Building Internet of Things from what matters to you


As Microsoft IoT and Azure Partner, at Advantech we believe that Internet of Things starts with your things, where “your things” are what matter most to your business

Connecting your intelligent devices through Internet of Things allows you to collect vast amounts and types of data that you can capitalize, gather, store and analyze, driving a new level of business intelligence

Windows 10 IoT will power all your intelligent connected devices, from gateways or point-of-sale units to industrial devices

Designed to connect through Azure IoT Services, Windows 10 IoT offers enterprise-grade security along with native connectivity for machine-to-machine and machine-to-cloud scenarios, enabling the Internet of Things

Build Your Own Internet of Things with Advantech Vision

Ten reasons your business needs a strategy for IoT

1. You can start with your things

The Internet of Things doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Microsoft’s point of view is that instead of being bewildered by the huge universe of things made up of billions of assets, think about it as the Internet of Your Things

Focus on the right areas of your business process that provide quick return

Deliver better performance visibility and drive toward predictive maintenance and reducing downtime

2. Get more out of your existing assets

You don’t need to replace entire systems to get started with the Internet of Things. Start with your existing IT assets and build upon them

Add a few new assets, connect them to Microsoft Azure Internet of Things (IoT) services, and enable them to talk to each other, to your employees, and to your customers

Utilize the data those assets generate with business intelligence tools to have deeper insight into what your customers and employees want and need

3. Make small changes, see a big impact

IoT starts with identifying the one process, product line, or location that matters the most to you, then making small changes for big impact


Cut minutes from one process and reclaim thousands of labor hours across the business

4. Improve efficiency

Business needs to constantly pursue operational excellence, cut down on wasteful processes and eliminate inefficient workflows to protect margins that are already thin

With Azure IoT services, you can monitor the health of your assets and manage them remotely to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and gain control over global operations

5. Connect any asset

The rapid proliferation of connected assets and devices raises challenges due to the variety of platforms and protocols

With Azure IoT services, you can connect diverse line-of-business assets that you have today and pull in data from very large numbers of devices and other business systems

6. Enable innovation

Businesses that learn and adapt will continue to thrive. Monitor and analyze data from multiplesources in near real time to enable your business to innovate and make the most out of the situation

With machine learning capabilities from Azure IoT services, you can use modeling and historical data from your systems to successfully predict future behavior

7. Increase agility

Data insights can help you respond more quickly to competition, supply chain changes, customer demand and changing market conditions

Collecting and analyzing data can give you quick insight into developing trends and make easier to bring new products or services to market faster

With the Internet of Things, you can spend less time wondering and more time taking action

8. Build the ability to scale

New ideas are born when you work with new partners, new technologies, new assets and new data streams

You suddenly put your employees and technology to work together in ways never before imagined

New data opportunities let you focus on fine-tuning systems performance over the long term, or comparing results from different locations to identify trends in your business

The Internet of Things lets you scale from the smallest data point to global deployments

9. Transform your business

When you can produce smart connected products, you can offer value-added services and not only generate new revenue, but also strengthen customer relationships

Drive continuous improvement and innovation based on predictive analytical insights generated from in-market products, customer
interactions, social networks and other data sources that help you stay ahead of the competition

10. Choose an enterprise-proven IoT partner

Microsoft and its partner Advantech, can help you put the Internet of Your Things to work in your business today, so you can stop just running your business and start making it thrive
