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?
