Impact & Opportunities
IoT as a technology has had a significant impact on all forms of smart products and business processes across industries, including retail, manufacturing & logistics, automobile, agriculture, hospitality & transportation, energy & utilities, healthcare, and more.
The global IoT market was worth over $690 billion in 2019, and is expected to surpass $1.2 trillion at a CAGR of 10.53% between 2020 and 2025.
The large-scale deployment of IoT-enabled products and devices has resulted in a growing need for computing power at the edge that can cater to the colossal amounts of data generated by these devices. This, in turn, has given rise to new services, platforms, and solutions that are driven by four key elements:
- Computing Models
- Data Processing Architectures
- Connectivity Requirements
- Solution Development Models
Whether you are an existing IoT user or exploring the ways IoT and edge computing can help transform your business, determining the best suited approach to business maturity level is crucial for an effective and accelerated implementation.

Networking & Connectivity
Data Processing Architectures
Solution Development Models
With the emergence of 5G, service providers and enterprises are preparing for a new generation of dynamic, customized, and profitable business services.
These elements have given rise to distinct architectures depending upon the nature of the industry and use case.
Adopting Edge/IoT Computing Service for Your Enterprise
Edge computing has the power to generate significant competitive advantages for its early adopters across industries. That said, there are several factors to be considered before stepping into the game. The following decision matrix lays out the factors you should assess and analyze to determine the kind of edge architecture and adoption approach that would work best for the unique needs of your business:
ACS Solutions can work with you to determine the suitable architecture for your enterprise based on these parameters and incubate the same within our Edge Center.
