Edge computing is creating a new internet. In an age where consumers and businesses demand the smallest possible delay between asking a question and getting an answer, edge computing is the only way to reduce the time to insight. Edge computing shrinks this gap by lowering latency, dealing with data even when there is insufficient bandwidth, decreasing costs, and handling data sovereignty and compliance. While centralized cloud computing will persist, the radically different way in which we can create and act upon data at the edge of the network will and is creating novel markets and unlocking new value. By 2024, the edge computing market is expected to be worth over $9.0 billion with a compound annual growth rate of 30%.
