Edge Computing encompasses a range of concepts, all of which relate to moving compute power nearer to data sources. It can potentially unlock a host of benefits, ranging from faster response times to optimising bandwidth usage and from ensuring privacy to enhancing the performance of Artificial Intelligence enabled CCTV. The adoption of Edge computing technology is already widespread, and is progressing apace. New concepts include emerging standardisation, and a range of developments related to Multi-Access Edge Computing, specifically around Mobile Edge Computing and provision of Edge-as-a-Service.
Growth of Edge computing is proceeding in tandem with many other of the DX12 technology groups that Transforma Insights analyses, as it both catalyses the adoption of many of these technologies, and in turn the development of the Edge market is accelerated by other DX12 technologies.
