Life Outside the Cloud: Intel Brings Intelligent Processing to the Edge
August 3, 2016
Solving the data integration problem requires a new way of thinking to take advantage of edge computing for industrial organizations. Applications running on edge devices fully unlock the business cases of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) at the edge by decreasing equipment downtime, optimizing cell/region/sector performance, and reducing product defects. These applications include management, analytics, security, and others.
Traditional data architectures must be reimagined to support the rapid proliferation of data from an exponentially expanding set of data types. This critical step is addressed by Bit Stew’s data integration technology—designed to work in concert with edge computing hardware, including Intel’s IoT Gateway—to rapidly ingest raw data and apply machine intelligence to automate the data modeling and mapping that provide the critical semantic understanding of information across disparate systems.
