Analytics and AI on the edge

Issue 2 2022 Infrastructure

Analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) are proving to be a very valuable tool for customers to improve their security posture as well as the operational efficiency of their business.

The additional business intelligence (BI) provided, especially by edge analytic devices are allowing customers to adapt their processes and procedures to the next level and have huge advantages in terms of profitability and customer experience benefits.

Edge analytics, in terms of facial recognition/collection or licence plate recognition, allows companies to gather intelligence and build up databases that will give them the ability to differentiate their product and services from mainstream competitors. Edge analytics is not only efficient and responsive but also has some key benefits in terms of data and communication costs associated with these offerings.

Companies that use edge analytics gain much deeper insights into customers' demographics and behaviour. These features have proven to become more valuable as they are being integrated into normal business processes and procedures.
