Edge computing – a type of architecture in which data and processing power are hosted as close to end users as possible – is in vogue. So much in vogue, in fact, that it can be easy to believe that edge is making "older" computing paradigms obsolete.
The Linux Foundation’s 2021 State of the Edge Report predicts that spending on edge computing environments will total $800 billion by 2028. And enterprise IT vendors of all sizes are positioning themselves to provide edge computing capabilities.
Suffice to say, if you’re not up to speed with edge computing concepts and priorities, now’s the time to learn. This Edge Computing in the Enterprise report explains how edge computing works, how it relates to cloud computing and data centers, how to approach application development for the edge and which industries will have the largest edge footprint going forward.
