New business requirements and technical capabilities are driving more computing and communications power toward the edge of the network, according to this Gartner Research report. Edge architectures and technologies will be an essential component of innovative products and services.


  • Adopt edge computing where cloud architectures deliver insufficient security and resiliency
  • Also take the edge computing route when using technologies where compelling user experience demands real-time responsiveness
  • Design products and services to exploit endpoint, near-edge and far-edge processing for superior security and performance
The edge will become empowered with sophisticated compute resources and more data storage. Enterprise architecture and technology innovation leaders will use edge computing to respond to technology trends and to improve resiliency, responsiveness, security and user experiences.
