2017: A Year of Momentum for EdgeX and IOTech

Keith Steele, IOTech CEO, EdgeX Foundry Board member and Technical Steering Committee (TSC) Chair gives his views on why the EdgeX Foundry project has generated so much momentum in just six months after launch, spotlighting also the importance of credible commercialization partners. What is driving this momentum? First and foremost, there's a market need, the industrial internet of Things (IIoT) market is projected to grow to $195B in the next few years (source Markets and Markets), with at least 40% IoT data stored, processed, analyzed at or near the edge (source IDC).   Secondly, there's a technology gap as identified by the IIC's Edge Computing Task Group, the Open Fog consortium and many industry-leading companies. Peter Levine from Andreessen-Horowitz has provocatively suggested that the age of edge compute is taking over the cloud.

Another Great F2F TSC Meeting

Last week, we held a Face-to-Face Technical Steering Committee meeting in Palo Alto. It was another successful one and, after each meeting, my confidence grows that the EdgeX Foundry project will achieve great things. Before reflecting on the week, I'd like to pass on my thanks on behalf of the community to VMware who hosted the event at their wonderful Palo Alto facility. California Burritos from their cool on-site restaurant was a culinary discovery for me!
