Microsoft is simplifying IoT through the use of the Azure IoT Suite and the following components:
- Azure IoT Hub – the gateway that allows you to ingest data
- Azure Time Series Insights – this enables you to graphically analyze and explore data points
- Microsoft IoT Central; a fully managed IoT SaaS
- Azure IoT Edge; a virtual representation of your IoT device that can download code to a physical device and have it execute locally.
