Just Why is the Food & Beverage Industry Turning to Edge Computing?

A webinar with Schneider Electric and ProLeit

Register for the Innovation Talk Webinar: Just Why is the Food & Beverage Industry Turning to Edge Computing? on May 18, 2021 from 16:00-17:00 to join experts from ProLeit, Schneider Electric, and Stratus Technologies as they discuss concrete use cases on how edge computing is helping food & beverage companies accelerate business resilience and sustainability.

May 18, 2021

4 PM – 5PM (CEST) | 10 AM – 11AM (EDT)

Next-generation food & beverage companies are leveraging Industry 4.0 technologies to gain efficiencies and build trusted, competitive brands. Their secret sauce to long-term success: bridging progress with business resilience and sustainability.

Industrial digitization brings new levels of visibility and traceability across the supply chain, as well as improved production. It’s about efficient operations, data-based business decisions, and showing tangible results for sustainability performance and cost savings.

To capture these benefits, food & beverage companies cannot rely on cloud computing alone. IDC predicts that by 2024, 70% of G2000 organizations will have invested in a common IoT platform layer that provides access to data collected through various point solutions. This data must be securely captured, processed, stored, and analyzed — with no latency or data gaps. Thus, edge computing is required to enable the speed and resiliency demanded by IIoT applications such as analytics, asset management, optimization, planning, and scheduling.
