In the Business Insider Spotlight we chat with Dave Cooper. Dave is the Senior Vice President for Lumen Technologies and he shares his expertise outlining edge computing. Edge Computing brings a company’s applications closer to data sources. Designed to deliver nearly zero latency to cover 97% of business demands, the result is a much faster computational speed than cloud services alone can offer. In today’s fast-paced business environment, two or three seconds of delay or latency within a network can seem like an eternity. Businesses thrive on their ability to differentiate themselves in the marketplace, and over the past two decades, businesses have turned to cloud services to boost their performance. But even with all the cloud offers, the bulk of data processing still happens in a traditional, centralized data center. Until now.
