Each of this business case when implemented correctly, gives rise to Business 4.0. We, at Qentelli develop IoT applications with Edge Computing architecture brining applications and analytics closer to devices using a combination of IoT sensors, RFID technologies, Micro Data Centers, Hybrid clouds, new Wireless technologies and devices. This supports workloads and data to compute, store and analyse data at the edge. The architecture varies on a project basis and brings the end goals of control, visibility across the business chain and analytics.
Plow back into your Infrastructure Strategy
IoT applications and Edge Computing architecture need organizations to alter their old IT infrastructure with hybrid cloud to house ever-growing data and provide computing, storage and analysis hardware to IT teams. Businesses must look to integrate various FPGA or ASIC-enabled specialized chips for different devices they want to integrate into their IoT platforms or new edge architecture-based applications. Businesses need to analyse a lot of vendors around a network and wireless technologies based on their requirements. These new hardware systems have to work with existing and emerging business technology systems. This requires new investments in infrastructure for preparing them to work for applications built on Edge Computing.
We see a lot of possibilities around IoT applications, but this does not spare the challenges coming along. Altering infrastructure is the first and foremost challenge but there’s no way out apart from putting investments in the new age storing and computing devices. The second challenge is implementing Edge Computing without or minimum alteration to current technology stack. Amidst all these challenges, there lies a bright opportunity to converge physical assets into digital operations and enhancing current business products and services. Organizations should include Edge computing in their next IoT projects.
We talk to a lot of clients assessing their current technologies stack and powering their business transformation using new technologies. We recently interacted with two clients- one in Energy Spaces and the other Logistics. They talked about their business plans to get massive technology up-gradation. Both the clients wanted to optimize their transportation routes and automate financial processes, eliminating human inputs and to remove wastage associated. We assessed their technologies and proposed an IoT platform with Edge Computing architecture to make the future business ready. At Qentelli, we believe agile practices and the best engineering approach can help in building IoT applications that work as desired.
