IoT Edger: ready to make your Azure IoT implementations successful

From the first moment Microsoft introduced IoT in Azure, Sander has worked with all the features. He knows how to start with Azure IoT proof of concept projects, proof of value projects, pilots, and (pre) production. Sander specializes in bringing telemetry from the IO layer (eg. PLCs, sensors) to the cloud using edge technology. If needed, data is filtered, aggregated, enriched, or prioritized. Both can be done either in the cloud or on the edge. This results in a practical and proven way of working which gives the most insights and results in implementing IoT.

If you need help during any stage of your IoT project, Sander can help you and your team to succeed.
