8 Ways to Enable the Cloud Edge in Manufacturing
For Manufacturers today

For Manufacturers today, the cloud edge requires a new approach

As manufacturers embrace resiliency to secure and enable continuity in their operations and supply chains, their legacy WAN architectures are often slowing them down because they're too complex to manage and lack automation.

As network speeds increase, higher levels of agility can be achieved by manufacturers, who can benefit through new services or cloud apps. However, they may also suffer increased costs, compromised security, and greater downtime.

Add the lack of visibility when consuming applications over the Internet and worker productivity can suffer. Now, more than ever, manufacturers are needing to enable remote experts, remote operations, and dispersed teams to drive workforce continuity.
