Microsoft ties embedded computing to the cloud

Joab Jackson, IDG News Service | April 21, 2011
The cloud will play a pivotal role in expanding the scope of embedded computing, according to a top official from Microsoft.

Forrester Research predicts that cloud computing will become a $241 billion market by 2020, up from $40.7 billion in 2011.

Dallas noted that Microsoft is in the position to offer customers a "composite platform" that spans from the endpoint device to the back-end cloud computing infrastructure.

"We are doing this today. This is here and now," he said. "You have a cloud platform that is capable of doing the computing you need for these devices."
