Edge Data and Categorizing the Edge Marketplace

IoT Slam 2020 Keynote: Edge Data and Categorizing the Edge Marketplace

Session Abstract:

What are the differences between the multitude of edge offerings in the market today? In this session I will describe the features enterprise-grade edge software must have to effectively manage and process edge data for several industries including transportation, aerospace, agriculture, construction, and chemical processing. Edge computing is at the forefront of technology but what actually is edge computing and what capabilities does an “edge” need to have? Depending on your frame of reference the term “edge” can mean many different things. Some edge offerings are hardware based, some refer to cloud infrastructure, and yet others refer to edge orchestration architectures from big companies like Microsoft and IBM. I will illustrate how can you differentiate between these offerings an make the right decisions for your organization.
