MachineShop Named a Gartner 2016 "Cool Vendor" in the Internet of Things
API-Centric Market Leader Bridges Edge and Cloud Computing for the Connected Enterprise
BOSTON, MA – May 11, 2016 – MachineShop, the leading provider of API-based enablement and integration services for the connected enterprise, today announced that it has been recognized as a “Cool Vendor” in the Internet of Things by Gartner, Inc.(1). Gartner periodically identifies short lists of vendors who exemplify unique qualities and stand out in emerging and mature technology markets.
“We are honored by this special recognition from Gartner and the validation for MachineShop in this over-hyped and often misunderstood market,” said Michael Campbell, MachineShop CEO. “We’ve worked very hard to promote an API-centric approach to the highly distributed challenge of enabling and integrating connected data sources and systems.”
MachineShop was founded in 2012 to simplify the way organizations integrate and act upon operational data and the systems that generate it. In many asset-intensive industries, operational systems remain proprietary silos that require an enormous amount of time and money to integrate into popular IT business systems and customer applications. MachineShop exposes systems and data as API-based services with a complementary set of capabilities for filtering, rules, command and control, event management and more. MachineShop stands out for its ability to deploy these services in virtually any distributed architecture, embracing a true Edge-to-Cloud offering.
