The late 20th century saw the rise of the Internet, and the ability to connect isolated island of data storage and computing power. The early 21st century saw the rise of the cloud, and the ability to move or shift distributed data storage and computing to a centralized, shared, and elastic fabric. Today, driven by technology development and the massive deployment of smart Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, we are witnessing the rise of Edge Computing, and the ability to distribute computing power and analytical tools back out to the edge of the network where the data is created and where real-time insights are needed.
To gain a better sense of the drivers, barriers, and adoption rates for Edge Computing technology, we conducted an in-depth survey, commissioned by HPE and Intel, of over 500 executive and technology professionals. The survey was designed to identify the factors influencing and shaping the use of Edge Computing within the enterprise today.
