At Data Economy we have invested in looking at what is coming next. What is tomorrow’s big driver? How will it provide overwhelming value to businesses, and what will investors find the most compelling to finance across the digital revolution?
Edge computing currently responds to many of these questions and could indeed revolutionize the way we use our technology and fundamentally reshape the remainder of this century. Driven by the need to power IT closer to the data source, de-compress the glut of data and increase latency, edge has become an increasingly sought after business and technological proposition.
The global discussion on edge computing is still at an early stage, focused on implementation and deployment, where to build, and how to finance new network developments. In the data world now emerging, distance does matter and the need for speed in 5G environments demands increasingly localised solutions. Edge supports cloud rather than replaces it – the possibilities are potentially endless.
50 billion devices demand a communication strategy and network to support and interpret the vast volume of data it will generate. One of the biggest data drivers will undoubtedly be transportation. From planes and drones to driverless cars. Breakthrough wearable technologies will emit their own data by consumers globally. The data collected from all these devices will need to be harvested, analysed and instantly interpreted which only the edge can offer.
Adding to this are also oil and gas fields, mining, healthcare, and a host of other industries.
Tomorrow is happening today, residing at the edge of the digital economy, with edge data centres the new oil refineries of this revolution.
Demand can only continue to explode. Those ahead of the game will be the winners, and it is to that end that Data Economy is hosting ‘The Edge of Tomorrow’, to debate the technology requirements, finance and cost, and, most importantly, its business value to all.
