Edge Computing
Edge computing is computing that's done at or near the source of the data, rather than relying on a central data-processing warehouse.

Edge computing is computing that's done at or near the source of the data, rather than relying on a central data-processing warehouse. It reduces latency and bandwidth use, and is crucial for real-time applications. Edge computing is increasingly relevant for the DoD in its push towards IT modernization. By processing data near its source, edge computing reduces latency and improves response times in critical military operations. This technology supports the DoD's goal of leveraging real-time data analytics and decision-making in the field, enhancing operational efficiency and situational awareness.
