By analysing data and developing solutions at the site where the data is generated, intelligent edge reduces latency, costs, and security risks, thus making the associated business more efficient. The three major categories of intelligent edge are operational technology edges, Internet of Things edges, and information technology edges.
Using intelligent edge technology can help maximise a business’s efficiency. Instead of sending data out to a data centre or other third party, analysis is performed at the location the data is generated. Not only does this mean this analysis can be performed more quickly, but it also decreases the likelihood that the data will be intercepted or otherwise breached. Additionally, it means that businesses become much more self-contained and do not rely on potentially faulty network connections to do their work.
While upgrading to intelligent edge technology can pose significant upfront cost, the automatic analysis it performs stands to increase revenue and save money over the long term.
Here are the Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, technologies and solutions that lend themselves to creating an intelligent edge.

Build your business case for HPE Aruba technology with these use cases
Identify what's on your multi-vendor wired and wireless network.
Identifying what is on the network is the first step to securing your data. Control through automated policy enforcement ensures that only authorised and authenticated users and devices are allowed to connect to your network. At the same time, real-time attack response and threat protection is required to secure and meet the internal and external audit and compliance requirements.
Locating high value assets just got easier.
Aruba’s groundbreaking asset tracking solution can help you quickly locate business critical devices or inventory —like wheelchairs or pallets of retail goods — so your staff can focus on more important things. With BLE-enabled Aruba Tags and your existing Aruba wireless network, deployment is fast and easy.
Make your app location-aware.
Aruba bridges the gap between a physical and digital world to take your app to the next level. Blue dot and asset tracking connect items around you, while proximity-based notifications mean you can inform or promote from any location.
