With "Intelligent System" Microsoft identifies an architectural paradigm of IoT that involves the convergence of several technologies used to make the "system". In particular, Microsoft aims to leverage on the convergence between mobile and embedded devices with cloud technology. The aim is to create an ecosystem where both datasources (eg embedded systems) and the centralized infrastructure are managed organically to store, process and service data and to generate value from the data itself. With the use of Windows Embedded and Windows Azure platforms will be presented two case studies with solutions in the domains of the smart energy and smart city.
