Deliver the right data to the cloud for deeper analysis with new edge analytics

Share this post:

The Watson IoT Platform Analytics team has been hard at work on a new feature enabling analytics at the edge of the network. We announced the forthcoming capabilities back in June with Cisco and several of our joint beta customers. Edge analytics are now live in the Watson IoT Platform service, allowing you to configure your analytics in the cloud, then push them out to ‘edge-ready’ gateway class devices such as the Cisco 829 router or UCS servers that sit out in the network close to the source of device and sensor data.

With Watson IoT Platform Edge Analytics, organizations can analyze data where it makes the most sense- while filtering out low value data and forwarding high value data to the cloud. Edge analytics enables you to leverage the power of the cloud–flexibility, providing you with the opportunity to scale up and down, while delivering rich services and analytics that have the ability to distribute analytics to the source to monitor more data and respond faster.
