IoT platforms generally involve the ability to do basic data processing on the edge, perhaps enabling dashboards and alerts, and then push this IoT data to a central cloud where more complex applications may be hosted. This works in some situations. But, in many cases, factors such as latency, data security, privacy, cost, and the requirement to support fully or partially disconnected systems on the edge make relying solely on this approach impractical.

Pratexo fundamentally enables an organization to run applications at the far edge, including complex systems that incorporate machine learning or artificial intelligence. Pratexo technology is complementary to most IoT platforms, and overcomes the issues listed above. To discuss this further, with respect to any particular IoT platform, please reach out to us.
