When you think of it, the concept of fog computing is very logical. We are living in a BYOD world, so why wouldn’t that apply to the Internet of Things. Unlike Cloud computing Fog Computing goes beyond the concept of storage and services to the cross platform, cross operations issues associated with
Managing switches, routers, sensors and other devices where ever they are located,
Monitoring and aggregating data for field and cloud analytics where appropriate.
Storing and sharing information across the system for Business Intelligence systems.
Support for mobility of device, people and assets.
Additionally, companies that have been reluctant to change to cloud or have found issues with accessibility when all things are on the Internet will find Fog Computing a welcome compromise.
Who Should Attend.
This is a IT / CIO event that has opportunities for operations and field management to find alternatives and value as the difference between Operational and Information technologies continue to expand.
