Based on its recent analysis of the global embedded computing market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Losant with the 2022 Technology Innovation Leadership Award for its embedded edge agent (EEA) that highly enhances agility and time to market. Losant’s innovative and easy-to-use platform removes the complexity of developing highly customized IoT applications with its edge and cloud platform, helping global businesses tailor their IoT solutions with a customizable user interface (UI) that goes beyond basic branding for enterprise connected products.
The embedded edge agent in WebAssembly module is proof of Losant’s continuous effort to stay ahead of the curve. Losant spent 2 years of research and development (R&D) investment on this feature, which dynamically updates the runtime behavior with speed and agility. Frost & Sullivan believes Losant’s embedded edge computing functionality enables production lines to be more responsive via integration with machine sensors, controllers, and gateways.
The company’s edge features that are directly integrated into their IoT platform offers a thorough and ready-to-use solution for data collection, processing, analysis, and visualization, providing real-time insights. Losant’s users can easily access and manage data with its advanced drag-and-drop dashboard that facilitates the typical time-consuming application development process.
“Unlike market leaders who use a full-code approach, Losant’s platform is low-code based and therefore more usable than other platforms that require customized development. Losant’s full application programming interface (API) helps clients customize their IoT solution and integrate with additional internal or external services faster,” said Carina Gonçalves, Industry Principal at Frost & Sullivan. “The drag-and-drop workflow editor stands out in the market because it allows enterprises to build custom workflows and manage complex interactions between edge devices, networks, and the cloud on their own, without programming resources.”
This simple low-code approach to cloud and edge deployment dramatically boosts agility and time to market by enabling an easily operated environment where non-developers can quickly and seamlessly deploy solutions. To secure its customers’ information, the company leverages modern encryption technologies, meeting the most rigorous security requirements while ensuring a flexible deployment model for all customers.
Additionally, Losant collects its customers’ device data in a completely managed and scalable database while maintaining a highly competitive and flexible pricing model that focuses on each business’s needs. As a result, Losant helps to reduce the cost of IoT solution deployment, while removing the complexity in development.
“Losant takes a unique approach to the market, with a solution that is at once portable, usable, and customizable. The platform can be deployed in public or private clouds or on-premises environments, whereas most market players can only implement their platforms in public cloud or on-premises native environments,” noted Gonçalves. “Frost & Sullivan believes these unified, embedded, and edge workflows in the field with application and experience workflows in the cloud are a market-first value proposition that can appeal to many customers with hybrid environments.”
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality that is gaining rapid acceptance in the market. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.
