Applications of Edge Computing

This post was originally published on ZPE Systems

The edge computing market is huge and continuing to grow. A recent study projected that spending on edge computing will reach $232 billion in 2024. Organizations across nearly every industry are taking advantage of edge computing’s real-time data processing capabilities to get immediate business insights, respond to issues at remote sites before they impact operations, and much more. This blog discusses some of the applications of edge computing for industries like finance, retail, and manufacturing, and provides advice on how to get started.

What is edge computing?

Edge computing involves decentralizing computing capabilities and moving them to the network’s edges. Doing so reduces the number of network hops between data sources and the applications that process and use that data, which mitigates latency, bandwidth, and security concerns compared to cloud or on-premises computing.

Edge computing often uses edge-native applications that are built from the ground up to harness edge computing’s unique capabilities and overcome its limitations. Edge-native applications leverage some cloud-native principles, such as containers, microservices, and CI/CD. However, unlike cloud-native apps, they’re designed to process transient, ephemeral data
