Availability and edge computing.

IT leaders are embracing edge computing as a powerful way to maximise the business value of initiatives such as the Internet of things, mobile computing and digital transformation. In a distributed edge computing architecture, data is processed at the periphery of the network, as close to the originating source as possible.

Edge computing improves time to action, enables analytics in near real-time and conserves vital network resources. Businesses achieve immediate cost efficiencies and performance improvements, with added flexibility to drive innovation. Edge computing also delivers huge gains for users in remote office and branch office locations, while giving IT teams greater flexibility in managing growing numbers of endpoints and users.

This white paper illustrates why edge computing satisfies the requirements of a changing workforce, which is becoming more distributed and mobile than ever before.
