Edge computing via local Edge controllers allows uniterrupted, high speed collection, filtering and processing of real time data line side. Initial fast reactions can be initiated with the full data sets also being sent to associated cloud systems for further analysis. This processing at two layers respects the data integrity but allows the collected data to be processed as live and historical instances. The challenge is how to collect the data from diverse sources without interrupting the existing processes but also being able to span "brown field" systems where there may not even be any existing communication or data capture functions.
