RICHMOND, Va. (PRWEB) June 03, 2020
SkyFoundry (https://www.skyfoundry.com), a leading developer of analytics software for use with IoT device and equipment data, announced today their SkySpark® Everywhere™ has received the 2020 Connected World IoT Innovations Award.
This award recognizes the innovation and growing adoption of SkySpark Everywhere deployed in embedded hardware devices to address IoT applications that require compute-at-the-edge, as well as the cloud. In an era of the COVID-19 pandemic, innovation is needed to help industries operate in a way that is both safe and productive, while also helping keep our world connected during a time of social isolation. These innovations help industries like healthcare, utilities, construction, and more, continue to push forward.
“We are excited and honored to see SkySpark Everywhere recognized for its ability to address one of the most significant challenges in the IoT - the fact that the IoT requires a distributed computing approach and applications cannot be fully addressed only through cloud-based solutions,” said John Petze, Principal and Co-Founder of SkyFoundry. “It's simply not possible, cost-effective or desirable to require every piece of data from every device be sent to a cloud platform before value can be derived from the data. Many applications require advanced analytics functions to be processed at the edge – where equipment systems are operating in real time.”
The Connected World IoT Innovations Awards recognize out-of-the-box thinking for products, solutions, and platforms that are transformative through the use of the IoT. Each year, technology companies submit nominations and the editorial advisory board of judges evaluate the most transformative innovations to hit the market, looking at what makes the technology unique, what type of solution the product is, how the company worked with others on the innovation, and more. The judges also consult with outside industry experts and do follow up with the candidates throughout the research process.
“We need innovation now more than ever,” says Peggy Smedley, Editorial Director, Connected World and President, Specialty Publishing Media. “The 2020 Connected World IoT Innovations identify the best tech for today’s market and help to move the needle forward.”
SkySpark Everywhere was been designed from the ground up to be embedded in small, low-cost IoT devices, as well as operating at the server, PC and cloud level. The unique distributed architecture capability of SkySpark Everywhere provides customers with a true edge-to-cloud data architecture. SkySpark Everywhere provides the full feature-set at all levels of the architecture, including data collection, storage analytics and control.
SkySpark Everywhere has seen growing adoption in embedded applications announced by companies including Belimo, Intellastar, Anka Labs, Lynxspring and others.
