Open, standards-based connectivity between the data and services resident on edge devices and cloud-based applications is paramount, which in turns drives the need for edge computing architectures that can fulfill these emerging requirements while enabling fast time-to-market for services developers.

EdgeX, a new open source project within the Linux Foundation, was recently formed to address the need for an open ecosystem at the network edge that enables interoperability among plug-and-play components.
