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?

Presentation: A Guide to Achieving Cloud-Like Operations for Your Distributed Edge Deployments

We see IT and platform teams struggle with putting together and operating solutions for managing container applications at their on-prem edge. In-house integrations commonly lead to fragmented solutions that are costly to manage and don’t provide the comfortable experience that application teams expect. In this presentation, we follow our protagonists from the IT- and application teams on their journey to build an on-prem edge infrastructure that provides a delightful and cloud-like experience.
