Take your business to the edge

Intelligent edge

The next frontier in business innovation is at the intelligent edge — a convergence of devices, local computing, and artificial intelligence/machine learning models that enables real-time outcomes and accelerates decision-making capabilities. Let Insight be your partner in this new landscape.

What’s possible? Everything.

Traditional architectures are focused on the data center. Modern architectures incorporate cloud and hybrid cloud, converged solutions, and potentially solutions like containers.

The intelligent edge extends the perimeter to new places — factory floors, corn fields, retail stores, wind turbines, surgical units, coal mines… nearly anywhere you could imagine. Organizations are capitalizing on these capabilities to gather information about people, places, products, and workflows that can then be analyzed and used to improve decision-making and drive business impacts.

Although some aspects of the intelligent edge mirror traditional approaches, there are a myriad of novel considerations.

  • What are appropriate use cases for the edge?
  • What hardware, software, and networking specifications are ideal?
  • How can you ensure security across the intelligent edge?
  • What does data storage look like in intelligent edge solutions?

Go from idea to execution with Insight. Our team can support you through use case identification, strategy, architecture and design, deployment, testing and optimization, and monitoring and management — the full spectrum of realizing your intelligent edge.
