Full report (Client-only access): 2021 IoT Edge ScoreCard
Edge platforms continue to play a vital role in the IoT ecosystem. Businesses deploying IoT or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) edge solutions recognize that many optimally designed IoT solutions, especially those in the industrial vertical, take advantage of one or multiple edge components. In fact, MachNation research suggests that most IoT solutions in verticals such as manufacturing, commercial transportation, building automation, and logistics will be required to leverage edge computing in order to meet business and operational requirements.
For the fourth year, MachNation has published its IoT Edge ScoreCard to aid enterprise, system integrator (SI), and service provider (SP) buyers in their research processes and to provide guidelines for the most important edge characteristics. We have conducted these analyses due to the great diversity in the quality of edge platforms and the technological heritage of the various platform vendors.
MachNation’s 2021 IoT Edge ScoreCard includes the following vendors (listed alphabetically): ADLINK, Amazon, Crosser, Eurotech, Foundries.io, HPE, L&T Technology Services, Litmus Automation, Microsoft, Pelion, Siemens, and Software AG.
