Cloud, Edge and IoT represent three major, interconnected technology trends enabling the digital transformation of European organisations and economies. Via these dashboards and infographics you can learn more about the key findings and the most interesting data from our CEI market analysis.
This section presents the most common use cases observed in the key verticals of the CEI. This section highlights selected use cases and some of their typical requirements that might lead to various decisions about the cloud-edge compute continuum.
European actors have a high-level familiarity with Cloud and IoT technologies. Familiarity with edge lags the other two, though industries generally display some familiarity. As a result, edge has become a significant concept in the technology space.
This section presents the most common drivers of CEI technologies, also divided by the five main industrial sectors under scrutiny: agriculture, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation.
This section presents the most common barriers of CEI technologies, also divided by the five main industrial sectors under scrutiny: agriculture, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation.
Sovereignty plays a significant role in influencing vendor decisions for CEI solutions. In general, companies mostly prefer for technology providers to be locally based. However, it is worth noting that while there were generally similar responses within the healthcare industry, a larger percentage (28%) expressed no preference for the vendor’s location.
The cloud-edge IoT continuum involves computing infrastructure and using sensor data through comprehensive solutions. Important technologies for CEI plans include 5G networks, big data, and analytics.
