Keynote: Covid-19’s Impact on the Edge Computing Market

  • The edge computing market is quickly shifting from theoretical concept to one of value-maturity — where enterprises are actively exploiting and gaining real business advantage at the edge. This maturation has been further propelled by Covid-19 which, amongst its many impacts, has magnified the urgency to transform digital business paradigms. In this talk we will outline some of the key trends and solutions of digital business transformation that are benefiting from edge computing. We will also identify some of the risk factors in that path to transformation, and suggest ways to mitigate those risks.
