Getting your edge priorities right
Define your goals and zero in on the edge-based innovation you need to drive your business forward.
As society looks beyond the pandemic, savvy enterprises are pulling out whiteboards and brainstorming ways
they can seize emerging opportunities. They’re thinking about what needs to change in their organizations to
capture these opportunities and what role edge technologies can play.

prioritization, balancing tradeoffs of the options available and their potential benefits and the opportunity costs of
paths not taken.

choose technologies that serve those goals, and move to an operating model that connects the two.
