LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
To many retailers, software-defined and edge computing might sound like “in-the-weeds,” technical jargon. However, it’s necessary for organizations to be informed and willing to adopt this tech. With the digital era upon us, there’s no longer time to deal with slow rollouts of new technology or hardware. Retailers need to act fast to meet customer demands for convenience and efficiency. And software-defined edge computing makes this possible.
Many modern applications are adopting a new microservices architecture often based on Kubernetes. All locations in a distributed enterprise will want to take advantage of this as quickly as possible. Edge Computing is designed specifically for this purpose. Just as the cloud hosts microservices technology centrally today, Edge Computing will host whatever microservices technology is required everywhere else and enable rapid adoption.
