Many see cloud computing as a key element for smart factory implementation, particularly over multiple factories. Others are concerned by the potential for cyberattack and the risks to intellectual property and manufacturing data.
So, what’s the answer? No cloud at all, yes to cloud computing and get the security right, or is perhaps a hybrid solution? Jay Gorajia, director of Global Services Digital Manufacturing Solutions at Siemens PLM and Michael Ford, senior director for Emerging Industry Strategy at Aegis Software, join me to debate how ‘the cloud’ can be utilized in manufacturing to manage the huge amount of data produced in a smart factory environment.
In the debate the panelists explore the benefits, risks and challenges related to using cloud computing in a connected manufacturing ecosystem.
