Interest in edge computing is accelerating among technology and business stakeholders in organizations across vertical markets and geographic regions. The influx of data from a fragmented array of edge devices and equipment is enabling optimized workloads that address various applications and edge environments. These edge solutions put compute, storage, and intelligence where it’s needed, and help firms anticipate customer needs, act on their behalf, and enable efficient operations in localized contexts.
In September 2022, Dell and Intel® commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate edge computing deployment strategies, use case initiatives, and transformation opportunities. Forrester conducted an online survey with 619 respondents and six qualitative interviews with senior IT and operational technology (OT) professionals at global enterprises to explore this topic.
