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

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.
