The “Things” of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will show their true value when actionable business intelligence information can be pulled from the data they provide. However, current analytics products are only the tip of the iceberg. As the future approaches, next generation analytics and artificial intelligence technologies will support data and real time decision making at the point of production. Practitioners must realize that this data is critical, and needs to be protected and continuously available. Delivering this protection at the Edge requires a much more dynamic approach than has traditionally been used for data connectivity, or cloud based solutions.

Join Craig Resnick of the ARC Advisory Group and Jason Andersen of Stratus Technologies as they delve into:

  • The evolution of IIoT and data criticality
  • Techniques for protecting and ensuring the continuous availability of data
  • The success of organizations who are “living on the edge” having already deployed simple, secure, and reliable edge based solutions.
