September 16, 2019 – Litmus Automation, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform provider, has received an award from Frost & Sullivan recognizing its IIoT product LoopEdge.
Litmus Automation’s LoopEdge product was named the 2019 North American Edge-to-Cloud IIoT Enablement Platform for Manufacturing Award for its product value.
“As part of our ongoing research, we identify companies that have successfully introduced new and innovative products into their markets, with emphasis on product quality and customer value,” says Sankara Narayanan, senior industry analyst, industrial, Frost & Sullivan. “One of the core competencies of LoopEdge is connectivity as it connects both legacy and modern devices from different vendors and analyzes data right at the edge. Litmus Automation’s platform seamlessly and securely connects, manages, analyzes and integrates industrial devices from edge to cloud.”
Litmus Automation’s LoopEdge and Loop software platforms help customers seamlessly collect, process, analyze and integrate their industrial device data from edge to cloud. LoopEdge allows customers to collect data from industrial systems like PLC, DCS, sensors or historians and run applications locally on top of the data, such as event processing, Lambda functions, machine learning models and more. Loop includes extensive IIoT product lifecycle and deployment management for large-scale enterprises, industrial OEMs and system integrators – all driven by various IIoT, OMA and other industry standards.
“We appreciate the validation of the New Product Innovation Award and are working now to expand our sales and marketing channels to reach more industrial customers who are looking to implement Industry 4.0 solutions,” says John Younes, co-founder and COO of Litmus Automation.
According to the report, “The primary challenge for manufacturing companies when they begin their Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) projects is that they have numerous discrete industrial devices, systems, and protocols from various automation vendors, and connecting to these varied assets can be difficult.”
Frost & Sullivan noted Litmus Automation’s solutions because customers can build multiple use cases instead of having to determine custom integrations from scratch. The report states, “A key differentiator is that Litmus Automation’s customers do not require many resources on their end because they can deploy the products on their own, without needing a system integrator approach.”
