Launch of Marketplace Provides Sales Platform for Vendors of Edge Computing Apps Marketplace enables:

  • enterprise customers to purchase & securely deploy the apps they need at the edge
  • edge App developers to distribute and monetise their apps at the Edge
  • vendors and customers to scale their engagement seamlessly

Edge solution experts SixSq today announced the launch of the Marketplace, a key element in their mission to deliver a frictionless edge computing platform to vendors and customers.

The Problem with IoT

The IoT revolution has led to an explosion of data produced in a myriad of locations outside of the data centre. This phenomena touches every field, from mobility, transport, manufacturing, retail, agriculture, shipping, and energy, all the way to humanitarian, science and more.

Transferring all of this data to the cloud for processing is not viable. The only way to guarantee security, business integrity and privacy is for the data to be computed near to its source. This decentralised processing, or edge computing, is transforming the way data is handled, and delivering advantages such as reduced latency and bandwidth.

Why a Marketplace for the Edge?

According to Gartner “Around 10% of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralised data centre or cloud. By 2025, Gartner predicts this figure will reach 75%.” This rapid growth brings with it huge business opportunities, but also many challenges. Indeed, enterprise and public sector customers need to maintain control over their infrastructure, as they transform, especially at the edge.

However, until now, app vendors, system integrators, edge hardware manufacturers and customers were missing a go-to digital platform to leverage this new business. The Marketplace fills this void, allowing these stakeholders to interact is a seamless way.

“With we deliver a simple and powerful app store experience to the edge business,” said Marc-Elian Bégin, SixSq CEO and Co-founder. “Both vendors and customers benefit from unprecedented agility, flexibility and scalability, but without compromise on security.” is a proven technology platform for industrialisation and automation of edge applications and device management. The newly-launched Marketplace provides a mechanism by which edge applications can be deployed, managed and most importantly updated in a secure manner, at scale. It provides a future-proof solution which allows customers to evolve their infrastructure and applications without the need to physically visit the devices. This not only reduces cost, but also risk, as highlighted by the current pandemic.

Value for Vendors

The Marketplace provides start-ups and independent software vendors (ISV) with a way to market and distribute their applications. The clear pricing, straightforward contractual terms and flexible payment system, driven by Stripe, gives vendors a secure way to monetise their apps.

Value for Customers

Customers can securely deploy, manage and update apps from the Marketplace, giving them the opportunity to roll out apps at scale. The pay-as-you-go and subscription pricing strategy delivers frictionless business for purchasers, and the no lock-in policy ensures that their edge infrastructure is flexible and future-proof.

A marketplace to enable business at the edge

Organisations, public and private, must transform to take advantage of the IoT revolution. SixSq believes the Marketplace is the only platform capable of providing a fully operational, simple to use, secured by design, dependable and scalable solution. Furthermore, the marketplace brings together all stakeholders to ensure the edge is the place to do business.
