This IDC Market Perspective examines how edge computing is growing within government agencies, and how 5G connectivity and edge-based AI solutions are speeding governments' ability to respond to rapidly emerging data trends, be they related to traffic, police emergencies, or weather."Governments collect more data than any industry," said Shawn P. McCarthy, research director at IDC Government Insights.
