Chair’s Opening Remarks


Keynote: Accelerating Transformation with Edge Computing – 2022 State of Edge, Where are We?

Edge Computing allows IT leaders to run mission-critical applications and infrastructure outside the four walls of the datacenter. Edge deployments need a high degree of automation and low touch IT management, and must be cost effective with a measurable Return on Investment (ROI).

It is predicted that by 2025, three-quarters of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed at the edge – outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud (up from just 10% in 2018). Will you be ready to take advantage of the benefits edge computing offers?

In this session attendees will learn:

  • Use cases of how IT leaders in all industries are using Edge computing to meet their business needs.
  • Which kind of infrastructure platform is needed to be successful?
  • How to reduce management costs by 60%-80% with self-healing automation and intelligence.
  • Why Edge computing is a necessary complement to IoT and AI.
  • Innovative use cases for Edge computing.


Presentation: Is Edge Computing the Missing Piece in the Innovation Jigsaw?

  • As an industry, how do we make the best of the opportunity Edge offers?
  • What are the challenges for this ecosystem?
  • What are the emerging architectures?
  • What are the go-to-market models?


Panel Discussion: Enabling Your Organization’s Edge Computing Transformation Journey

  • Perspectives on the Edge landscape right now.
  • What questions still need to be answered about the efficacy of this technology?
  • Use cases and demos of how Edge is impacting our clients.
  • Future roadmap toward widespread adoption of intelligent Edge.
