Why is the Edge Important for the Energy Industry?

Posted by Cam Dufty

With its abundance of remote assets, complex interconnectivity across SCADA devices, and focus on safe and efficient processes, today’s Energy Industry is well-positioned to take advantage of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

But despite the potential benefits, concerns with IIoT solutions' implementation, cost, and reliability still remain. In his new whitepaper, PTC’s Stephen Sponseller explores the challenges of the IIoT for the Energy Industry—and how edge computing solutions are helping fill in the gaps.

Read the excerpt below for a preview, and download the full whitepaper for an in-depth look at how edge devices are contributing to improved decision-making, increased safety, and lowered costs across the Energy Industry.
