One crucial lesson from the COVID-19 era is that cost-effective digital manufacturing solutions are needed to keep factories and supply chains running smoothly while producing high-quality products: whether OEM, parts or assembly supplier, contract manufacturer or manufacturing services supplier.
A single production line can generate more than 70 terabytes of big data per day–yet most data remain unanalyzed. Hybrid cloud embeds the latest next level information technologies like AI, edge computing and cybersecurity to efficiently extract value and act on this untapped data at the point of need, especially when speed and data latency are critical factors.
