Microsoft Steps Closer to Simplify IOT with Launch of Plug and Play

The internet of things (IoT) has a broader range of applications starting from smart home to wearables to smart city. As limitless as IoT seems, there is a need to create and implement an effective IoT solution newly.  Microsoft just launched IoT Plug and Play to simplify and make it publicly available for everyone significantly. Thus the software maker is unrolling a new modelling language to infuse IoT devices with the cloud potential. The latest offering towards the MR world is designed to connect IoT devices to the cloud. It will enable developers to create new instances without writing a single line of embedded code at their side. So developers can connect IoT devices to cloud platforms without worrying about compatibility.

Thus the IoT Plug and Play function same like the technology empowering PC users to connect peripherals instantly. Microsoft has partnered with other companies like Compal, Sharp, Electron Device to introduce the first list of devices supporting IoT Plug and Play. Besides, developers can find the list of devices supporting IoT Plug and Play available in the Azure IoT Device Catalog. It would definitely help them to extend their connected device advances. Microsoft has released the preview of Azure SQL Database Edge in order to bestow developers with data security and analytics on edge. The new product is praised for offering a SQL engine that works similar to the Azure SQL Database and SQL Server.

Usually, connecting an IoT device and using it takes some work, even in the case of modern deployment tools. But the tech giant promises an IoT Plug and Play device that will exclusively simplify this process. It will also assist regarding the hardware and software configuration steps that are essential nowadays. Julia White, Azure’s Corporate Vice President, states one of the biggest concerns in developing IoT solutions is to connect millions of IoT devices. Those difficulties arise due to the heterogeneous nature of tools. It includes various form factors, processing capabilities, operational system, memory and capabilities. According to Microsoft, all those things are restricting people from adopting IoT.
