Microsoft has announced cross-Azure IoT collaboration. This should enable customers to make better use of location and spatial intelligence functions.

From now on, Azure IOT users can use Azure Maps spatial analytics (spatial analysis). In fact, this means obtaining data about the location of IoT-‘things’. In other words, all devices that are integrated into the IoT. Users now know not only what is happening, but also where something is happening. As Azure Maps provides users with geographical information, the geographical distribution of IoT data becomes known. The spatial intelligence system uses IoT messaging. This is the exchange of information between IoT hardware (the ‘things’) and the central system. This allows companies to receive spatial information, but also to send information if such action is needed.

Respond immediately to problems or changes

Through IoT messaging not only information is received that needs to be acted on, but also the location where this action is needed. This enables companies to monitor their capital in the IoT about Azure Maps, which creates a constant spatial awareness. Microsoft gives the example of a truck that needs to make a delivery via a certain route. If the truck has a sensor connected to the IoT, the location of the vehicle is continuously known. If there is a deviation from the route, users can monitor it in real time and see if something has gone wrong. Then the necessary actions can be taken immediately, instead of having to solve problems afterwards.
