cloudyBoss announces Australia’s first EdgeXFoundry alliance


SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, November 4, 2017

Following the successful IoT Congress in Barcelona last month, where the first release of the Dell-seeded EdgeXFoundry was showcased, Australian ERP developer, cloudyBoss announced they would incorporate the technology within their ERP offering.

EdgeXFoundry is a vendor-neutral open source project hosted by The Linux Foundation building a common open framework for IoT edge computing. Members include Dell, Samsung, AMD and Toshiba. At the heart of the project is an interoperability framework hosted within a full hardware- and OS-agnostic reference software platform to enable an ecosystem of plug-and-play components that unifies the marketplace and accelerates the deployment of IoT solutions.

cloudyBoss was unaware of EdgeXFoundry until recently and was working on a similar framework it calls DDL (Data Device Layer) which EdgeXFoundry has already developed to an advanced stage. The EdgeXFoundry solution was attractive to cloudyBoss as it enables cloudyBoss to simply capture the vast amount of data required for its embedded machine learning and AI.

cloudBoss’s pioneering work with smart cities and industry verticals such as the aged care sector will quickly benefit from such alliance. For example, with aged care, EdgeXFoundry enables cloudyBoss to collect sensitive data, such as patient information, from a multi-vendor range of sensors, beacons and other devices, which is essential to its 360.eldercare vertical solution and extends device choice for end-clients.

Until now, there has been serious scepticism about the security of sensitive data harvested from many different sources and shared via the cloud. This was a potentially limiting problem for some EdgeXFoundry members.

Members were particularly interested in the comprehensive solution that cloudyBoss has devised with its unique user-defined, block-chained organisational clusters. The cloudyBoss solution enables the secure real-time flow of data and processes between members, using a military grade architecture, which allows them to work safely and securely in unison.

“Our alliance with EdgeXFoundry accelerates technology smartness by shortening development time and redirecting engineering resources toward generalised Machine Learning with graphics, text and numerical data, interoperable data connectors for non-IoT data streams and now EdgeXFoundry for anything IoT. For clients, this means that they’ll soon access features such as trend predictors, organisation auto-pilots, as part of their NEXT+ baseline enterprise engine, and will be able to leverage continuously evolving industry-based ML training datasets from each of our 360 solutions. In addition to cluster business via our native enterprise blockchain hyper-ledger architecture, cloudyBoss is a de facto global benchmark for enterprise management in the post-ERP era.” Says CTO Giovanni Di Noto

CEO, Lou Schillaci followed on by saying “Just being the first Australian company to actively support EdgeXFoundry, demonstrates our commitment to IoT and our continued desire to future-proof the cloudyBoss ERP eco-system.”

Philip Des Autels, Executive Director of EdgeXFoundry and Director of IoT at the Linux Foundation, concluded by stating: “We are looking forward to having cloudyBoss on as a contributor and member.”
