Exchange with IDC - the role of Edge computing in Industrial Digital Transformation
I recently had the pleasure to exchange with IDC on the opportunity of Industry 4.0, the role of #edgecomputing to enable the transformation and how industrial players can bridge the IT OT competency gap and accelerate their digital plans.
When looking at companies that have been successful in their transformation, I can see 3 key success factors:
- the upfront definition of clear use case with well identified business benefits (not digitizing to digitize)
- closing the gap in IT/OT competencies with Digitization teams
- standardizing solutions across multiple sites for fast deployment once value is demonstrated
