IoT & Edge Computing

Get the most out of your IoT applications with Edge Computing.

Modern IoT solutions enable digital business models. They increase efficiency, provide deeper insight into production processes, and deliver immediate value. 

Teamplayer Edge-Computing.

The IoT approach of moving as much functionality as possible to the Cloud often fails in an industrial environment due to the amount of data to be transported and limited connectivity.

This is where "on the edge" solutions can help. They are close to the point of data generation and enable early interventions, initial analyses or applications that were previously only typical for the Cloud.  

The combination of cloud-based applications with edge applications leads to coherent overall solutions in the industrial environment. At the same time, edge technology opens up the possibility of designing OT-related applications without reference to the Cloud.

Currently in focus: IT / OT Convergence

Edge introduces the technology of IT (Information Technology) into OT (Operational Technology).  

The IT: 
The world of offices, the Internet, ERP systems, the Cloud, etc.

The OT: 
OT systems automate production.

IT/OT convergence = connecting the real world of automation with the digital world of information technology.

Data acquisition on the edge as the basis for digital business models

Michael Heller

Michael Heller is a computer scientist with a passion for automation and operational technology (OT). As Group Leader and expert in the field of Industrial IoT and Edge, he is enthusiastic about the "things" of Industrial IoT and their connection to neighboring systems, such as the Cloud.  

"Industry 4.0 requires consistency across all systems. In digital business models, value is created in IT. However, the integration of OT as the "last mile" is essential. In order to prevent worlds from colliding, the concepts of edge computing offer ideal conditions for establishing IT technology in OT.”
