IDC's Worldwide Edge Spending Guide Taxonomy, 2022: Release V1, 2022
This IDC study defines the forecast inclusions and relevant taxonomical details of IDC's Worldwide Edge Spending Guide (SG) and is to be used as a companion document of the same. Technology vendors and suppliers can use this document as reference resource for taxonomy changes from the previous version of the edge SG forecast, understanding forecast overlap with other IDC Spending Guides, methodological approach, and more.
"The value of edge is the movement of computing resources to where the data is created, which reduces time to value and the rapid enablement of business processes, intelligence, and decisions outside of the core IT environment," says Marcus Torchia, research vice president, IDC's Data and Analytics Group. "IDC's Worldwide Edge Spending Guide taxonomy and companion forecast in the IDC's Worldwide Edge Spending Guide are a culmination of pan-IDC research and analyst collaboration that enlightens clients to the technology buyer outlook in this characteristically dynamic market."
