About this report

There’s no turning back, and no reason anyone would want to. The edge, bursting with data, is the future.

About 80 percent of all data will be processed at the source—primarily at the edge—by 2025. Computer capabilities at the edge, packed with ever-advancing artificial intelligence, are growing at a brisk clip. Put simply, the edge is changing almost everything about how people live and work, from advances in vehicles and retail stores to edge-powered manufacturing plants and sports stadiums.

To help you navigate this quickly changing landscape, we created this special issue of The Doppler. It’s devoted to explaining the edge, showing it in action, and helping you take steps to ensure your enterprise thrives tomorrow.
