Governance for smart cities using Edge Computing and Open Data

Citizens and innovators increasingly demand open data, that anyone can access, use and share, to better understand how the city pulses and improve policy decisions.  An effective, secure, non-intrusive and flexible way of providing open data is to leverage edge computing. Edge computing provides a way to deploy realtime services, that avoid data intrusion issues, while enabling an evolutive approach for the city. However, in order to scale and deliver its full innovation potential, edge computing and open data must form the integral part of a governance policy. This blog explores some of the aspects such a governance policy must address and how.

Making the Case for Edge Computing

Are you asking yourself when edge computing makes sense, and when it doesn't? Well, you are the right place. Read on... Why does edge computing matter? Edge computing is a response to the explosion of data produced by IoT, sensors and other new digital sources. The idea is instead of pushing the raw data to the cloud for processing, let’s do the opposite and move the compute near the source of data.  I like to call this near data processing.
