By Ken Briodagh February 19, 2019

MachNation recently announced the availability of its IoT Edge ScoreCard for 2019, a detailed rating of 17 Internet of Things (IoT) edge platform vendors.

“MachNation's second annual IoT Edge ScoreCard is the industry's most thorough review of IoT edge platforms,” said Steve Hilton, president and analyst, MachNation. “Enterprises must understand these platforms' strengths and weaknesses, because we estimate that more than 75 percent of all industrial IoT deployments use edge capabilities.”

MachNation's ScoreCard contains several graphics to help clarify the strengths of IoT edge platform vendors' solutions. The ScoreCard ranks vendors using 17 detailed technical and business criteria.

“Based on customer demand, we've included summary figures in this year's ScoreCard describing vendors' primary edge capabilities including edge visualization, edge analytics, edge data processing, edge data storage, hypervisor/OS, edge management, and edge hardware,” said Samuel Hale, analyst and head of IoT platform testing, MachNation.

MachNation’s 2019 IoT Edge ScoreCard contains analysis of the following vendors: ADLINK, Amazon, Bosch, ClearBlade, Crosser, Eurotech, FogHorn Systems, Interactor, Litmus Automation, Microsoft, Nymea, Rigado, Siemens, Software AG, SWIM, Telit, and Wicastr.

To assist engineering, product, and software development teams, MachNation evaluates many of these same IoT platforms in its hands-on IoT platform test lab called MIT-E.


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
