How Edge is Becoming Critical for IoT Use Cases
This IDC Market Presentation examines the relationship between Internet of Things (IoT) and edge. It underlines why the use case approach is necessary to connect IoT and edge opportunities, showing IoT use cases for which the edge approach is more relevant. This document analyzes and explains why edge is relevant — and critical — for specific use cases, providing a definition, assessment, and real-life example for each use case.
"IoT is an important driver of edge deployments. It is also becoming the only way to deliver the benefits of specific use cases," said Gabriele Roberti, research manager, European Customer Insights and Analysis and European Edge Practice co-lead at IDC. "Without considering the key features of different use cases, it is impossible to understand where an edge approach is a possible solution, a smart solution, or the only solution."
