The major companies are seeking early entry into competition for future technologies, especially IoT, which has become a key pillar in the technology world. The latest news was Microsoft's announcement of its $ 5 billion investment in research, products, and Internet of Things.
Company officials said they plan to invest the amount over the next four years. The announcement came a week after the company announced the support of the SmartCloud.
The company did not disclose the amount of investment in the technology so far, but Julia White, vice president of Microsoft, said that the company plans to continue using technology in the operating systems and cloud services to control and manage for different statistics of technology.
Microsoft has seen technology as an assistant in driving its business over the past several years. At last year's developers' conference, Microsoft made "On The Edge" one of its most important services, the idea of enabling data processing power for all services on the Web.
Microsoft already has some products and services that already run the IoT technology. The company offers two different types of IoT on Windows 10, the first is Azure IoT Central, which offers Internet as a service, and the second is Azure IoT Hub, which will receive different updates this week.
