{Thoughtful Tip} XRM and Internet of Things

Recently I have been reading on Internet of Things.

I saw a great series on Internet of Things which garnered my interest into this area.

What is it?

Internet of things


a proposed development of the Internet in which everyday objects have network connectivity, allowing them to send and receive data.


Ok, so it basically means connect the physical objects of the world to internet.

So, once you connect those things up, you can visualize them on Dashboards, report on them, do automatic processing Workflows and send notifications/etc.

Sounds similar?

Here is a use case which might get you thinking even into the direction I am headed.

A Farming research organisation wants to combine real-time sensor data from soil moisture, weather, pesticide usage, alerts and notices,

and growing conditions from farming sites into a consolidated cloud based dashboard and notification provider system in a cloud based

subscription model.

I think XRM has the right mix to do this, isn’t it?

XRM can be used to connect data from the sensors to put up into various “Sensor” Entities and then report or send out automatic notifications.

What more, this data can be leveraged via AZURE services across heterogeneous system interconnecting all information and analytics it can bring.

Hope it helps and Happy CRMing!
