Edge computing is set to remain one of the tech ‘buzzwords’ of 2016. The discussion about edge has, to date, been tied closely to the internetofthings; the connected cars, fridges and bins that are not yet impacting the lives of consumers or driving serious revenues for businesses.

However edge has the potential to impact business in numerous pragmatic and immediate ways. It is already being used by many organisations to deliver competitive advantage by improving the delivery of digital services to a global customer base. There has growing interest in edge of network solutions in recent years, and yet many organisations are still seeking to demystify edge.

solve the business challenges they face today.
