The industrial automation is moving from a highly fragmented market - primarily composed of closed legacy platforms, proprietary protocols, non-compatible data structures, with overall no global standards to scale the machine data – to an interconnected set of business systems and devices coordinated by middleware platforms leveraging hybrid deployment models. Within this new framework, scalability, interoperability and the ability to flexibly deploy analytics and applications across several layers of the IoT stack based on the requirements of specific use-cases is becoming of paramount importance.
Litmus has been a pioneer in advancing new frameworks for industrial automation with its Loop platform.
