ZEDEDA joins Linux Foundation’s Margo project to advance interoperability at the edge

ZEDEDA has announced its membership in the Linux Foundation’s Margo project as a steering committee member. Margo is a new open-source initiative aimed at developing open standards for interoperability at the edge in industrial automation settings. ZEDEDA joins a group of founding members that includes ABB, Capgemini, Microsoft, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, and Siemens.

Darren Kimura, ZEDEDA’s president and COO, will represent the company on the steering committee, alongside a representative from Intel. Additionally, ZEDEDA co-founder and CTO Erik Nordmark will participate in the technical working group, and senior director of marketing communications and partner marketing Sarah Beaudoin will join the marketing working group.

ZEDEDA CEO and founder Said Ouissal highlights the importance of open collaboration for advancing technologies. “Working alongside industry leaders, we are committed to building an open standard that enables our customers to achieve their digital transformation goals quicker than ever before,” says Ouissal.

“From the beginning, ZEDEDA was built with interoperability in mind, leveraging the open-source EVE from LF Edge. This type of open collaboration represents a major milestone in realizing the full potential of technologies like AI, machine learning, and advanced analytics at the edge. I’m incredibly excited about the value Margo will create across industrial automation ecosystems.”

Marking a step towards realizing interoperability in industrial automation ecosystems, the Margo project aims to establish mechanisms for interoperable orchestration of edge applications, workloads, and devices through an open standard, reference implementation, and a compliance testing toolkit.

Darren Kimura underscores the challenges posed by the diverse nature of industrial automation environments. “The heterogeneous nature of industrial automation environments can be a barrier to customers seeking to implement and realize value from edge computing projects, particularly at scale,” adds Kimura.

“Margo seeks to develop interoperability standards for these environments across hardware, applications, and orchestration platforms, and I am delighted to join the steering committee to help drive these efforts.”
