Connected campus and school experiences

Microsoft Azure IoT Services can help you bring the Internet of Your Things to life, and turn your campus into a fully connected one.

Today’s campuses are evolving, but one thing remains the same: the importance of the campus experience.

Your students depend on technology to live, work and play. As administrators, you want to provide the best — after all, the best tools attract the best applicants. At the same time, you need your school operations to run as efficiently as possible.

We know change isn’t easy. But thanks to the Internet of Things, you’re probably closer than you think. It starts with realizing the potential of the Internet of Your Things — the infrastructure, devices and data already in place in your school.
