Today I attended a meetup about strategic MS's Azure Hubs. The MS model for Azure is getting complex but powerful. It seems that MS plan is to offer large capabilities within strategically defined hubs of services oriented to an ecosystem of specific products.
One of those hubs is Events: a telemetry oriented hub for supporting devices remotely. The other one is Analytics & IoT, which is about taking data from the device and analyse it.
When used together the possibilities are huge. With one, the data is captured through remote systems. With the other one, the data is analysed. The data could be used for a particular action:
The impacts, and in particular the social impacts, could be huge, with advantages and disadvantages. Eg. again, this would replace the need of specialists to monitor on those devices, or at least would encourage remote centralisation, rendering on-site human resources less relevant.
The impact of devices controlling themselves could have strong benefits, the human resource is less and less needed under this kind of society (if it realise and become sustainable). Here a impressive video about what the use of this devices for IoT could do. When watching, think about what for technician you will need to carry out the task. Good? Bad? Just different? And the payroll, how the company will consider the new personnel?
