Gartner - How to Overcome Four Major Challenges in Edge Computing
The edge computing use case landscape is broad and its early deployments have been highly customised. Infrastructure and operations leaders will need to develop a multiyear edge computing strategy that addresses the challenges of diversity, location, protection and data.
Infrastructure and operations leaders building a strategy for cloud end edge computing should:
Minimise the attack surface by ensuring that edge computing hardware, software, applications, data and networking have security and self-protection built-in
Invest in technologies that automate data management and governance at the edge as much as possible.
