In late 2014, MachNation published the Application Platform ScoreCard. This highly sought-after document generated a lot of interest from our partners and Application Enablement Platform (AEP) vendors alike. Over the next several weeks, we will be publishing ScoreCard addenda to cover additional AEP platforms not included in our original document.
Today, our partners may access an addendum on MachineShop AEP. Boston-based MachineShop brings an API-centric approach to enterprise IoT application enablement. The platform consists of a large set of microservices spanning data, compute, and management. The API-driven approach enables MachineShop to provide a highly horizontal set of application enablement services for IoT. MachineShop’s provides services-oriented IoT middleware that sits strictly below the application layer of the IoT technology stack.
In our research, we evaluate both strengths of the platform as well as considerations that savvy enterprises building IoT solutions or seeking partnerships ought to consider. The publication is available in our MachNation partner area.
