With growing data volumes and a need for realtime data, cloud-centric solutions, where data storage and processing is done centrally, do not suffice anymore in many IoT scenarios. Edge computing, meaning decentralized data storage and processing, bring back autonomous apps that are independent from the cloud and extend it symbiotically.


Edge computing brings realtime processing, reduced cloud costs, offline-capability and heightened security to IoT. It also enables clear data ownership - with data staying where it belongs, namely with the users and where it was produced.


However, solving edge computing is still a challenge in many respects:

From a developer perspective as small devices come with many constraints.

From a business perspective, because data ownership is part of many business models.
