The edge computing market is growing fast, with experts predicting edge computing spending to reach almost $350 billion in 2027. Companies use edge computing to leverage data from Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and other devices at the periphery of the network in real-time, unlocking faster insights, accelerating ROIs for artificial intelligence and machine learning investments, and much more. This blog highlights 7 edge computing examples from across many different industries and provides tips and best practices for each use case.

What is edge computing?

Edge computing involves moving compute capabilities – processing units, RAM, storage, data analysis software, etc. – to the network’s edges. This allows companies to analyze or otherwise use edge data in real-time, without transmitting it to a central data center or the cloud.

Edge computing shortens the physical and logical distance between data-generating devices and the applications that use that data, which reduces bandwidth costs and network latency while simplifying many aspects of data security and compliance.
