Adapdix, a leading provider of AI-powered automation software, has acquired Edge Intelligence, the developer of the first geographically distributed data management platform for analytics this year that is built for both edge computing and hybrid cloud environments. With Edge Intelligence’s data management, Adapdix can expand its Data Mesh AI/ML offerings across additional markets, enabling Adapdix to expand its offering across edge automation markets. Using EdgeOps and Edge Intelligence together, data generation and business analytics can be managed at the source. With this technology, Adapdix can deliver true IT/OT convergence, cloud repatriation, and federated learning for organizations with geographically dispersed data.

Ritu Jyoti, Group Vice President, Worldwide AI and Automation Research at IDC, said, “Today, far too many AI/ML solutions are one-offs, with the capabilities simply provided as an add-on feature. However, for AI/ML to reach its full potential, it must be built into the technology platform. With the acquisition of Edge Intelligence, Adapdix is further embracing this architectural shift by delivering a fully integrated platform for data ingestion, analytics, and AI/ML inference – while maintaining data at its source. By combining Edge Intelligence to the capabilities of their EdgeOps AI-powered automation platform, Adapdix is delivering on the promise of IT/OT data convergence.”

DataMesh™, a product of Adapdix’s AI-based operations management platform EdgeOps™, is the first product of the software company’s next-generation platform to overcome the challenges of real-time operational data management. The Edge Intelligence acquisition enables DataMesh™ to query and store IT and operational data together, enhancing Adapdix DataMesh product™. DataMesh™, by EdgeOps, provides real-time batch processing, preprocessing, and inferencing in milliseconds enabling real-time asset analysis, which reduces downtime and improves operational efficiency. Companies such as several leading semiconductor manufacturers already use the software to improve their operational performance.

Kate Mitchell, CEO at Edge Intelligence, said, “AI and data are essential partners, and with Edge Intelligence’s distributed database technology, Adapdix can now offer customers a single logical database for query and AI-powered analytics on IT and OT data. Edge Intelligence capability along with Adapdix Edge Ops AI and modeling platform allows for fully integrated, real-time AI at the source of data creation, which saves customers data transport, compute, and storage costs.”
