Microsoft and ARM partner for end-to-end IoT links to Azure: Page 2 of 3

The three waves of IoT
Toolchains are at the heart of a deal between ARM and Microsoft to link IoT silicon to the cloud.
targeting Arm-based silicon and delivering a unified and streamlined AI experience for developers,” he said. “Edge AI workloads and devices need specialized silicon. We see that the adoption of AI will span multiple time-horizons realized in three progressive stages: Connected, Intelligent, and Autonomous.”

The partnership is aimed at AI-enabled devices like intelligent computer-vision-enabled cameras, connected vehicles, AI gateways and intelligent appliances across the IoT.

With more IoT devices connected to the cloud, the demand for dashboards to manage and monitor these devices remotely has become a normal course of business, he says. “As we progress further into the intelligent horizon, being ready for devices that provide a flood of insights can provide enterprises with significant economic and competitive advantages. These Intelligent devices will disrupt value chains as they become the sensors, monitors and communicators. The autonomous horizon is almost upon us and will be the most disruptive with data-driven workflows executed between machines with little to no human interaction required.”

“We are also working to address two significant challenges we hear from others in the ecosystem,” said Tanabian.

These challenges are finding the right devices to meet a customer’s needs, and finding the right audience for their devices and solutions, hence the recently launched Azure Certified Device programme. This will lead to an Azure-Ready Silicon programme, where the chips will have to have certain specification of security, connectivity and compute power.

“Our collaboration with Arm to facilitate an end-to-end AI toolchain to simplify development is an important part of this strategy, and we’re very excited to continue tackling these AI and Intelligent Edge challenges together with them,” he said.
