In common belief, the sensor that detects reality, and the web application that makes the data available in the cloud for numerous services, are the natural end-point of any Industry 4.0 installation.   While this certainly holds true for sensors, the reality is different for the computing domain. Edge computing solutions still outnumber cloud computing solutions in industrial automation.   Step-by-step approaches focusing mainly on connectivity and additional intelligence on premise are easier to ideate, calculate and control as well as offering benefits in data sovereignty and available competences. Cloud solutions, on the other hand, make it easier to connect information and distribute IP. Aligning both approaches in a pragmatic way via intelligent Sensor Integration Machines and solutions that are able to be deployed in both worlds are the most future-proof way forward.
