Overall Satisfaction with Azure IoT

Azure IoT is being used as a central message, OTA, command and control platform for multiple connected devices hosted in different locations across the globe, including China. It acts as a distributed solution managing multiple use cases, interacting with third party APIs, mobile apps (20+) and consumers. Azure IoT also provides end to end security and ability to process billions of messages per second with great performance.
  • Very Strong Security Standards.
  • Good documentation and easy to implement.
  • Hardware and embedded integration could improve or be at parity with competitor.
  • Pricing model not as flexible as competitor.
  • Drove down our TCO by double digit percentage.
  • Easy to find professionals who understand the platform.
Very comparable to the AWS offer, although brings additional security. Far ahead the rest of the industry, with end to end architecture and feature-set. Geo availability is a plus as well. Pricing could be more flexible or easy to understand - too many different components to consider making it hard to understand - but overall is not expensive.
Azure IoT support professionals are strong, and always provide timely responses. Vast documentation and examples are available, plus a network of professionals in the market. It's very comparable to the main competitor offer, and easily integrated into the main Azure product offer. Azure IoT is not a new solution, so it is very mature and support can easily address any day to day or architectural concern you have.
