January Webcast Abstract


IIoT cloud to edge

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) architectures incorporate elements of edge (close to the process) and cloud (on- or off-premise) application and analytical capabilities. As quickly as industrial technologies and applications are advancing, how can you decide what mix of cloud-based applications and edge-based computing and communications investments and architectures to use? And how do cloud and edge technologies fit with existing architectures in place? How should cloud and edge integrate with and bring greater value to existing automation systems and devices, safely and securely?

 

 

Learning objectives

  • Outline factors that help determine what mix of cloud-based applications and edge-based computing and communications investments and architectures to use.
  • Examine how cloud and edge technologies fit with existing automation, controls, and other operational architectures already in place.
  • Learn how cloud and edge technologies integrate with and bring greater value to existing automation systems and devices.
  • Determine how to design and consider safety and cybersecurity as an integral and ongoing part of an IIoT cloud-to-edge architecture.
