Remember when IoT first came up? Everybody spoke about the future of IoT and how millions and millions of devices will be connected. But what is the current state of the Internet of Things out in the field? And how does it all relate to the Azure Cloud? We want to know and Michael will tell us.

The rise of IoT and smart infrastructure has led to the generation of massive amounts of complex data. Traditional time-series solutions struggle to cope with this shift, leading to a decrease in performance and an increase in cost. In this session, you will learn about the advantages of using CrateDB, how CrateDB fits in the Azure ecosystem and CrateDB on the Edge and Cloud. This will be followed up with a case study of how CrateDB ingests data from a smart factory and queries on real-world machine data. Let's put machine data to work!
