Competition is fierce and digital transformation is a must. It is estimated that companies will spend more than $650 million a year by 2025 on digital transformation. Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are driving this trend and provide companies with exponential operational gains while decreasing costs.
Implementing a centralized edge management system (EMS) provides the necessary infrastructure to leverage the three levels of industrial edge management:
- Cloud. By connecting all edge devices through a cloud-based EMS, operators have visibility to monitor the performance of hundreds of machines, anywhere in the world.
- Factory. It is important to match the right edge device to the right machine to tap the full potential of available machine data. Additionally, an open architecture and standards are essential for customized solutions including access to apps.
- Field. Machine level edge devices offer real time access and efficient processing of high frequency data.
