Control LED light using Windows 10 IoT Core and Raspberry Pi

This is the second post from the series explaining architecture of designing applications for Internet of Things, connecting devices and sensors with your line of business application like Microsoft Dynamics AX.

In the first post, we created Raspberry Pi system with Windows 10 IoT Core.

In this post, we will create a headless Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app that will control LED on our Windows IoT Device. UWP apps can run on any device running Windows including Windows Phone, phablets, tablets, laptops, PCs, compact devices such as wearables or household appliances etc.

Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi 2

This is the first post from the series covering Internet of Things, connecting your devices & sensors with the line of business applications such as Microsoft Dynamics AX.

This is not a production ready architecture but will provide high level knowledge to architects looking to integrate various devices, sensors, and other resources with Azure and Microsoft Dynamics AX.

Dynamics AX 2012 R3 Mobile Apps Configuration Using Self-Signed Certificate

In the last post we deployed Dynamics AX 2012 R2 DEMO instance on Microsoft Azure. If you don’t have it yet, I will recommend going back to the post “Use Lifecycle Services to deploy Dynamics AX on Azure” and complete the deployment.

In this post we are going to setup Dynamics AX Azure instance for Dynamics Mobile Apps using a Self-Signed Certificate. This is only for development / demo environments. In production, we will be using certificate from the Public CA like godaddy etc. Also remember we only have one DEMO VM with all AX components installed on it.

Use Lifecycle Services to deploy Dynamics AX on Azure

For sure, gone are the days when having AX environment used to take days. If you already have investment in the cloud and planning to go with Dynamics AX, choosing Microsoft Azure should be a straight forward decision. With AX going cloud and Microsoft releasing next big version of AX exclusively on Azure (on-premise coming late in 2016), should indicate where things are heading in ERP world or in general with IT. AX is now also available as an Azure Marketplace offering, where partners can release their solutions as ready to go thing. Companies are now also moving from the initial cloud hesitation and adopting the elastic technology that helps scale with rapidly growing business requirements.

That said, let's see how to deploy Dynamics AX 2012 R3 workload on Microsoft Azure in less than 60 minutes.

Step 1)
Login to Lifecycle Services using your CustomerSource or PartnerSource account.

Step 2) Create LCS Project
A project is an umbrella to manage AX implementation. Customers and Partners can invite each other to participant in the implementation process.
