Fourth Industrial Revolution

The Fourth Industrial Revolution represents a transformational time for the manufacturing industry. Those who deploy the right technology to capitalise on smart factories and the Industrial IoT (IIoT) will reap huge financial rewards and lead a lucrative generation of automated industrial processes. But these advances are dependent upon collaboration – no single organisation can deliver the benefits of IIoT alone.

That is why computing juggernaut Intel has partnered with technology leaders like ADLINK, Dell, and SAS. Together these companies are powering smart factories with solutions that generate value from industrial data.

Capture the value of industrial data

The very connectedness of the IIoT elevates security considerations for all involved. Well-designed security solutions can provide end-to-end protection across a manufacturer’s entire IoT platform, creating a chain of trust from thing to network to cloud.

Security and scalability

Scalability is one of the key requirements for an IIoT solution. Data and computing requirements tend to expand over time, so manufacturers should look for an analytics architecture that can scale and can distribute the analytics load between the edge and the cloud.

Return on investment

Like every business investment, return on investment (ROI) must be considered at all times when deploying a smart factory. The ability to prove ROI comes through intelligently connecting old machines and accessing trapped data – then utilising it with edge analytics and making the machines work autonomously.
