Key Developments in the European Edge Market in 2020
This IDC Market Presentation examines overall trends impacting the European edge market in 2020. It underlines why edge is different from existing IT solutions and why edge is becoming increasingly important across hardware, software, and services. This document examines the importance of focusing on business outcomes enabled through use cases for understanding the potential of the European edge market, its peculiarities, and connections with other technology areas as IT infrastructure, telecoms, and artificial intelligence (AI).
"Edge is the frontier that enables Digital Everywhere," said Gabriele Roberti, research manager, European Customer Insights and Analysis (CI&A) and European Edge Practice co-lead at IDC. "While edge will represent a huge opportunity for market players, finding success will be a challenge as use cases and partnership ecosystems vary dramatically across multiple industries and European countries. Edge is not a one-size-fits-all cookie-cutter approach — rather, it is the opposite, but with opportunities for innovation, differentiation, and margin."
