-brainer for organisations to jump on the Internet of Things (IoT) bandwagon. With the amount of data flowing between internet-connected devices, it is vital that organisations are able to implement an effective IoT strategy in order to remain competitive. Yet, as companies race to adopt this technology, it is no secret that many IoT projects are struggling to get off the ground.

In fact, research from Cisco highlights that as many as...

Sense and sensor ability: How AI and connectivity will help each other grow

Connected devices are getting smaller, cheaper, and more specialised. While connected systems as a whole are getting more intelligent, the actual processing power of these devices is not expanding at the same rate - opening up a host of issues for enterprises wanting to enter the IoT, or expand their current IoT fleet.

The development of new network technologies will require a new way of processing data from a huge range of sources, and communication between multiple systems (even in one enterprise) will soon...
