Edge compute: use cases, business opportunities and growth strategies
If edge computing is an area of interest to you or a key part of your strategy and growth plans, our edge insight and support could help
What is edge computing and why focus on it now?
Edge computing brings processing capabilities closer to the end user/device or the source of data. New technologies and demand for new applications means the time is ripe for edge. Consumers want low latency for content-driven experiences and enterprises require local processing for security and resilient operations. Those who want to add value in this space need to understand the business models, the use cases and define a clear go-to-market plan, including operators who can use edge computing to grow revenues outside connectivity.
