Intelligent Edge
What is the Intelligent Edge?

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.

Intelligent Edge explained

The Edge is where people, devices, and IoT connect to the network edge.

The Intelligent Edge harnesses modern IT infrastructure to transform this Edge activity and data into actionable insights to deliver better business outcomes, optimized operations, and enhanced products and experiences.

Why the Intelligent Edge?

Why the Intelligent Edge?

Expanding on the benefits of the mobile and cloud eras, the next big shift is the Era of Data and Insights where massive amounts of Edge data from users, devices, and IoT are gathered, analyzed, and actioned using AI and automation to deliver better business intelligence, operations, and results.

Traditionally, corporate networks connect employees to their data, applications, and services. Now, networks must manage and leverage the increased volume, velocity and variety of data, traffic, and sources–especially from IoT.

Instead of transmitting all data from billions of IoT devices and applications to a central data center or cloud, new business outcomes are coming from the combination of compute, storage, networking, and applications acting on data in real-time or near real-time at the edge while still maintaining secure and reliable connectivity to the cloud.

Modern infrastructure, security, analytics, and tools are critical to maximize performance and value from Edge networks.

What are the benefits of intelligent edge computing?

Using intelligent edge technology can help maximize a business’s efficiency. Instead of sending data out to a data center or other third party, analysis is performed at the location where 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.
