Should organizations interested in edge computing wait for a best-of-breed app to emerge?

Top Answer: If you have a use case for being at the edge, don’t hesitate to pursue it. It’s a noisy space, and the solution landscape is frightening in its complexity and diversity, but that shouldn’t stop you. When you have a defined opportunity for an IT solution, even a solution that’s less than perfect is often better than not having one at all.

What’s required to drive edge computing capabilities further?

Top Answer: The opportunities to leverage edge — for new services, saving lives and differentiating with customers — continue to expand in number, but the market can still use help in how it develops and expands. Arguments about market ownership will continue regarding hyperscalers versus others, versus a mix. I hope we have a new set of players to add options to what the hyperscalers bring to the table. The developer experience will be a big part of who wins, which is often the case these days.

What developments lie ahead for edge computing?

Top Answer: One thing I’m seeing that’s different is that edge doesn’t always mean nanoVMs, containers or Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS or Serverless). Deploying at the edge will often mean the use of technologies that allow for small footprint and efficient use applications; however, the opportunities are too numerous to wait for every application to be rebuilt as microservices. For some time to come we will see things like VMs at the edge, similar to mainframes and on-premises IT in private data centers.

Has there been a general standard for edge infrastructure established?

Top Answer: There isn’t one flavor of edge infrastructure today and there likely won’t be just one in the future. The battle for the edge is far from over; the options for how and where to deploy technology solutions for edge are still being explored. But time to value, cost effectiveness and agility will continue to rule for decision makers. The trick is in challenging assumptions on operational management and solution cost. Those who crack the nut on delivering edge without charging a premium for location and overhead will win the day.

How do you keep your cloud infrastructure, applications and data secure in a continuous manner?

Top Answer: Depending on the cloud vendor you use... We use Azure Security Center, Microsoft Defender for Cloud, Azure Sentinel, enhanced with Azure Monitor and Azure Automation so you don't have to do everything manually

Where do you think your organization needs the most help in the Cloud related technologies / solutions?

Top Answer: These votes are interesting. While initially "Cloud native development" was leading in comparison with "Cloud migration", currently it looks like (at 88 votes), "Cloud migration" is leading and the Cloud native development has lagged.   Does that mean Organizations are yet to migrate many of their workloads to Cloud yet (at the end of 2021), and Cloud native development takes a backseat in the priorities overall?
