Producing a high yield and better quality of life


Sustainable energy and digital transformation can combine to provide new avenues to success and increase convenience for people in isolated areas. This is especially true in places without a modern electrical infrastructure where residents rely on labor-intensive tasks. Innovative solutions can help them automate simple tasks, often making the difference between mere survival and prosperity. In many parts of Africa, for example, farmers lack access to running water. Instead they rely on wells to sustain their families, water their crops, and support their livestock.

In this video, you’ll see how Monica, an independent farmer in Kenya, increased her yields and quality of life by implementing a solar-powered irrigation system based on Microsoft Azure IoT.

The Network in 2020: Faster, Closer, Smarter

It’s no secret that more people, more than ever, are more digitally connected. The underlying network needed to support this connectivity must be faster, closer, and smarter, according to Forbes contributor Steve Alexander.

“On-demand content, bandwidth-hungry mobile apps, IoT devices, and new cloud-based applications are driving the need for more bandwidth and network capacity,” Alexander writes. He reminds us that “fast ethernet” used to be the descriptive phrase for the network edge, and that over time we have quickly increased connectivity times—because users’ needs demand it. This is no exception. “Since its inception, the internet has a been a catalyst for service providers to facilitate faster connectivity, an imperative that will increase over time,” states Alexander.
