Act on insights closer to where data is created

IBM Edge Application Manager is an intelligent and flexible platform that provides autonomous management for edge computing. A single administrator can manage the scale, variability and rate of change of application environments across tens of thousands of endpoints simultaneously.

IBM Edge Application Manager is a full-lifecycle edge environment that helps you to safely create, deploy, run, monitor, maintain and scale business logic and analytics applications at the edge. It can run anywhere and manage workloads on virtually any edge endpoint, including servers, gateways and devices. It brings enterprise-grade protection to edge deployments with spoofing prevention, tamper-proof and encrypted capabilities.

Edge endpoints run on containers and the Red Hat® OpenShift® enterprise Kubernetes orchestration platform, giving you choice and flexibility to extend from any public or private cloud to any edge server or device.
