The global 5G-enabled edge computing market is growing rapidly, fueled by major technology changes that are disrupting the traditional networking industry. By 2025, this market is expected to exceed $50 billion. 5G has the potential to deliver a new generation of services, thanks to higher data rates and ultra-low latency. To take advantage of this potential, communications service providers are looking to move data processing and compute power closer to the end user — closer to the edge. While the digital boom provides many opportunities for IT leaders, it comes with challenges: a growing number of smart devices, the need for faster processing and increased pressure on enterprise networks. To harness all this potential power, organizations need to modernize their networks to effectively consume these new services at the edge. Some key trends are empowering this shift toward the 5G-enabled edge.

In my discussions with clients about their journey to cloud, it’s becoming evident that many of them are viewing cloud as a goal, instead of looking at cloud deployments as a capability. In some cases, line-of-business owners are under corporate pressures to “adopt” a cloud-first strategy. A recent Forrester Consulting study commissioned by IBM, “The Key To Enterprise Hybrid Multicloud Strategy” suggests that “75% [of 350 surveyed global decision makers] have received pushback while advocating for strategies outside of cloud environments.” The result of this, unfortunately, is the lack of continued investment on their on-premises (“on-prem”) environments. From my experience, this type of deployment focus may not yield the expected results. We shouldn’t think about problem solving as “To cloud or not to cloud?” Instead, we should ask ourselves, “What is the problem I’m trying to solve?” and “Are cloud deployments (public or private) going to optimize my solution?”

Planning needs a rethink. Else, IT leaders risk hobbling their companies’ growth potential or becoming blindsided by risks. For many, justifying an IT decision to the CFO or the Board begins with a business case. Often, they use the total cost of ownership (TCO) to convince. Using return on investment (ROI) goes a step further than IT costs and savings, and looks at user efficiency and business effectiveness. Both measures fall short on correctly highlighting the true impact to the business of an enabling technology or infrastructure. Either the metric is too narrow, the timeline is too short, or the investment is not mature enough. It warrants a more holistic approach that looks at multiple aspects of risks, costs and benefits, and compares different components of ROI.
