Ovum: Edge computing set to grow with convergence of five technologies

Edge computing is a growing technology field that exploits computing at local and edge locations before typically connecting and communicating with the cloud. Often this has to do with the sheer volume of data generated at the edge and which would not be feasible or sensible to send to the cloud when it can be first processed at source before sending select data to the cloud. The setting up of the Linux Foundation Edge (LF Edge) by the Linux Foundation in January 2019, follows the success of its Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and has already attracted more than 60 premier and general-level members and onboarded several open source projects.

Arpit Joshipura explains why LF Edge was needed, who it serves, which projects are anchoring it, and how edge computing impacts a wider variety of industries every day.
