The Edge Completes the Cloud
Edge computing delivers the decentralized complement to today’s hyperscale cloud and legacy data centers. To maximize application potential and user experience, enterprise architects and technology innovation leaders need to plan distributed computing solutions.
What you need to know:
Edge computing will be leveraged anywhere in a distributed computing architecture.
Analytics need to be closer to the edge for near-real-time feedback, business process optimization, and to avoid impact of latency and insufficient bandwidth.
Because enterprises' IT and OT organizations have conflicting objectives with legacy investments and architectures, businesses must plan for IT/OT alignment in architecture, governance, as well as infrastructure specification and acquisition.
