Adapdix, a company that offers AI-powered automation software, has acquired Edge Intelligence, developer of the first geographically distributed data management platform for analytics built for both edge computing and hybrid cloud environments.
Edge Intelligence's data management will complement Adapdix' EdgeOps AI/ML Data Mesh offering, according to Apadix, and will enable them to target additional new markets and expand offerings across the edge automation market.
The combined EdgeOps and Edge Intelligence platforms will allow distributed AI and enterprise data management at the source of data creation. This enables Adapdix to offer true 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 virtualisation, which for other providers is still only a theoretical concept. This acquisition allows Adapdix to address customers considering Cloud repatriation."
Saving customers costs
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."
Adapdix recently announced EdgeOps DataMesh, the first product of its next-generation AI-powered automation software platform EdgeOps that overcomes the typical hurdles of real-time operational data management.
The Edge Intelligence acquisition enhances Adapdix' DataMesh product with true distributed data management and allows users to query and store IT data along with their OT data. Performing data ingestion, pre-processing, and inferencing in milliseconds, EdgeOps DataMesh enables real-time analysis and control to improve operational efficiency and reduce downtime of high-value assets. The software is already used by Fortune 500 customers, including several leading semiconductor manufacturers, to improve their operational performance.
