Building an Edge Computing Strategy

Edge computing is integral to digital transformation, and projects are emerging in different parts of enterprises. To avoid edge sprawl, accelerate deployments, ensure extensibility, and drive efficiency and effectiveness, I&O leaders must be proactive and create an edge computing strategy. 

Leaders responsible for cloud and edge infrastructure projects should:

  • Lead their edge computing strategy by creating and socializing a vision for edge computing, and linking it to integral enterprise and technology initiatives.
  • Identify existing and potential use cases for edge computing through proactive collaboration with business units, and develop a process to identify new use cases. 
  • Accelerate expanded deployments of edge computing by identifying and mitigating common challenges and risks.

Five Elements of an Edge Computing Strategy

“By 2026, at least 50% of edge computing deployments will involve machine learning (ML), compared to 5% in 2022.”
