Edge computing is a distributed computing framework that helps bring enterprise applications closer to data sources such as Internet of Things (IoT) devices, edge servers and gateways. This proximity to data at its source benefits a business by allowing processing and analysis to be done in near real-time to create faster insights, improved response times and bandwidth optimization.

IBM Edge Application Manager is an intelligent, secure and flexible platform that provides autonomous management for edge computing. It is a full-lifecycle edge environment that helps you create, deploy, run, secure, 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.

The primary benefits of IBM Edge Application Manager include:

  • New customer experiences — Help deliver more personalized engagements that proactively respond to users
  • Faster insights and action — Tap into new sources of data created and processed at the edge
  • Continuous operations — Run autonomously, even when disconnected, and reduce disruption and cost

IBM Edge Application Manager is intelligent, flexible and secure. Additional capabilities include:

  • The industry’s first autonomous policy-based workload lifecycle management edge platform with edge-native programming
  • Consistent visibility, control and automation for managing and scaling workloads from edge to core and across any hybrid multicloud environment, even when disconnected
  • Firewall ready; prevents common attacks; encrypted and signed messages; container tampering and update verification

IBM has an autonomous edge solution to enable a single administrator to securely manage the scale, variability and rate of change of application environments across tens of thousands of endpoints. You can easily create, deploy, run, secure, monitor, maintain and scale business logic and analytics applications at the edge using IBM Edge Application Manager. Edge endpoints run on containers and Red Hat® OpenShift® to give you choice and flexibility to extend from any public or private cloud to any edge server or device.

Yes. IBM brings deep industry expertise — including a new dedicated edge computing services practice — to help advance enterprise edge strategy and deliver successful client implementation.
