We are in the midst of the biggest challenge to IT since the emergence of the Internet, as businesses scramble to mine actionable insights from everything around us – phones, cameras, cars, appliances, accessories, and industrial sensors. As the world marches toward the 50 trillion Gigabyte data mark, the gap between the data that can be collected and the data that can be analyzed in time to be useful is growing wider by the day.
When it comes to carving out your competitive advantage with the IoT, you can never be too fast or too efficient. In this keynote presentation, Pat McGarry, an early innovator in edge computing and Vice President of Engineering for Ryft, will provide practical insights into the unique challenges associated with IoT data and why it presents so many hurdles to conventional Enterprise and cloud infrastructures. He will also cover new heterogeneous computing architectures that are enabling companies to modernize their information infrastructure to overcome roadblocks to IoT success.
