Where Are We Going At The Edge: A Look Ahead

Available On-demand Until November 4, 2022

Duration:60 minutes


Even before COVID 19, we were talking about The Edge.  Edge Computing, Edge Applications, Edge as a Service, the Edge Data Center, Cloud Edge.  And on and on.  And certainly, The Edge has lived up to its potential, especially as we fight a host of disruptors resulting from the global pandemic

But where do we go from here?  And what is next at The Edge?

This presentation will not look into some mythical crystal ball.  We will not present specific predictions for the future Edge.  Or introduce another new term for what The Edge can do.  Rather, current trends and their impact on The Edge will be reviewed.  And critically – a sense of what we should be looking for from The Edge as we move from this global megatrend on to the next one.

Discussion points will include:
  • Discuss new technology and application disruptors at The Edge
  • Where does The Edge fit in to the new IT landscape
  • Challenges created by Edge solutions – social, economic, operational
  • What’s next (maybe) at The Edge
