This IDC Web Conference provides an overview of edge computing in Europe and its impact on other technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT). In this presentation, Gabriele Roberti, Douglas Hayward, Bruno Teyton, and other analysts from the Edge Computing Research Launchpad Team discuss key topics, including the definition of edge computing, the different types of edge and the link between them, use cases and industries in Europe (focusing further on telecommunication), and different real-life implementations.

Delocalizing intelligence to edge locations seems counterintuitive in the cloud era, but history has also proven to be cyclical in the IT world. In the past few months, "edge" has been a skyrocketing buzzword, to highlight the fact that transmitting and elaborating data into "the core" is not always the best choice. As recent IDC research finds, IoT users in Europe have a mixed approach to data processing and are almost equally split between processing data on-premise within a centralized platform (37%) and processing data at the edge on sensors and devices (36%). At the same time, all kind of vendors and service providers in the IT space are now adding edge capabilities to their portfolios.
