Microsoft Wants Azure Platform to Become “the” IoT Cloud

Microsoft Wants Azure Platform to Become “the” IoT Cloud

…there is an obvious need for one company to step up and become the unified infrastructure on which built world IoT can connect and integrate. Microsoft thinks they can be that company…

Sensative’s view:

Is this really what the world and the society want? Having all your data managed and controlled by a monopoly company? What will that mean for competition, innovation, cost, and security? Microsoft is an American company under US jurisdiction and bound by the Cloud Act.

This is very much the same problem as the Google Sidewalk Labs project in Toronto. The citizens of Toronto are not to keen on letting Google own their IoT data too.

The way forward is Open Source and open standards, not a monopoly. That is why FIWARE is so essential.
