MA webinar: Cloud & Edge Computing: ERP Best Practices

Cloud, fog, edge: you’ve heard the terms, but what do they mean? How is data analyzed at each level, and do you need them all in your manufacturing operation? How can we make the leap from traditional data collection and storage to these more automated solutions that also provide computation and analysis?

In the latest instalment of Manufacturing AUTOMATION and Pemeco Consulting’s free, quarterly webinar series called Integrating the Enterprise: ERP Best Practices, we sought to answer those questions.

On September 25, 2019, we presented our third webinar in the series: “Cloud & Edge Computing: ERP Best Practices,” which dug deeper into the technology architectures of Industry 4.0, specifically cloud, fog and edge. Speaker Jonathan Gross, managing director of Pemeco Consulting, used examples to demonstrate what the differences between the computing levels are, shared architectural considerations, and evaluated the pros, cons and risks of analyzing data in the cloud versus the edge.

He followed that up with a plan for businesses to implement these data analytics and storage tools.
