In a report released August 10, Analyst Ian Hughes of 451 Research, provides an overview of FogHorn's recent funding, products and contributions to industrial IoT, most specifically in regards to machine learning (ML). Hughes emphasizes the fact that FogHorn is helping to shift the mindset from cloud-first solutions for IIoT by bringing its fog computing codebase to lower level devices inside industrial facilities to set the standard for massively distributed processing.
"Working on the US West Coast, but also pulling in industrial giants, has put the company at the major cultural intersection of IT and OT. Practical deployments show its effectiveness in solving problems. FogHorn will face competition from the spectrum of artificial intelligence and analytics providers, but it’s gotten in early and deep." Ian Hughes, Analyst, Internet of Things at 451 Research
