Leverage the Edge – the Benefits of Processing Data at the Edge, Not the Cloud

October 5, 2021


By processing data as close to its source as possible, the edge enables quicker, more cost-effective data analysis. Here Martin Thunman, co-founder and CEO of edge analytics platform Crosser, looks at the benefits of processing data at the edge rather than the cloud and how this data can be used to optimize production in manufacturing.

The real-time ability at the edge can leverage automatic changes to production according to a pre-determined algorithm, or be evaluated by equipment operators and facility managers to make informed decisions. For machines that need to act on data in real time, or those that perform critical operations, processing data at the edge results in ultralow latency and allows manufacturers to respond to changes much faster.
