Edge Computing: Essential for the IoT

This paper analyzes the benefits that organizations can get from edge computing, which compared to the cloud allows them to capture and process real-time data near the source, also benefiting AI devices that do not always have access to the cloud but are reliant on data processing to make decisions.

Edge computing and cloud computing, however, are not mutually exclusive, since in designing an IoT system they complement one another: by combining the data-gathering potential of edge computing with the storage capacity and processing power of the cloud, IoT devices can run efficiently without companies sacrificing valuable analytical data.

EDGEHOG, the all-in-one IIoT solution powered by SECO, is an optimized solution for machine learning at the edge, allowing to easily maintain connected embedded systems by remotely making available all the information of connected devices and facilitating system updates and configuration changes.
