"The modernisation of OT applications represents an opportunity for builders of dense public industrial edge clouds near customer premises."

Public industrial edge clouds will be needed in future to support new edge-native use cases such as drones and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) but the business case is elusive. Edge providers and technology vendors should tap into the emerging operational technology (OT)/information technology (IT) transformation trend to identify operational application functionality that can migrate to a public rather than a private industrial edge cloud.

Information provided in this report

  • Insights into OT/transformation trends that are driving enterprise demand for private industrial (on-premises) edge and eventually public industrial edge and why OT applications are not going to follow IT applications into the public cloud
  • Identification of key drivers for OT application modernisation
  • Recommendations for edge cloud providers and technology vendors on how to use the OT application modernisation opportunity to drive the business case for public industrial edge cloud
  • How OT application modernisation can augment demand coming from emerging, completely new edge-native use cases that involve mobility, such as drones and AGVs
  • A detailed and thoughtful taxonomy for edge locations and a categorisation of use cases that are driving edge cloud demand
