Stage 4: The Data Center and Cloud
Data that requires more thorough processing, and does not require immediate feedback, should be forwarded to the physical data center or supporting cloud-based systems. In the data center or the cloud, more powerful IT systems can analyze, manage, and securely store data. Once data reaches this stage, it takes a bit longer to receive results, but the results will carry a more in-depth analysis than the previous 3 steps. This 4-tier approach to IoT infrastructure and processing will inspire new levels of collaboration in your supporting teams. IT professionals will work closely with OT professionals, both bringing their domain expertise into data processing and analyzation. Domain experts can teach IT professionals to identify sources of potentially valuable data.
