Edge computing is transforming the nation’s defense, emergency management, healthcare, and national security missions—pushing the boundaries of compute beyond the traditional IT enterprise and creating a new framework for data processing. In Booz Allen’s e-book, we explore edge services and its implications and applications for defense IT decision makers and those responsible for field operations.
In this e-book, you’ll learn how edge computing:
- Enables better frontline decision making—increasing warfighter performance and safety
- Achieves a new level of interoperable communications and connectivity for defense organizations through an open framework and common architecture
- Creates a force multiplier to help the U.S. military achieve overmatch
- Involves more than just technical know-how to build and deploy advanced solutions
Today’s frameworks, systems, and architectures can’t keep up with the pace of data creation, and the need to analyze and translate this data into valuable insights. As technology and processing capabilities advance, this IT evolution requires a different processing model—one that edge computing provides.
Using edge services, warfighters, first responders, and others can collect and analyze information wherever they are, with mobile devices and wearables, and in vehicles or from unmanned aerial systems, all without needing access to a cloud or network. In this new model, there’s no more waiting for critical information from a central command. And no person’s success or safety is compromised by intermittent connectivity.
Transforming your organization through edge computing requires an overarching strategy and complex approach that considers not only existing hardware and devices, data processing, analytics, and operations, but also—and perhaps most importantly—the mission itself. With the right tools and expertise, organizations can successfully integrate and deploy edge computing across an enterprise of platforms and systems.
