Gartner calls the latest edge driving 5G and internet of things a strategic tech trend for 2019.

Edge computing is at the top of tech bingo terms for yet another year. Gartner Inc. recently announced that it expects that in the next five years, “empowered edge” will be moving everything from internet of things to 5G: “Cloud computing and edge computing will evolve as complementary models with cloud services being managed as a centralized service executing, not only on centralized servers, but in distributed servers on-premises and on the edge devices themselves.”

Here’s a roundup of Superuser articles pushing those edgy boundaries.
