As digital business landscape needs evolve a multi-cloud adaptation to edge computing will become increasingly important. Gartner explores how the topology of networked data centers will evolve over the next five years from a centralized mega data center approach to one augmented by multiple smaller sources to optimize end user experience.

Learn how to make edge computing successful:

  • Invest in architecture and technologies
  • Collaborate cross-functionally
  • Leverage best practices from vertical industries

I&O leaders who plan to migrate some or all applications to cloud services must continue to support robust, traditional data center capabilities until applications can be renovated, modernized and moved to cloud-based technologies.
