WE'RE GOING FULLY VIRTUAL

We have been continuously reviewing the best way to serve our edge computing community over the past couple of months. As the global situation with COVID-19 continues to be carefully managed, we feel it is in the best interest of our community, many of whom travel internationally to attend, to now move forward and transform The Edge Event into an online, fully virtual event for 2020.  

We believe the need for the edge computing community to connect, inform and innovate is stronger than ever, and we are committed to adapting The Edge Event into a virtual format. With the experience we have at Informa Tech with our digital communities, we are confident we will deliver the same level of high-quality content, learning and networking that our attendees have come to expect every year.  

More details coming soon...watch this space!

WHAT IS THE EDGE EVENT?

The new decade has been earmarked as a key turning point for edge computing and those already in the know are anticipating an explosion of edge interest, deployments and solutions. That's where The Edge Event comes in.

The Edge Event will gather 1000+ enterprises, telcos, data centre operators, cloud service providers, analysts and array of edge and IoT solution providers all looking to claim their place at the edge. The whole edge ecosystem will come together for the first time this September for 3 days of innovation, networking and discussions to define the future of edge computing.

The Edge Event is supported and built by the industry, guided by our expert team across Omdia and Informa Tech, as well as our knowledgeable Edge Advisory Board

THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR THE EDGE


Enterprises
Enterprises

With the explosion of IoT devices in use across multiple industries, enterprises need an increasingly distributed and flexible network infrastructure to manage their data. Edge computing meets this requirement and unlocks the true value of IoT.

Telcos
Telcos

The telcos need to decide to invest in edge services and should be focusing on specific use cases, a strategic set of ecosystem partners, and business models that are realistic for their business and relationship with their customers.

Data Centre Operators
Data Centre Operators

Their focus should be on customers and providers that need access to immediately adjacent infrastructure assets. Cloud providers will eventually include many SaaS providers that aim to extend applications to the edge, with many hybrid alternatives.

WHAT WILL THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 LOOK LIKE ACROSS THE CLOUD & DATA CENTRE ECOSYSTEM?

To help inform our community at this uncertain time, the Edge Event is delighted to offer free access to this new Omdia report, which examines the market impact of COVID-19, specifically on the data center pillar of the ecosystem.

"The distribution of compute to the edge (Enterprise, Telco, and Cloud SP), partially enabled by the 5G roll-out, to serve low latency and low bandwidth use cases is driving new innovations in computing and networking. The Edge Event is set to become one of the most important hubs for the global edge community - a place where the industry can collaborate to help meet the needs of the evolving edge ecosystem"

Introducing: The Edge Event Advisory Board

Our advisory board of edge leaders are busy curating an agenda designed to answer the key questions for enterprises who are looking take their first step into the edge, as well as to consider complex technical questions around edge deployment for industry experts.
