Gartner, The Edge Completes the Cloud, Bob Gill & David Smith, 14 September 2018


The Edge Completes the Cloud

Edge computing delivers the decentralized complement to today’s hyperscale cloud and legacy data centres. To maximise application potential and user experience, enterprise architects and technology innovation leaders need to plan distributed computing solutions.

What you need to know:

Using cloud computing and edge computing together will benefit businesses.
Edge computing will be leveraged anywhere in a distributed computing architecture.
Analytics need to be closer to the edge for near-real-time feedback, business process optimisation, and to avoid impact of latency and insufficient bandwidth.
Because enterprises' IT and OT organisations have conflicting objectives with legacy investments and architectures, businesses must plan for IT/OT alignment in architecture, governance, as well as infrastructure specification and acquisition.
