The Future of Edge Computing

This post was originally published on ZPE Systems

Edge computing moves computing resources and data processing applications out of the centralized data center or cloud, deploying them at the edges of the network and allowing companies to use their edge data in real-time. An explosion in edge data generated by Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, automated operational technology (OT), and other remote devices has created a high demand for edge computing solutions. A recent report from Grand View Research valued the edge computing market size at $16.45 billion in 2023 and predicted it to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 37.9% by 2030.

The current edge computing landscape comprises solutions focused on individual use cases,  lacking interoperability and central orchestration. The future of edge computing, as described by leading analysts at Gartner, depends on unifying the edge computing ecosystem with comprehensive strategies and centralized, vendor-neutral management and orchestration. This future relies on edge-native applications that integrate seamlessly with upstream resources, remote management, and orchestration while still being able to operate independently.

Where is edge computing now?

Many organizations already use edge computing technology to solve individual problems or handle specific workloads. For example, a manufacturing department may deploy
