Building Connected Enterprise Over Microsoft Azure Internet of Things Suite
Medium-Large Enterprises across US, Europe & Australia want to build Systems of Intelligence around Microsoft Azure’s Internet of Things (IoT) Platform aiming to provide real-time insights for faster decision making. Enterprises want to connect Physical Assets, ERPs, Cloud and Mobile – things’ to harness its data to create strong business model. Business Enterprises who embrace IoT enjoys the benefit of three major business objectives:
- Establish Connected Enterprise to create real-time interactions with customers, field forces and physical assets
- Build transparent anytime anywhere customer services mobilizing enterprise and making it securely accessible to employees and customers alike.
- Institute Accelerated Business Outcomes by implementing real-world PaaS, Agile and Lean Practice
We recently worked with two large Microsoft Dynamics AX clients. In each case the Microsoft Azure Based IoT system deployed provided virtually infinite Scalability, Billing-on-fly for Infrastructure requirement, Advance Analytics for billions of data records created every single day and most importantly pushing infrastructure to Azure PaaS that directly integrate with physical devices (Sensors) via Cross Platform Native Mobile applications.
One of the aforementioned client’s cases is a Food Services giant based out of UK who wanted to implement IoT Solution using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Sensors. They wanted to upgrade their existing GPS enabled PDA based remote billing system to a more advanced Cross Platform Mobile application based application capable of handling remote billing as well as monitor temperature. We deployed Azures’ IoT technology suite comprising of Event Hub, Stream Analytics and MS Power BI to interface with BLEs at real-time. The BLEs monitor temperature of refrigerators mounted on their trucks’ fleet communicating data to mobile app. The app further bridged the temperature data to the Dynamics AX backend for advance analytics. Today the IoT enabled system handles 500+ BLE temperature sensor which generate 2.5-million events/day and more than 1.5 million mobile-transactions per month. The Food Corporation enjoys connected enterprise which integrates Microsoft Dynamics ERP with mobile, cloud, physical devices and analytics engine. They have reduced cost due to food spoilage to a mere 5% as opposed to 20-30% before implementing BLE sensors.
IoT enables a connected enterprise by integrating ERPs, CRMs and Supply Chain with mobile, cloud, physical devices and analytics engine. Enterprises get real-time visibility of Supply chain, enabling highly efficient operations and increased customer service quality. IoT based Advanced Analytics engine gives real-time insights from business operations, which is not possible at ‘real-time’ otherwise.
