IBM Edge Computing Cognitive Solutions

Enterprises are turning to edge computing to bring data processing and real-time insights closer to the data source. Edge computing also addresses data transmission and latency issues for mission-critical operations. Today, less than 10 percent of enterprise-generated data is created and processed at the edge. However, by 2023, the figure is expected to grow to 50 percent, according to Gartner.

IBM Edge Computing Cognitive Solutions innovate Industry 4.0 and Connected Experiences. Proprietary and partner technologies further reimagine smart manufacturing, connected vehicles, smart cities and more – all underpinned by AI and Edge.
