Panel discussion: Defining Edge For All Stakeholders: Where Is The Value, And What Groundwork Needs To Be Put in?

Edge computing represents a great opportunity for many participants in the tech ecosystem, but they cannot do everything alone. Cloud companies are teaming up with telecom providers to combine infrastructure strength with network capability – and the race is on to get developers building applications which make the most of 5G and AI, enabled by edge technologies.

  • Defining edge as a value proposition for cloud and telecoms
  • Exploring the partnerships already taking place
  • Using AI to improve performance of edge devices
  • What applications will result from this, and who will ultimately win the race?

Keynote: Edge Computing – The Future is Here Now!

We have all imagined a future where factories are more productive; where workers are safer; and where we leave a lighter and more sustainable footprint on our world. Well, that vision is now a reality for leading enterprises that are realizing the benefits of edge computing today. In this talk we will examine one use case where the convergence of AI, wireless connectivity, and edge computing enables us to fulfill those future ideals.

Keynote: Beyond the Edge – Enterprise Capability Planning

The introduction, adoption and evolution of cloud computing in the Enterprise has been dogged by misinformation, hazy definitions and failed assumptions. As the infrastructure to support Edge computing becomes more widely available, we’re seeing a similar ’signal to noise’ problem in understanding this ‘new’ paradigm and identifying clear strategies for Enterprise adoption. This talk presents a playbook for Enterprise adoption, based on a world where we no longer discuss ’the edge’ as a discrete facility or layer but simply assume it’s ubiquity and availability as part of a connected overall capability we continue to optimise through the next generations of our Enterprise cloud evolution strategies.
