Project Haystack Organization Publishes Spring 2018 Issue of Connections Magazine

Richmond, VA – June 5, 2018 – The Project Haystack Organization (www.project-haystack.org),  a collaborative community addressing the challenge of utilizing semantic modeling and tagging to streamline the interchange of data among different systems, devices, equipment and software applications, today announced they have published the fourth issue of their Connections Magazine.

The Connections Magazine Spring 2018 issue reports on the latest news from the Project Haystack community from around the world, since their previous Fall 2017 issue. The Spring 2018 issue documents how fast the evolution toward smarter buildings can happen once building operational data has been tag-enabled. Both IT and OT contingents are recognizing that metadata tagging is key to clearing hurdles related to ease-of-use, unified data flow, edge-to-cloud, data security and even adhering to new GDPR data privacy rules. Not to be missed is the fact that the storytellers in this issue, especially those that were interviewed in the Conversations section, are not solution vendors, but are from the ranks of design engineers, commissioning experts, smart building consultants and large-portfolio property managers.

Project Haystack Announces Affiliate Membership in New EdgeX Foundry Organization

Richmond, VA – April 24, 2017 – The Project Haystack Organization (www.project-haystack.org) today announced its Affiliate Membership in the newly formed EdgeX Foundry. This follows the announcement this morning, by The Linux Foundation, the launch of EdgeX Foundry, an open source project to build a common open framework for Internet of Things (IoT) edge computing and an ecosystem of interoperable components that unifies the marketplace and accelerates enterprise and Industrial IoT. The initiative is aligned around a common goal: the simplification and standardization of Industrial IoT edge computing, while still allowing the ecosystem to add significant value.

IoT is delivering significant business value by improving efficiencies and increasing revenue through automation and analytics, but widespread fragmentation and the lack of a common IoT solution framework are hindering broad adoption and stalling market growth. The complexity of the current landscape and the wide variety of components creates paralysis. EdgeX solves this by making it easy to quickly create IoT edge solutions that have the flexibility to adapt to changing business needs.
