With the adoption of IoT, connected applications and systems are moving to the cloud.
The number of end-devices and data generated on the cloud is also increasing. Edge devices like sensors, mobile devices, wearables, robots, and many other connected devices in IoT ecosystem generate a huge amount of decentralized data.
Due to lack of reliable connectivity, delays and difficulties in processing this huge data on cloud, there is a challenge in analyzing and extracting important insights from this data. To deal with this challenge, enterprises are leveraging edge analytics along with cloud computing.
This combination brings stability in the IoT network by bringing the computational power near to the source of data and reducing the delays in analytics, resulting in real-time insights and resolutions for the problems of various industries. In other terms, when data cannot be taken to the algorithm, edge analytics brings algorithms to the data and provide important insights.
