Intel’s new report, ‘The Edge Outlook’ identifies edge computing as a critical factor that companies must harness to navigate and understand data for current as well as future business needs. The edge computing is claimed to make it possible for every single object to store information and for that information to be extracted and used in real time.
Technology use has grown exponentially during the pandemic, generating new, unprecedented volumes of critical business data. This data will be central to the digital transformation of many businesses, but many organizations are facing very real data processing challenges. For example, it’s impractical to send the sheer volume of data now being created back to the cloud for processing due to latency issues. This is where edge computing can play a critical role in driving efficiencies and underpinning the future growth of business, as per Intel.
