Share Article

Information Governance expert reviews the benefits of edge computing and addresses the challenges of managing data at the edge—in a new article from Messaging Architects.

Managing Data at the Edge
Simply put, edge computing refers to processing data closer to where the data is created or consumed. Processing data at the source improves performance but also creates challenges.

Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company and data governance consultant, discusses the challenges of managing data at the edge in a new article on the Messaging Architects website.

The informative article first explains how edge computing helps to save bandwidth by processing data closer to its source. The author then discusses the benefits of edge computing, including decreased latency, increased performance, and improved user experience. Finally, he addresses some of the challenges, including increased complexity, the need for network adjustments and stronger data security.

“Simply put, edge computing refers to processing data closer to where the data is created or consumed,” stated Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at Messaging Architects. “Processing data at the source improves performance, but also creates challenges.”

Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Managing Data at the Edge.”

Benefits of Edge Computing

“When processing happens at or close to the source, machinery and applications respond with greater speed and efficiency. And, since much of the processing occurs locally, only a subset of the data needs to travel across bandwidth.”

“Retail and gaming benefit from consumer apps that respond instantly, improving user experience. And for the much-anticipated autonomous vehicles, analyzing data at the source will prove essential. Edge computing also lays the framework for future developments in the IoT and artificial intelligence.”

Addressing the Challenges of Managing Data at the Edge

“Like any emerging technology, managing data at the edge presents its own challenges. For instance, decentralizing data storage and processing adds complexity. Multiple, smaller data centers require management and monitoring. And network design will need to adjust to accommodate processing of data at the edge.”

Navigate the New Environment with Confidence

As with any emerging technology, organizations need to make adjustments in order to get the most out of edge computing. That involves assessing current data usage trends and preparing for future data needs as influenced by increased dependence on the IoT and AI. This may require adapting networks and security configurations, as well as data governance policies.

Messaging Architects helps business leaders master the complexities of managing data on the edge, determine the optimal mix of cloud and edge computing and manage technology infrastructure accordingly. With deep expertise in network design, network cyber security and information governance, they provide the data governance expertise required.
