Microsoft’s IoT-Powered Intelligent Retail Showcase in ‘IoT in Action New York’

Microsoft will have a showcase of IoT-powered intelligent retail on January 13, 2020 in New York.

The retail industry is on the brink of a new wave of digital transformation, powered by breakthroughs in IoT, AI and cloud platforms.

Retailers are more than just physical stores. They are becoming the bridge that digitally connects consumers with seamless, personalized shopping experiences.

IoT in Action New York is expected one of the largest retail events of the year and experience firsthand what it means to leverage IoT technology platforms to drive shopping analytics, smart experiences, and store efficiencies.

Attendees can network directly with the companies discussing their experiences on stage and see how they can partner together to transform the retail space.

Microsoft will conduct live partner interviews and showcase them throughout the event. From leveraging digital twins to designing and implementing custom retail solutions – the lessons shared around architecting on the intelligent edge will change how you approach retail forever.

The question we will strive to answer at this year’s IoT in Action event is how to implement this technology in a scalable, manageable, and secure way.

Microsoft released a few things to look forward to:
