The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of physical objects that can communicate and interact with the modern enterprise. It allows your businesses to learn key information about infrastructure, valuable assets, manufactured products, and more. With these new streams of data, you can unlock actionable intelligence to drive revenue growth, cut costs, and modernize your business.

Start your IoT Journey

with the Right Partner

Identifying business objectives is the first step in realizing IoT value. Cloud 9’s team of experts can align and implement the right IoT solutions to maximize the impact on your organization. You’ll be in control – collecting new data, surfacing actionable insights, and setting your enterprise on the road to digital evolution.

Experience the Power of Connected Devices

The IoT enables unparalleled data enablement and insights, evolving your enterprise.

Utilities use smart sensors to remotely monitor readings, eliminate manual inspections and ensure service across various location.

Hospitals leverage wearable devices to monitor patient activity and prescribe the right treatments.

Retailers use sensor-equipped trucks to monitor shipments, track vendors, and avoid supply chain bottlenecks.

Maximize the Value of Untapped Data

With the new data from connected devices, you understand exactly what’s happening at every corner of your enterprise at all times. You can respond to alarms and alerts, address issues before they become problems, and use analytics and machine learning to take preventative actions that increase reliability and reduce downtime.

Visualize Information and Integrate with Business Processes

Intuitive dashboards allow you to monitor assets and performance KPIs across a landscape of devices. Key people can access the information they need to act on in real time, and business processes can be automated by integrating IoT data with systems such as ERP and CRM. If an asset goes down, a service ticket can be automatically created, the customer notified via CRM, and a technician can be deployed to fix the issue immediately.

Azure IoT Hub

Connect, monitor, and manage billions of IoT assets.  Establish bi-directional communication with billions of IoT devices.  Authenticate per device for security-enhanced IoT solutions.  Register devices at scale with IoT Hub Device Provisioning Service.  Manage your IoT devices at scale with device management.  Extend the power of the cloud to your edge device.

Azure IoT Central

Experience the simplicity of SaaS for IoT (Internet of Things), with no cloud expertise required—Azure IoT Central is a fully managed global IoT SaaS (software-as-a-service) solution that makes it easy to connect, monitor, and manage your IoT assets at scale.   Bring your connected products to market faster while staying focused on your customers.

A well-planned proof-of-concept (POC) demonstrates the value of your IoT solution before implementing a full-stage rollout. With the right design, you can get results to executive sponsors quickly and iterate on a simple scale, maximizing control of your solution and minimizing the consequences of short-term failures.

The IoT POC engagement delivers a real-world IoT solution on Microsoft’s Azure Platform. Taking a specific customer business challenge, organizations will have an opportunity to see how they can introduce improved functionality, better analytics and true scalability to their existing IoT investments. The Cloud 9 team will help translate a specific technical scenario to an Azure IoT solution and demonstrate key functionality across the platform.

Take real action on your business visions, by testing and refining the most important characteristics of your IoT solution with a Proof-of-Concept by partnering with Cloud 9.
