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 and the Microsoft Product teams. He knows how to start with Azure IoT proof of concepts, proof of value projects, pilots, and (pre) production.

Sander specializes in bringing telemetry from the IO layer (eg. PLCs, sensors) to the cloud using IoT (edge) technology. If needed, data is filtered, aggregated, enriched, or prioritized in-flight. 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.

The value is brough to you using queryable data in cold storage or time-series databases, dashboarding like Grafana, or rule-based decision-making using Digital Twins. Sander brings the Industrial Metaverse to you.

If you need help during any of these stages of your IoT project, troubleshooting or an independent health check of your project, Sander can help you and your team to succeed.
