Organizations need intelligent systems based on intelligent devices. The devices enable informed decision making at the point of impact, and they connect to back-end systems for further processing and analysis. Such systems can help organizations predict patterns and more quickly spot trends, allowing them to become proactive, rather than reactive to market conditions. This paper discusses the growing adoption of intelligent systems and the role Microsoft, through its Windows Embedded, Windows Azure, and other technologies, can play in developing these systems.
