Today’s business landscape is quickly evolving with IoT on the rise and anytime, anywhere, any device mobile user experiences in high demand. The companies that digitally transform to embrace the evolving digital world will succeed, and those that don't will be left behind with catastrophic results. To meet this challenge head on, companies must adjust strategies and embrace the Intelligent Digital Edge.
The digital edge is that space in and around office buildings, hotels, factories, hospitals – virtually any facility where people and devices meet. It’s where users are located, where data is created and consumed, and where applications are shared. This is where the real opportunity is to make digital transformation happen; however, to be effective, the digital edge needs to be transformed through more intelligent solutions.
The exponential explosion in the number and diversity of devices and applications has made one thing abundantly clear – legacy IT architectures and deployment models are simply not adequate. Complexity challenges are overwhelming network, computing, and staff IT resources while the technical demands just keep escalating.
To drive superior experiences, ensure capacity flexibility, and secure uninterrupted service, a new digital edge is needed – one that is driven by intelligence. When designed, deployed, and managed correctly, the Intelligent Digital Edge enables:
- High-performance User Experience: Bridging the physical and digital worlds, experiences at the edge are localized and uniform across all locations. Digital and real-time in nature, it scales to leverage IoT and analytics to drive business outcomes. By being analytics-enabled it drives better user experiences and real-time business decisions.
- Mobile-first Capacity: Capacity has reached critical mass and it is no longer acceptable to provide simple connectivity. Anytime mobility at the edge is required for uninterrupted operations – all with mission-critical performance and on-demand capacity to drive efficient and unhindered operations. The intelligent edge is software-driven to enable mobile workflows while dynamically optimizing capacity and traffic.
- Built-in Security: Theft of data or loss of connectivity can be devastating. The Intelligent Digital Edge has security built in, so you can see and prevent threats and interruptions before they happen. Providing and protecting the edge eliminates downtime and ensures timely decision-making in highly-regulated and latency-sensitive settings.
