ABI-business-case-IIoT-EdgeHear from Intel, ABI Research and FogHorn in this joint on-demand webinar to define and discuss the business case for building IIoT edge intelligence. The industrial edge needs intelligence for many IIoT projects to produce successful and useful results, both technically and financially.

Register now and receive the accompanying 14-page ABI Research report, The Business Case for IIoT Edge Intelligence.

In this session, participants will learn:

  • What constitutes the real edge
  • What both the edge and the cloud can and cannot accomplish
  • Key challenges in creating an intelligent industrial edge
  • Technical and economic benefits this transformation will deliver
  • Real-world use cases of edge intelligence

An intelligent edge can fill in the gaps to follow through on problem identification, time-to-resolution, and access for new pathways to success. In the IIoT, it all starts with the business case, and this webinar provides several examples of successful business cases.
