Complexity is harming application performance. Discover a network strategy that puts applications first

In a world where slow is the new down, a network that just keeps up with the business is not enough. More than ever, networks impact application performance and influence business outcomes from app velocity to operational efficiency and new service deployment at scale.

 

Further, leaders face the arduous task of introducing AI to somehow help with automation while navigating hyper-distributed infrastructures out of the direct control of networking and infrastructure teams. Simply put, complexity is harming app performance. It’s why leaders must shift to an application-centric networking strategy to grow their business. Join IBM for an insightful conversation about improving business outcomes through a network strategy that puts applications first.

Discovering the Final Turtle: Understanding the Landscape of the Cloud Native Industrial Edge

 

The most diverse and expansive wave of the Edge landscape is upon us.  In this keynote, we’ll explore the multifaceted challenges of cloud-native IoT and the pivotal role of open source in surmounting the obstacles within this crucial, foundational layer of the Edge; Driving new business value, fostering rapid innovation, and paving the way for a more interconnected and efficient industrial future.  

  • The ‘tiny edge,’ encompassing Industrial IoT hardware, protocols, discovery, integrations, and management, often presents massive complexity   
  • We believe that we’ve identified the ‘final turtle’ in the stack—a foundational layer of IIoT that brings its own set of challenges yet offers a base for innovation.

Presentation: Doing edge without breaking the bank

From healthcare to oil and gas, telco to retail, mature organizations are betting big on Kubernetes at the edge and AI is a big driver behind it.

While different use cases mean different stacks, from the hardware and distro to the OS, when their first proofs of concept hit the field, they’ve all encountered the same key challenge; cost. In this session we’ll dive into the real life cost challenges of edge and how to overcome them, using examples from our customers.

Charmed by Linux, haunted by VMs: Living a container-first lifestyle at the edge   

Containers are moving to the edge and for good reasons.  

  • While containers certainly are the application packaging format that offers the highest possible level of simplicity, agility, and ease of use, there are usually old grudges at the edge that need to be taken into consideration along the journey. 
  • In this session, we’ll dig into how to design a container-first strategy for your distributed on-site edge environments that allows you to benefit from the value of containerization, while migrating VMs and legacy applications in a calm and controlled manner.  
  • A revolution doesn’t happen overnight and the rise of container application at the edge is no exception. But purpose-built tooling can truly pave the way, and during this presentation, we’ll share actionable advice to make it happen

Beyond Limits: Unlocking IT’s Next Frontier with Action AI™

As AI spreads across industries and use cases, the introduction of AI-powered IT (AIT) signifies a paradigm shift for IT professionals, their role within the organization, and the broader technological landscape. Embracing AIT drives unparalleled cross-organizational efficiency, reducing time to resolution from hours to mere seconds and elevating team productivity. In this session, we will explore the potential ahead with the growing adoption of AI, including in the context of edge computing, and examine its intersection with the needs of technicians, teams, and management.
