Automation 2020: Cloud Engineering
Engineering software has been slow to embrace the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, but cloud-based engineering tools are putting sophisticated aspects of the engineering workflow into more hands than ever before. Whether creating complex digital twins or Industrial IoT control systems, cloud-based engineering tools have arrived. The cloud allows companies of all sizes to access the unlimited compute power needed for simulations, as well as enables the real-time collaboration that helps engineers get more done.
In this edition of AUTOMATION 2020, you’ll discover how these tools support digital twins for upstream oil and gas production, learn how to enable a next-generation edge-tocloud control architecture, and review cloud/edge computing projects that could apply to your facility.
