Future-Proofing Retail: Adapting to change with edge to cloud computing

10th July 2024

What if you could anticipate the needs of customers and employees in-store, streamline experiences and deliver a wealth of efficiencies? This is retail powered by edge-to-cloud computing, an approach that combines the strengths of local processing in devices (edge) with centralised computing power (cloud). Just as our brains rely on senses and a central processor to make sense of the world, edge-to-cloud connects devices (senses) with the cloud (brain) to create a smarter, more responsive retail.

This blog explores how edge-to-cloud computing is transforming retail, using the self-checkout as an example and explaining its core concepts through a brain-body analogy.
