In recent years, the public sector has used cloud computing and data centres to process and store critical data. Even more recently, edge computing has emerged to assist with these practices, distributing data collection, processing and storage across the ‘edge’ of the network.
Edge computing allows for raw data to be processed closer to the point of collection by leveraging edge-based technologies. From wearable sensors, to satellites, mobile data centres, cell sites and sonar technologies, the opportunities to implement edge computing in the public sector are vast. Edge-based technologies create interoperable IT ecosystems that integrate the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and data centres to reduce processing time and decentralise storage. Edge computing also enhances analytics by providing real-time insight into raw data, tackling periodic surges in processing and allowing government to better manage seasonality or unpredictability.
Public Sector Network’s Virtual Edge Computing for Government Summit will explore how edge-based technologies can assist in data collection, computation and storage. By reviewing emerging government initiatives, enterprise architects and IT systems professionals can enhance existing best-practice by creating a distributed computing topology, combining existing infrastructure with the technologies on the edge.
