IBM services for edge

The convergence of edge computing, IoT and AI is sparking a new era of enterprise-led transformation that is fundamentally changing how we work and how businesses operate.

Edge computing brings computation and data storage closer to where data is created by people, places and things—to enable faster insights and actions, reduce data exposure and maintain continuous operations. By 2025, 75% of enterprise data will be processed at the edge, compared to only 10% today.

IBM Services co-create, design and deploy edge-enabled IoT solutions powered by AI that can drive real-time contextual insights into operations to create self-learning and intelligent workflows at scale.
