Windows 10 IoT provides a consistent user experience across industry devices as it scales from an ATM to a handheld to a maker board.Technology is transforming the way we work, play, and live in a positive way: services in the Cloud provide almost limitless compute power and networks provide nearly ubiquitous and instant access to these services. Devices are getting smarter, more connected, and central to all this transformation. The Internet of Things (IoT) provides a major opportunity for device manufacturers to transform their businesses as well by creating new device types and formats, new revenue streams through services, and by differentiating their offerings through innovation.
With this opportunity comes challenges as well: device developers must innovate in functionality and servicing models in order to stay competitive; new device form-factors, multiple development platforms, and disparate tools increase complexity; and with exponential growth in the number of things connected to the internet, security challenges are paramount.
