Edge Technologies to boost Enterprise Value
I was invited to attended the 35th IET India Digital Conversations. We discussed how edge computing is driving new use cases and business opportunities for customers around the world and unlocking tremendous value.
Edge computing is a distributed computing technology in which client data is processed at the edge (periphery) of the network, as close as possible to the source of data. The move towards edge computing is driven by trends like the rise of mobile computing, the decreasing cost of components of the computers and the steady increase in the number of smart devices related to the Internet of Things (IoT).
Edge Computing has been a topic of much discussion in recent years, due to its potential to drive significant change in digital transformation. As more and more use-cases emerge from various industries and sectors around the world, the impact of edge computing is becoming increasingly clear.
The global pandemic has further highlighted the need for digital transformation and accelerated the adoption of newer technologies, such as edge computing. The ability of edge computing to process data closer to the source, rather than relying on centralized data centers, has become increasingly important as remote work and distributed networks have become the new norm. This allows for faster and more efficient data processing, which can lead to improved decision-making and increased productivity. Additionally, edge computing can also help to reduce latency and improve security by keeping sensitive data within the local network.
As companies continue to adapt to the challenges of the pandemic, edge computing is becoming an increasingly attractive option for driving digital transformation and unlocking new business opportunities. Check out the video and let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment below!
