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 gathered enterprises, telcos, data centre operators, cloud service providers, analysts and an array of edge and IoT solution providers all looking to claim their place at the edge. The whole edge ecosystem came together for the first time 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

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

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

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
