Advantech and Crosser Announce Strategic Alliance to Simplify Edge Analytics for Industrial IoT
February 01, 2021
Advantech, provider of intelligent IoT systems and embedded platforms and Crosser, provider of Intelligent Edge Analytics software for Industrial IoT, have announced that they have initiated a strategic alliance to empower global industries with Advanced Edge Analytics.
The strategic alliance includes an initiative to have Crosser Edge Analytics software pre-installed on new Advantech IoT systems in order to reduce the complexity and speed up the time from idea to proof of value in Industrial IoT. The low-code and drag-and-drop nature of the Crosser software makes it ideal, also for non-developers, to innovate. The connectivity support of Advantech IoT systems means that data from a long list of machines can be collected, analyzed, and acted upon.
“We are glad to work together with forefront software like Crosser. Together we offer a complete solution with our dedicated hardware, the Advantech EdgeLink system as backbone and Crosser Advanced Analytics on top - enabling Industry 4.0 for both brownfield and future installations.” says Rick de Vries, Head of Smart Industrial and Equipment Builders at Advantech.
The Crosser and Advantech partnership is targeting both already installed products, so-called brownfield installations, as well as new deployments in order to simplify the digitalization journey for industrial customers.
“In our discussion with Advantech, we wanted to meet the demand for a product that radically simplifies the industry's IoT initiatives. Therefore we came up with this Advantech Edge Solution-Ready Platform with the Low Code Crosser Platform embedded,” says Mikael Samuelsson, Director of Strategic Alliances & Partners.
