The announcement of Cisco’s partnership with Microsoft through the collaboration, Azure IoT Suite will be able to connect to Cisco Fog deployments, which Cisco hopes will give its customers added value through an integrated solution.

“Microsoft thinks there is a natural balance between the cloud and the edge in IoT,” Sam George, partner director, Azure Internet of Things, writes in a blog post here.

“Cloud is a natural place to manage IoT devices, to collect data from them, gain insights using analytics and then operationalize those insights. Edge is a natural place to collect, optimize and react to data with low latency based on the insights generated in the cloud. In this way, cloud and edge work together to help IoT reach its full potential.”

“We believe IoT, Cloud and IoT Edge will continue to play a critical role in digital transformation. We’re excited to extend our work with Cisco and bring the Value of Microsoft’s IoT technologies and solutions to even more customers,” George adds.
