Azure IoT is a good product but since our whole suite of tech is now set up in AWS (ec2, s3, sagemaker, cloud formation, etc.), we wanted something that could quickly adapt to our environments. Learning a new tech for IoT was simply a bottleneck that we wanted to avoid at this point.

AWS iot core is a good starting point which can be utilized for a variety of enterprise solutions. Barrier to entry to experiment and try AWS iot core is less and AWS eco-system providers ensure that even startups can try a variety of solutions and build key skills and capabilities using the iot stack. In case of Azure, they definitely have a very good iot stack but learning azure and the iot eco-system seems like an eco-system for established players. It requires a startup to dedicate considerable developer hours to learn and appreciate the stack. Further, opportunities to get clients in iot domain is not easy in both these eco-systems at this juncture :)

The customer was native in AWS and has found AWS offers more related services to what they were looking for. Additionally, the customer also wants the services able to connect to multiple downstream analytics such as AI/ML services. This allows them to generate more by-product services such as predictive maintenance analytics, etc.

Azure IoT service provides more or less the same services as compared to AWS IoT core, however the costing of AWS lead us to continued usage of IoT core over Azure IoT services.
Also, considering our existing technology stack is on AWS, it was a natural selection for better integration and ease of use.

It turns out that AWS IoT Core is the most mature solution on the market with the best variety of integration tools available. On the downside, it is not the cheapest platform existing out there. Amazon IoT Core is easy to start and set up, and our prior engagement with Amazon for AWS was a factor to go with AWS IoT Core. Other products are also good, but Amazon IoT Core has met all of our expectations. We prefer Amazon storage and content delivery S3 services rather than Microsoft Blob Storage.

For our use case, we ended up with AWS because the human resources that were planning to be resourced on this particular project happened to have prior familiarity with the AWS ecosystem. The conversation became can we justify continuing with this ecosystem rather than pivoting to a different one - such as GCP or Azure. We decided that the functionality offered by AWS was sufficient for our use case. I think that it is often underestimated how important it is to have prior familiarity with a cloud ecosystem when evaluating vendors.

Before deciding on which IoT platform to choose we have executed an extensive research to identify the best option for needs. It turns out that AWS IoT Core is the most mature solution on the market with the best variety of integration tools available. On the downside it is not the cheapest platform existing out there.

We have checked other IoT platforms such as IBM Watson IoT and Microsoft Azure IoT, but Amazon IoT Core seems reasonable in terms of pricing and overall functionalities. Amazon IoT Core is easy to start and set up and our prior engagement with Amazon for AWS was a factor to go with AWX IoT Core. Other products are also good, but Amazon IoT Core has met all of our expectations. Its strong user community, affinity towards startups, and tech support are really great.

AWS IoT Core is faster, easier, cheaper, and enjoyed by our employees more than Microsoft Azure. We selected AWS IoT because we saw an advertisement for it and have used it ever since. We will continue to use it as long as it is around or until we find one that is better.

We prefer Amazon storage and content delivery S3 services rather than Microsoft Blob Storage. Also, AWS IoT Core seems to be the cheaper alternative compared to Azure IoT.
