Decentralized architectures will boost the power and spread of Internet of Things devices.
The exponential growth of IoT devices in every sector are leading executives in organization to consider decentralized approach, to process data at the edge. According to Gartner, there will be 25 billion IoT devices in 2021, which represents 20% growth compared to 2020. This tremendous increase leads to additional strains on the IT architecture, which leads to an increase in latency.
As customers required real time response, current IT infrastructures will struggle to meet these needs. Edge computing can overcome IoT devices limitations, thanks to its capacity to process data at the edge of the networks, instead of running all data through a remote data center. Thus, data is analyzed at its source in real time independently of IoT devices increase. Once data is processed at the edge, results can be sent to cloud applications.
The benefits of edge computing are breakthrough:
