THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR THE EDGE

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 need to decide how best 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.

Cloud Service Providers

Their focus should be on customers that need access to immediately adjacent infrastructure assets. Cloud providers will eventually include many SaaS providers that aim to extend their 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"
