Industrial IoT and the Edge: Finding the Optimal Mix of Technology

Companies that rely on local data processing soon reach their limits. That’s because of the numerous different systems that are difficult to harmonize, but also because they lack the computing capacity for processing data on site, and company-wide, global processing is not possible. But the alternative of cloud computing also reaches its limits in specific applications, due in part to massive volumes of data, legal regulations or latencies. So, what is the optimal mix and how do you know when to process your industrial IoT data in the cloud versus at the edge? Join Dr. Ralf-Michael Wagner and Daniel Newman as they discuss the role that industrial IoT as a service plays in your digitalization journey. Together they will explore how the combination of local data processing directly in production and processing in the cloud can be the optimal solution here – especially in the area of smart manufacturing. This combination can give manufacturers the opportunity to take full advantage of the cloud, while still meeting market demands for maximum flexibility and responsiveness.
