They have announced an array of new capabilities built into the update especially geared toward the developer crowd. These new capabilities have been created to help accelerate facilitation of new product ideas for cloud-connected devices. Additionally, this update supports the ability to transform existing product lines to enable more intelligence at the edge. According to Microsoft, Windows 10 IoT addresses some of the most challenging aspects of IoT projects by bringing together all the pieces and technologies needed to build a full solution. They state that these new Windows 10 IoT features will enable developers to increase their productivity and bring new IoT solutions to market faster.
