Edge computing has been touted to be the ‘next big thing’ by experts from the industry. With businesses happening at the edge, generating actionable insights leading to digitizing business processes and transforming customer experience with the right technology is said to be edge computing. The edge exists wherever the digital world and physical world intersect as data is securely collected, generated and analyzed to create new value. This is made possible with solutions that deliver consistent infrastructure and operations, intrinsic security and expert support around the world. With every industry undergoing a digital transformation, edge plays a critical role in how organizations leverage new data sources to drive specific and differentiated business outcomes.
“Grand View Research predicts that by 2024 the global edge computing market will reach above $28bn. Dell Technologies, a pioneer in the field of information technology emphasizes on edge computing which is considered to take 2021 by storm. In fact, 69% of Fortune 100 companies already use Dell Technologies for their edge solution. For edge computing to unlock its complete potential, it needs high-level performance edge servers that can meet the needs of a wide range of IT solutions, storage that’s secure, flexible, scalable and easy to manage, HCI portfolio that simplifies lifecycle management, cloud to maximize the potential of easy-to-use, rapid, and efficient hybrid cloud solutions, and integrated hardware and software solutions leading to the creation of a modern network,” said Gurpreet Singh, Managing Director at Arrow PC Network (Titanium Partner – Dell Technologies)
IDC’s Data Age 2025 report states that by 2025, 175 ZB of data will be generated around the globe. Edge devices will create more than 90 ZB of that data. According to another data, by 2025, 75% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed at the edge. This represents a massive opportunity in an emerging market providing an opportunity for companies to leverage a complete infrastructure stack, large customer install base and sales channels, helping them to optimally manage their apps and data, and achieve desired business outcomes. Dell is uniquely positioned to deliver all the necessary assets, including scalable, secure, manageable and open infrastructure architecture, edge and big data expertise, the ability to customize through its OEM division, and a sophisticated global support and supply chain. The Dell Technologies Edge Ecosystem Program brings together innovative technology and services companies to help businesses be at the forefront of this change.
There are many reasons why Arrow PC recommends edge computing to its customers:
- Reduced Data Transmission and Storage in Cloud
- Reduction in the Lag Time in Data Transmission/Processing
- Reduced Signal to Noise Ratio
By shifting the data processing to the edge, organizations can take advantage of the increasing number of IoT edge devices, improve network speeds and enhance customer experiences. By taking advantage of edge computing, companies can optimize their networks to provide flexible and reliable service that will bolster their brand and keep their customers happy. It can surely be said that only the surface of edge computing has been scratched and more of it is yet to be uncovered which would certainly result in businesses taking a leap like never before.
