The global edge analytics solutions market comprises of hardware devices, software and professional services that helps in bringing automated analytical computation at the edge of the network. In general, edge analytics is relatively a new term which aims at collecting and analyzing data at the point where it is generated such as sensors, IoT gateways, network switches and other devices. This automated computation at the edge saves time, improves latency and reduces transmission cost of sending data to the cloud servers. The technology has gained momentum with the rising prevalence of IoT connected devices. Industries, such as manufacturing, transportation, and automobile are the most prominent participants of the IoT revolution and generate tremendous amount of operational data which can be difficult and expensive to manage. By processing data at the edge of a corporate network can empower companies to decide if the data is needed to be sent to the cloud or not. This is particularly useful in environments, such as oil rigs, aircraft, CCTV cameras, connected cars, remote manufacturing where there may not be sufficient time to transmit data to a centralized location and wait for the results. Also, edge analytics could prove to be a boon for the remotely located enterprises where there is a shortage of bandwidth to transmit operational data back and forth and hence, edge can efficiently provide computation and analytics capabilities in remote locations.
An IoT gateway plays a very significant role in the deployment of edge analytics in any enterprise. This device acts as a bridge between connected devices and the centralised cloud server. Rising number of devices is consistently pushing the demand for these devices in solving data management issues. The gateway extracts all the sensor data and applies various rule-based algorithms and sends actionable commands to the connected devices in real time.
Currently, edge analytics solutions are extensively being deployed in retail, manufacturing, energy, smart cities, transportation and logistics vertical segments. Some of the major use cases of edge analytics include: retail customer behaviour analysis, remote monitoring and maintenance for energy operations, fraud detection at financial locations (ATMs), and monitoring of manufacturing & logistics equipment.
