ABI Research (Allied Business Intelligence Inc.)’s competitive vendor assessment on IoT Edge Analytics: Hardware-Agnostic SaaS and PaaS choose FogHorn, a leading developer of Edge AI software for industrial and commercial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, as the Overall Leader, Top Innovator, and Top Implementer.

ABI Research evaluated vendors depending on their deployment of advanced edge analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to customers in various industries, scalability, go-to-market strategies, and efficiency.

The competitive ranking provides an independent evaluation of edge-cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) technologies enabling the IoT for organizations, including providers offering hardware-agnostic machine learning (ML) and AI.

FogHorn’s performance in the industrial sector and wide range of clients and strategic partnerships made it stand out as a leader. Moreover, ABI Research chooses FogHorn based on its ability to serve multiple IoT use cases and other standard capabilities for predictive analytics and ML as a major consideration of its evaluation.

As reported by AB Research, FogHorn was given higher implementation scores measured through its influence and adoption rate of video analytics for the internet of things (IoT) domain.

FogHorn was also chosen to be a successful vendor monetizing market opportunities resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year in June, FogHorn declared its Health and Safety monitoring solution, allowing organizations to address employee wellbeing. It also aimed to help prevent exposure to COVID-19 and monitor workplace safety through personal protective equipment detection and hazard monitoring.

Such solutions can be delivered as a ready-to-use package that uses ML and video analytics for diversifying FogHorn’s product portfolio compared to other edge AI vendors by ABI Research.

The Lightning Edge AI Platform from FogHorn was the first edge-native AI solution designed for safe, on-site intelligence. Its edge processing capabilities are excellent for low-latency use cases requiring real time data processing while leveraging ML and AI capabilities in a small computational footprint.

In addition to being named an Overall Leader, FogHorn received high marks for predictive and ML modeling and evaluation against ABI Research’s unique innovation criteria.
