Presentation: 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: Edge Computing in the Next Evolution of the Cloud

It’s all happening at the Edge. The explosion of data, the increase in speeds with 5G, the need for enterprises to deliver intelligent and immersive experiences to delight their customers. 30% of the workloads are projected to be deployed at the Edge by FY2025 at a rate faster than public cloud adoption.

This presentation will showcase VMware’s Edge Compute Stack as a single integrated stack that supports:

  • Edge Native Apps built on VMs or Containers or Web Assembly that leverage multi-cloud services
  • Running Standard Server OS, Mobile OS, or Real-Time OS
  • For IT and OT to deliver intelligent real-time solutions
  • Delivered consistently to the far edge enterprise sites and near-edge Telcos and PoPs
  • Deployed securely across both wired and wireless (4G and 5G) networks

The Edge will be as exciting an area of innovation and value creation in the next decade as the cloud was in the last decade.

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.

Case Study : Everything, Everywhere, All At Once: Delivering On The Promise Of Multi-Access Edge Computing

We know that the edge is a new way to optimize, but the challenge of migrating applications and data closer to customers still seems daunting. In this case study, we demonstrated a faster, easier, and cheaper way to distribute to the edge. By using a distributed application and data platform, a leader in connected device ecosystems was able to:

  • Increase API call speed by 250X, from 5 seconds to 10 milliseconds.
  • Reduce the number of API calls by 99%.
  • Improve competitive advantage by being able to control and customize the user experience in real time.
