Edge computing is an emerging computing architecture that processes data close to the source with an aim to resolve latency issues for critical applications across sectors. It minimizes the processing and transmission strain on cloud computing centers by reducing the time it takes for users to input data and moving computing capacity to the network's edge. This can transform various business processes, notably for data-intensive services. The report highlights various innovations with contemporary use cases across the edge computing value chain.

Innovations: presents real-world innovation use cases and examples related to the implementation of edge computing technology by companies across sectors. It casts light on how tech-enabled innovations are developing use cases that are transforming every segment of the sector value chain.


  • Innovation Insights: innovation examples by each use cases segment of various sectors to present key trends.

Reasons to Buy

  • No surprise that technology has been a driving force in business transformation for years, but the term ‘emerging technologies' has all of the sudden become the key catalyst to drive the next wave of innovation across sectors.
  • The sense of urgency weighs differently across different sectors, where the direct customer-facing sectors are at the forefront compared to other capital-intensive sectors. Companies in one sector can take cues from successful innovations in other sectors to either draw analogies with existing products, services, and processes or transfer strategic approaches for a revolutionary transformation.
  • Against this backdrop, enterprises need to understand which emerging technologies are impacting their sector and how various companies are implementing them to meet various challenges.
  • The innovation landscape report on edge computing, published by the publisher as part of an ongoing series, covers some real-world examples to advance the development and implementation of the technology across some major sectors.
