Edge is the future of IT, but it still has some growing pains

Although edge computing is growing, it lacks the maturity of cloud. That’s changing. In this podcast, David Linthicum talks with Deloitte's Lisa Noon and Clarify360's Jo Peterson about how research organizations are bringing standards to the edge and how companies are building on that to apply edge computing to more and more real-world situations. The consensus? Edge is a wide-open space with lots of potential, and companies that leverage edge effectively will have a competitive advantage.

Emerging [edge] use cases...can be not only business differentiators, technology differentiators, but they can make a real impact on someone's life.
