Servers & Systems: The Right Compute

Unlock the power of the industrial IoT for your small or midsized manufacturing business

The industrial Internet of Things is not just for the big guys; smaller manufacturers can achieve game-changing results too. Learn how in an on-demand session from HPE Discover Virtual Experience.

HPE small business IT solutions 800.jpgWhether or not you agree that the Internet of Things is driving a “fourth industrial revolution,” as many have claimed, it’s undeniable that the rise of robotics, smart sensors and analytics is shaking up manufacturing in a big way. And not just among larger enterprises. Smaller manufacturers are embracing the IoT for use cases ranging from asset tracking to predictive maintenance to quality assurance.

That said, the industrial IoT (IIoT) can feel a bit like unfamiliar territory for SMBs. Many are taking an exploratory approach, focusing on particular pain points or laying the groundwork for future initiatives. It’s a smart strategy, and one that my colleague Michael Meek and I explore in some detail in this on-demand session from HPE Discover Virtual Experience: Future Proofing for Industrial IoT.

Watch the video to learn:

  • How closed-loop manufacturing enables you to break down silos and build processes that are connected, automated and data-driven.
  • How the IIoT helps you tackle the most pressing challenges confronting SMBs today: rising customer expectations; intense competition; growing supply chain and production complexity; and escalating societal and regulatory mandates.
  • How HPE edge-to-cloud products help you work smarter, not harder, and enable you to generate high-value insights into your processes. We focus on the HPE Edgeline EL300, Aruba Instant On access points, and the HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 Plus.

And you won’t want to miss a segment featuring CuBE Packaging Solutions, a company that makes sustainable food packaging. CuBE built an IIoT platform that leverages HPE storage and compute and Aruba connectivity, in partnership with our ecosystem partners. (You can watch this segment as a standalone video here: Sustainable food packaging, powered by IoT.)
