A recent press release reports, “The Qt Company today announced that it has integrated its Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) application framework with Microsoft Azure for the industrial automation market. By integrating Qt’s cross-platform framework, user interface (UI) development tools and machine-to-machine communication libraries with Azure, Qt will provide HW and OS independent access between the cloud and edge devices in manufacturing, retail, transport, logistics, smart cities and more. Earlier this year, Gartner, Inc. predicted the worldwide public cloud services market will grow 18 percent in 2017 to $246.8 billion, up from $209.2 billion in 2016. Furthermore, McKinsey & Company found that the potential value that could be unlocked with IoT applications in factory settings – which represent a significant portion of the IIoT – could be as much as $3.7 trillion in 2025, which is approximately one-third of all potential economic value of the IoT estimated by McKinsey.”

The release goes on, “Along with the rapid growth of cloud computing, organizations in the industrial automation sector are starting to realize the importance of edge computing, which enables users to gather analytics and data from edge devices. Based on the new Qt integration with Azure IoT Hub, an industrial automation device running on Windows 10 IoT Core or Linux can now feature applications designed by the Qt framework and can connect directly to Azure, providing real-time data for future analysis.”
