Edge Computing is Reshaping IoT: Time for European Enterprises to Take Notice

Authors: Giorgio Nebuloni, Gabriele Roberti, Douglas Hayward

Abstract

This IDC Perspective discusses the concept of edge computing and puts it into context with IoT adoption in European enterprises. It briefly summarizes the benefits and scenarios in which edge computing is taking center stage, and it provides IT buyers in the region with key action items as the plan to exploit this trend.

"A growing number of IT buyers dealing with IoT architecture are looking to exploit edge computing as a paradigm to analyze data close to where it is generated. While technology and European supplier ecosystems are making strides, we recommend starting any project with an analysis on real and specific use cases in which edge approaches can generate savings or additional revenue opportunities," said Giorgio Nebuloni, research director, IDC European Infrastructure.
