Cloudera has announced two new solutions to make it easier to get data from IoT devices. Cloudera Flow Management (CFM) is a highly scalable data ingestion and management solution. Cloudera Edge Management (CEM) is an edge management solution for IoT and Streaming use cases. It is comprised of two components: MiNiFi, an edge agent and Edge Flow Manager, which is an edge management hub.

“The key challenges with IoT are around edge management like the inability to control and manage edge agents, difficulty in collecting real-time data from edge devices directly and most importantly, the trouble with updating specific set of agents with edge applications. CEM clearly addresses those challenges with ease. This is going to pave the way for transformative solutions across IoT initiatives across multiple industry verticals,” Cloudera wrote in a post.
