By Ondřej “Ondra” Krajíček, Y Soft – The thing about technology is this: The leading edge keeps moving. And it often runs in circles. Today that means Edge Computing is the next big thing and it stands on the shoulders of giants.
The Cloud has enabled us to do so much more – much more data is being generated than ever before, allowing companies to improve processes, gain better customer insight and create new services.
However, all the data crunching and moving from the Cloud back to the device has an impact on IT – congested networks, slow moving traffic, costs and efficiency concerns. As an example, the ability to print, so central to both performance and productivity, slows down when the network does.
Unless, of course, you do your computing where your deployed devices are. That’s the big Edge idea.
