Edge and cloud computing models are complimentary to each other and provide a flexible solution based on the unique needs of each organization. Advantages of Edge ComputingBroadly speaking, edge computing can enhance OT solutions by addressing cloud computing issues like performance, latency, bandwidth, security and proximity. Lower bandwidth limitationsWith the proliferation of IoT devices and other connected equipment at the edge, data generation is growing exponentially. Thus, to address AI use cases requiring large data volumes at the edge, organizations are using edge computing to reduce data transmission requirements by filtering and processing data locally. Challenges around the EdgeIt’s time to examine the other side of the coin and assess the risks that need to be countered in edge computing initiatives.
