The promise of edge computing in industrial environments means getting the right device data in near real-time to drive better decisions, and maybe even control industrial processes. For this to work, it means that the edge device, its embedded software, edge servers, the gateways and cloud infrastructure must all be up-and-running correctly all the time.
Who is operating this way already? What triggers upgrades in the plant? How long does it take to get a secure and reliable distributed control and analytics system? Which companies are leveraging the Edge for IIoT use cases today? How are companies planning investments and prioritizing requirements? This is what ARC asked a group of more than 300 end users across the globe to gauge the current and future state of the market.
