The Internet of Things Partner of the Year Award recognizes partners that have designed, developed, and deployed Internet of Things (IoT) solutions built on Microsoft's intelligent cloud and intelligent edge offerings such as Azure IoT Hub, Azure Cognitive Services, and Azure IoT Edge. IoT solutions harness signals and untapped data from a wide range of devices - unlocking powerful insights and enabling businesses to act on that data.

Readiness Systems engaged Marquam to help develop AED Sentinel™, the first and only universal remote AED monitoring system. The IoT solution uses internet-connected optical visual status indicator monitoring sensors, along with an associated software platform and an intuitive user dashboard for monitoring, alerts and reporting. With millions of AEDs already deployed in the field, Azure's IoT Suite addressed the critical business need to provision and enable new cameras with non-technical installers.
