Cloud-centric architectures have been limiting the Architectural Liberum Arbitrium of architects and developers. The Eclipse Edge-Native WG is here to restore your architectural free will.
There are a lot of websites that talk about technology. Very few of those are written by people that make technologies. The goal of Techspectives is provide an authoritative, neutral and uncensored voice to technology makers. In doing so, we hope to help distinguish hype from reality and provide insights on the latest trends.
Early Internet of Things (IoT) applications adopted cloud-centric architectures where information collected from things is processed in a cloud infrastructure and decisions are pushed back from the cloud to things. While this architectural paradigm is suitable for a subset of Consumer IoT (CIoT), it quickly shows its limitation in the context of Industrial IoT (IIoT).
