Gartner - The Edge Manifesto-Digital Business, Rich Media, Latency Sensitivity and the Use of Distributed Data Centres

Gartner’s Edge Manifesto calls for placement of content, compute and data centre resources on the edge of the network close to the largest concentration of users. This increase of the traditional centralised data centre model meets the demands of today’s digital business by ensuring low latency issues and a better user experience.


  • Invest in architecture and technologies to improve digital user experience
  • Ensure architecture addresses the three location challenges
  • Leverage best practices from vertical industries that use the Internet to deliver video or rich media

A master plan starts with an elevated awareness of the edge concept in the planning organisation and architect level, above the individual silos of networking, applications, data centre or even individual cloud projects.
