Simplifying IoT with Cloud and Edge

IoT is a business revolution enabled by technology. Organizations are already seeing significant monetary benefits from insights they gain by connecting their assets to an IoT platform. However the barrier to entry for Iot applications is still very high. Cloud IoT platforms have to make it extremely easy to build a complete solution out of a set of core components. In this talk we will go over some of the challenges and how platform vendors like Microsoft are simplifying IoT. Presentation
