EDGE COMPUTING: SMART DEVICES AND HUMAN-MACHINE INTERFACES PROMOTED DECENTRALIZED COMPUTING
Network architectures have traditionally focused on moving data collected from data sources to a central computer for processing and analysis.  The various data sources spread across the network are often referred to as the edge.Rather than move data to a central computer, increasingly data is processed at the source where it is collected, a network architecture known as edge computing. Because data does not need to be transferred, there are fewer latency issues, requires less network bandwidth, and saves server space.Smart devices and human-machine interfaces are two of the factors that are behind an increase in edge computing.  Gartner found in a survey that “10% of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud. By 2022, Gartner predicts this figure will reach 75%.Rod Piechowski, Senior Director at HIMSS, said that “people are already engaged in edge computing and they don’t even know they’re a part of it. It’s a relatively new term. Not everyone sees the need for it yet, and the case needs to be made in order to move towards it. DICK WEISINGER READ MORE
