Based on its recent analysis of the global Internet of Things (IoT) platforms market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Eurotech S.p.A with the 2019 Global Growth, Innovation & Leadership Frost Radar Award for its Everyware Cloud IoT Integration Platform. The full-suite platform can be hosted in the cloud, on-premise in a data center or at the edge to access, manage, and update devices. Its edge portfolio comprises IoT Gateways, edge servers, and high-performance edge computers for various vertical (stationary and mobile) markets and applications.
As a specialist in enterprise-ready IoT open source, Eurotech is a significant contributor and committed founding member of a strong open source ecosystem, centered on the Eclipse IoT Working group. It is an initial contributor to open source projects like Eclipse Kura, an IoT Edge framework and application development environment for IoT gateways; and Eclipse Kapua, an IoT platform for device management and data integration with Cloud and IT applications.
"Eurotech leverages its remote device management capabilities to easily connect devices with cloud services and visually compose data flows for the edge to manage, analyze, and route data," said Dilip Sarangan Industry Analyst. "With security at the core of its services and a microservice-oriented framework, it allows partners to create IoT solutions that enable customers to develop and deploy IoT solutions quickly."
In the cloud and on-premise
The differentiating flexible IoT Gateway and Edge Middleware provide device abstraction, multi-cloud connectivity, field bus integration, and security, thereby aiding full lifecycle management of the edge devices. Using the MQTT protocol for data and device management, Eurotech eliminates additional complexity and requirements for device deployment and configuration. Besides, as Everyware Cloud can be deployed both in the cloud and on-premise, it supports real-time data management, application lifecycle management, and remote access and diagnostics on devices. Eurotech also offers Web service APIs using REST protocol, which helps devices connect with the cloud and deliver microservices.
"Real-time analytics and data management are essential for most industrial companies looking to integrate IoT in their operations. By enabling these services, Eurotech underlines its leadership in IoT platforms," noted Sarangan. "With a wealth of integration possibilities, including DB and ESB integration, message routing, pre-defined Kafka routes, and rich APIs, Eurotech bridges IoT operations with IT. This important service endows the company with a critical competitive edge and cements its leadership in IoT."
