Azure IoT Hub

Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Azure IoT Hub

Azure IoT Hub is used by several clients within my organization, the latest project is about telemetry data from sensors installed in cars allowing easy connection and registration at the scale of new sensors, managing them, and redirecting the data to other services of the business workflow. The Microsoft Azure IoT Hub is very intuitive and easy to use, this is why is our to-go service for handling several IoT devices.
  • Massive registration and deployment of new devices.
  • Easy integration with other Azure services.
  • Handling security if devices.
  • It's usually more expensive than its competitors.
  • More restrictions and limitations for registering IoT Devices.
  • Documentation is confusing, compared to AWS IoT.
  • Device management.
  • IoT Hub SDK.
  • Security
  • Message routing.
  • Azure is the main partner of my organization, so it's the to-go platform, having a positive impact on the ROI.
I preferred AWS because it's faster to learn while more complex on Azure, either way, Azure is very complete and professional, although more expensive sometimes.

Do you think Microsoft Azure IoT Hub delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Microsoft Azure IoT Hub's feature set?


Did Microsoft Azure IoT Hub live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Microsoft Azure IoT Hub go as expected?


Would you buy Microsoft Azure IoT Hub again?


I would recommend Azure IoT Hub for the energy industry and for massive scaling, maintaining security, and easy management of devices. It could be less suited from my point of view to small IoT projects due to the steeper learning curve.
