Software AG and Dell

We had heard rumors about this quite a while ago.

From the SDTimes:

Software AG and Dell today unveiled a new internet of things (IoT) architecture that allows enterprises to perform real-time streaming analytics at the edge of the network, close to digital devices and sensors. Dell’s award-winning Edge Gateway 5000 Series, designed for edge operations in extreme conditions, has been qualified with an embedded version of Software AG’s leading Apama Streaming Analytics. Performing real-time analytics on the edge can drastically reduce the cost of high volume Industrial IoT sensor traffic and the need for expensive central servers. This architecture also allows for the rapid deployment of edge analytics, and given the low per unit cost for companies to leverage Dell Edge Gateways, the cost of IoT projects can be significantly reduced and a return on IoT investments accelerated. This first joint Dell and Software AG solution focuses on preventative and predictive maintenance, with further IoT use case solutions to follow in the near future.
