IoT Spotlight Podcast introduction:
The IIoT Spotlight Podcast shines a light on Industrial IoT solutions that are impacting businesses today. Every episode we interview an expert about a specific IoT use case. Our goal is to provide insight into the planning and implementation of IIoT systems, from new business models to technology architecture selection to data ownership and security. The IIoT Spotlight is produced by IoT ONE, an information platform that provides market insight, partner development, and go-to-market support for technology providers, end users, and investors.

Fog computing is a concept of bringing a layer of computing power closer to the edge of an enterprise's network and was a term coined by Cisco several years ago as part of their "Internet of Everything" pioneering initiative. While Cisco succeeded at the networking element of fog computing, that left the whole computing side of the equation unanswered. In the first episode of this three-part series, we chat with a company that was formed with the core objective of finding the answers to this question. We are pleased to welcome David King, CEO of FogHorn Systems to the show who will be telling us more about the company and how they are working hard to bring IoT intelligence closer to the edge.

"We're just trying to make the metadata sent to the cloud a lot more valuable and a lot more secure." -David King
"With edge computing. lots of uses cases are popping up in many sectors, literally hundreds if not thousands of use cases in all these domains." -David King
"Every industry, every function is going to find some use case eventually. It's just a matter of finding the value and bringing the cost and the complexity down. The use cases themselves are limited by our imagination." -Erik Walenza
