What is intelligent edge?
Intelligent edge is a place at which data is generated and analysed, interpreted, and addressed.
Intelligent edge refers to the analysis of data and development of solutions at the site where the data is generated. By doing this, intelligent edge reduces latency, costs, and security risks, thus making the associated business more efficient. The three major categories of intelligent edge are operational technology edges, IoT edges, and information technology edges, with IoT edges currently being the biggest and most popular.
Why intelligent edge?
Using intelligent edge technology can help maximise a business’s efficiency. Instead of sending data out to a data centre or other third party, analysis is performed at the location the data is generated. Not only does this mean this analysis can be performed more quickly, but it also decreases the likelihood that the data will be intercepted or otherwise breached. Additionally, it means that businesses become much more self-contained and do not rely on potentially faulty network connections to do their work.
While upgrading to intelligent edge technology can pose significant upfront cost, the automatic analysis it performs stands to increase revenue and save money over the long term.
