Industry 4.0 also known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a subject that has drawn attention of many professionals by the potential impact that will cause in the way we work and live. In practice this new era is based on the use of different technologies to increase control throughout the manufacturing process, including planning and projection stages, manufacturing and control, distribution and logistics. In addition, the main focus is: Increase Productivity.
When we quote new technologies, we are considering features such as autonomous robots, group data storage for multiple corporate sites, Big Data tools, internet of things and the main one, which is the integration between all elements. Looking at a set of tools is another factor, in addition to the term industry 4.0, which unites them. This fact is the need for data storage and processing. Going a little deeper, for a Big Data solution to operate there is a need to consume data stored on a database, process it to then transform it into information that will be consumed and used by the user. Thinking about a robot, it will be operated by a system, which communicates with a database and in turn executes the actions based on the data consumed. Looking at the internet of things, we can think of the diverse equipment that we use in our day generating data and sending to a base, where they will be processed and used strategically by us or by the market. A practical example would be to register the essential products and the minimum quantity in your refrigerator. Each time you open the refrigerator and take out a package it counts and stores the data. From time to time it checks the data, compares it with the set minimum inventory and, when necessary, automatically sends, to the app or e-commerce of the retailer of your choice, the purchase request and, like magic, you arrive home and your purchase will be waiting for you.
To support all this demand, increasing the capacity of data processing is essential, this is where cloud computing becomes meaningful. In practice, we have a volume of decentralized data generation, which only grows and industries with their chain demand solutions that allow them to scale their computational capacity according to needs and at the same time deliver security, high availability, backup, metrics, among others, without having the need to have a specialist team for each of these areas.
Given this scenario, we see the market investing in creating and expanding cloud computing solutions to enable the 4th industrial revolution to happen and bring the benefits everyone expects, namely: Increasing productivity, reducing waste and improving quality in the solution delivered to the final consumer.
