The Empowered Edge

Edge computing will become a dominant factor across virtually all industries and use cases as the edge becomes empowered with more sophisticated and specialized compute resources and more data storage. The goal of edge computing is to keep the traffic and processing local in order to reduce latency, exploit the capabilities of the edge and enabler greater autonomy at the edge. The focus on the edge currently stems from the need for Internet of Things (IoT) systems to deliver disconnected or distributed capabilities into the embedded IoT world.

Over time, the edge will create an unstructured architecture consisting of a wide range of “things” and services connected in a flexible mesh linked by a set of distributed cloud services. In the future, a smart “thing” such as a drone, might communicate with an enterprise IoT platform or city-level local cloud services then conduct peer-to-peer exchanges with nearby drones for navigational purposes.

Through 2028, Gartner expects a steady increase in the embedding of sensor, storage, compute and advanced AI capabilities in edge devices. Mesh architectures will enable more flexible, intelligent and responsive, and peer-to-peer IoT systems.
