The Industrial IoT (IIoT) has created a wave of big data that is coming in at an unprecedented rate and volume that most business operators are not equipped to handle. To add to the complexity, the information collected from the multitude of devices and sensors, deployed in every conceivable sphere of operation, also comes in a variety of different data formats. To gain meaningful insights into this huge volume of data and derive useful information that can help business operators make the right decisions, this data needs to be securely stored, analyzed, and integrated with back-end business applications. Considering that most industrial operators are not data scientists and do not have the in-house expertise to store and analyze big data, these tasks are best left to data experts. In this regard, cloudbased IIoT solutions have gained considerable ground by providing data solutions that are scalable, secure, and cost-effective. In addition, their ability to integrate devices with computing infrastructure, development platforms, and business applications in the cloud, has redefined the IIoT. Many companies are turning to the cloud to mine their IIoT data so that they can derive useful insights into their business operations. In this article, we discuss five reasons why you should consider moving your IIoT platform to the cloud.
