Edge Analytics has massive Potential Going ahead.
Lisa,

I really liked what you had to say here-


The perpetual questions of what data can be collected, what data should be collected, and how long the data should be retained still apply. The difference is the physical point at which the data should be analyzed and acted upon, which depends on the use-case and on what an organization is trying to achieve.

Undoubtedly,if you did better and more localized analysis with all the IoT Data it would save not just a lot of Bandwidth but Processing power at the Central Locations as well.

@Ashu001: It may increase robustness and speed of response, but I doubt if it is going to result in saving costs. If you have analytics systems at the front end, they require huge processing capabilities along with storage. That comes at a fixed cost and must be present for all "edges" so to say. Having a central system with the analytics software is a far cheaper solution. The infrastucture cost is mostly fixed or semi-variable.

Edge analytics
 

"That's not to say that none of the IoT data will make its way back to a central location, but organizations will have to decide what happens at the edge, at the core, and perhaps in-between"

I think analytics is normally performed on data that's available in huge numbers so that a certain pattern can be traced. This is best suited to be done at the back-end after data for a certain time frame has been gathered. At the front-end or the "edge", I wonder what kind of analytics can be performed and whether there's sufficient stroage and processing capacity to perform the necessary analysis.
