Azure Industrial IoT

Build open, interoperable IoT solutions that secure and modernize industrial systems for Industry 4.0 services.

Accelerate your path to Industry 4.0

Find or build IoT solutions to unite new or legacy machines and connect suppliers, customers, and a distributed workforce within a global ecosystem. Azure Industrial IoT is built around the principle that new solutions and data must interoperate through industry standards and prevent vendor lock-in. Achieve results at scale through faster discovery of assets, best-in-class global support, and years of security expertise built from the chip to the cloud.
