FogHorn Systems has announced the availability of Lightning ML, the newest

version of its edge intelligence software platform for the Industrial

Internet of Things (IIoT).


Lightning ML is an IIoT software platform with integrated machine learning capabilities and universal compatibility across all major IIoT edge systems.

Accenture predicts that IIoT can add $14.2 trillion to the global economy by 2030. However, industrial environments present a challenge to status quo methods for data collection and analysis.

“The money and time required to move massive amounts of machine data to the cloud for analysis, only to send the results back to the edge, often makes little sense,” said Mike Guilfoyle, Director of Research and Senior Analyst at ARC Advisory Group. “In many instances cloud computing won’t be practical, necessary, or desirable. The reality is that edge intelligence is critical to a successful overall analytics strategy.”

In the initial launch of FogHorn’s Lightning platform, we successfully miniaturized the massive computing capabilities previously available only in the cloud. This allows customers to run powerful big data analyticsdirectly on operations technology (OT) and IIoT devices right at the edge through our complex event processing (CEP) analytics engine.
