Possibly. The past decade has been the era of cloud computing, and this year is likely to bear a rise in edge computing with the application of 5G technologies and development of intelligent chips.
The industrial internet will be the breakthrough for edge computing. As standards are issued, a great many firms will start to include edge computing in their plans. Cloud computing is used for non-real-time and long-cycle big data processing and supports long-term business decisions, while edge computing is better suited to processing local, short-cycle data in real time to make data-based decisions. The two combined will form a complete data-processing environment in future.
