Article: A Software Strategy for Intelligent Systems

Version 2

    The abundance of connected devices has created a paradox: The data generated by these devices offers virtually unlimited opportunities, but the volume of data can be overwhelming. How can we gather and analyze this data as fast as we create it?


    The answer lies in intelligent systems, which transform three key network touchpoints: 1) edge devices (i.e., embedded systems); 2) back-end servers (or the cloud); and, 3) the way connections are made between elements in the system. To learn about this transformation and how you can apply it to your designs, check out Microsoft’s Embedded Innovator article.



    Intelligent systems are evolving in stages.
