Smart technology powers our lives, from wearable tech to traffic control and smart factories. Data analytics promise safer travel, more efficient energy consumption and increased productivity. At the same time, the explosion of data has created new challenges. Increasingly, experts look to the benefits of managing data at the edge to address those challenges. Simply put, edge computing refers to processing data closer to where the data is created or consumed. For example, sensitive factory machinery generates vast amounts of data. Processing that data at the source saves bandwidth. Additionally, access to real-time analysis means that the machinery can adjust
