Adapdix has acquired Edge Intelligence to target additional new markets and expand offering across the edge automation market. The combined EdgeOps and Edge Intelligence platforms will reportedly allow distributed AI and enterprise data management at the source of data creation as well as enable Adapdix to offer advantages of IT/OT convergence, cloud repatriation and federated learning for enterprises that have geographically dispersed data at the edge or in the cloud.
Anthony Hill, CEO at Adapdix, said, “Edge Intelligence has developed the leading distributed edge data management solution, with patented technology, and a sophisticated data analytics application targeting subscriber and cloud analytics. The addition of Edge Intelligence enables Adapdix to provide true IT/OT convergence, with full data virtualization, which for other providers is still only a theoretical concept. This acquisition allows Adapdix to address customers considering Cloud repatriation.”
Kate Mitchell, CEO at Edge Intelligence, said, “AI and data are essential partners, and with Edge Intelligence’s distributed database technology, Adapdix can now offer customers a single logical database for query and AI-powered analytics on IT and OT data. Edge Intelligence capability along with Adapdix Edge Ops AI and modeling platform allows for fully integrated, real-time AI at the source of data creation, which saves customers data transport, compute, and storage costs.”
“Today, far too many AI/ML solutions are one-offs, with the capabilities simply provided as an add-on feature. However, for AI/ML to reach its full potential, it must be built into the technology platform,” said Ritu Jyoti, Group Vice President, Worldwide AI and Automation Research at IDC.
“With the acquisition of Edge Intelligence, Adapdix is further embracing this architectural shift by delivering a fully integrated platform for data ingestion, analytics, and AI/ML inference – while maintaining data at its source. By combining Edge Intelligence to the capabilities of their EdgeOps AI-powered automation platform, Adapdix is delivering on the promise of IT/OT data convergence.”
