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.
