10. Data and analytics at the edge

As more data analytics technologies begin to live outside of the traditional data center and cloud environments, they’re moving closer to the physical assets. This reduces or eliminates latency for data-centric solutions and enables more real-time value. Shifting data and analytics to the edge will open opportunities for data teams to scale capabilities and extend impact into different parts of the business. It can also provide solutions for situations where data can’t be removed from specific geographies for legal or regulatory reasons.
