State of the edge: A case study on better connecting OT and IT domains
A key goal for digital transformation is factory automation, which can be slowed down by distance – both physical and organizational – between operational technology (OT) and organizations co-located at factory locations, and IT organizations housed at corporate headquarters. The Mendix for Industrial Edge platform, empowers factory operators to create custom applications on the Mendix low-code platform that run locally as Edge Apps to collect data, have access to insights in near real-time and provide optimal user experiences to a variety of end users. Siemens Digital Industries Motion Control adopted the Mendix edge capabilities more then a year ago and runs several use cases that empower emerging technologies and automize processes creating measurable value. In this session, hear from the team at Siemens about the hands-on insights on running Mendix applications on the edge in a live production environment measured by overall equipment efficiency for over a year.
