The Windows universe is in motion and migrating toward the cloud
The Microsoft-dominated data centers moved to the cloud more slowly than the aggressive staffs in big IT departments and the independent Linux programmers, who were pioneers and innovators. But the Windows universe is now in motion and it many of its representatives are going to end up on Azure. Microsoft keeps making it easier for them So an IoT partnership that can target Windows devices, among others, makes a lot of sense.

Moving to Azure
It's not surprising that companies the size of GE are bringing some of their tools to Azure, the platform is solid and more of the Microsoft tool set is integrated into Azure every time I turn around.  What I wonder is if this will be how the top tier in the cloud providers start to separate themselves from the crowd.  All of the big players have some very useful tools but if they start packaging systems developed outside of their wall for use inside their cloud offerings I can see that as a driver to choose one provider of another.
