Edge Cloud in the Public Sector

Fuel innovation by processing data almost instantly at the edge.

EDGE CLOUD IS THE ENABLER FOR FUTURE INNOVATION

As the public sector becomes more dependent on data, the need to process data instantly is increasing. According to the International Data Corporation (IDM) 40% of organisations plan to invest in new edge solutions in less than one year.

By moving applications to the edge, your applications will benefit from reduced latency and improved bandwidth. A digital infrastructure that will facilitate rapid decision making whilst offering an improved user experience for UK citizens.

BRING YOUR DATA CLOSER TO END USERS

Edge Clouds consist of scaled down micro data centres that are brought into closer proximity to its end users. These micro data centres are an extension of existing regions and can be deployed almost anywhere. For example, from a hospital to a city centre, for connected ambulances, through to having central management systems for smart cities.

BETTER, MORE TIMELY DECISION-MAKING

With a stable, low-latency connection, your organisation can take their digital maturity to the next level. Hospitals can live-stream patient data to make faster interventions, whilst local authorities can introduce better, more efficient traffic management systems. The possibilities are almost endless.

And with the most current, up-to-date information at your fingertips, you have all the data you need to deliver the best possible service to end users.

“By 2025, 75% of data will be processed outside the traditional data centre or cloud.”

EDGE CLOUD BENEFITS

Enables real-time decision making

By processing data at the edge, devices and platforms can run analytics locally, without sending data to the cloud first. This unlocks the door to real-time decision making, ideal for applications requiring a lower latency such as traffic flow management and local surveillance.

Support your high bandwidth applications

By handling your data at the edge, the amount of data needing to be transmitted, stored and processed centrally, will be minimised. This will allow your high bandwidth applications to run more smoothly. This is particularly useful for live video streaming services and simulation purposes.

Support uninterruptable workloads from varied connectivity and data mobility

Some applications such as patient monitoring systems and wearable technologies struggle with intermittent connectivity. Edge clouds ensure that your applications and devices run independently without any dependency on wider network connectivity. This enables organisations to drive actionable insight from the data that is being processed.
