Computing and storage are moving to the edge, and IT needs to be ready

June 17, 2024
Contributed by: Sarah Richardson
Edge computing, a technology that brings computation and data storage closer to data sources, is rapidly expanding beyond traditional data centers. This decentralized model helps reduce latency and can enhance application performance by shortening the distance between users and servers. According to IDC, global spending on edge computing is projected to rise to $232 billion in 2024, with sustained growth expected through 2027. Gartner’s Thomas Bittman highlights three primary use cases: low latency requirements, cost-effective local data processing, and unreliable network connections. Industries like manufacturing, energy, retail, and finance are leveraging edge computing for applications ranging from predictive maintenance to high-frequency trading. However, widespread adoption faces challenges, including security risks and vendor market fragmentation. Implementing a zero-trust architecture and fostering collaboration between IT and OT stakeholders are strategies to address these barriers.
