Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): Bridging the IT-OT Gap in Your IIoT Project
A vast number of industrial assets are located outside of traditional industrial processing and manufacturing facilities. These remote industrial assets are often not in the physical control of asset owners or organizations responsible for these assets’ operation. Integrating these remote industrial assets into Internet of Things (IoT) applications poses significant challenges.
Authored by a leading IoT and M2M analyst, Sam Lucero, this report looks at how companies can integrate remote industrial assets into IoT applications; orchestrate data flowing to and from the asset to edge infrastructure and to the cloud; manage the asset over its lifecycle, including from a cybersecurity perspective; and, usually, integrate the IoT application into a wider set of enterprise applications. Further, the report also explores new solutions and value chain partnerships that can help Industrial IoT adopters simplify the development, deployment, and management of applications that incorporate remote industrial assets.
In this industry report, you will learn:
- Market trends in Industrial IoT
- Benefits and challenges of connecting remote industrial assets
- Characteristics of “IoT Infrastructure-as-a-Service”
- Why Sierra Wireless and Microsoft have partnered to address customer needs and create interoperability between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT).
