Unleashing Datacenter Capabilities at the Edge

Panel Abstract: IT in the datacenter has been refined for decades — with mature management practices,  the abstraction of the cloud, and the first location for high performance computing innovation. As datacenter class IT capability shifts out to the edge and IoT deployments, suppliers must respond by augmenting their offerings to operate at the edge. Join CBT, SAS, Red Hat and Zebra, as they discuss the changes and adjustments they’ve made to their products and services, to accommodate the many challenges at the edge not seen in the data center. Speakers: Kelly Ireland founded CBT in 2001 as a value-added reseller...

Hyper Cloud – The Future of Edge Cloud

Session Abstract: In today’s cloud computing world we have a well-understood model of execution and delivery for the cloud; any workload, any footprint, and any location. The problem space is neat and confined to an on-prem or off-prem cloud hosting data and consumable applications with standard interfaces such as desktops or phones. To bring the edge into the cloud computing world requires a new paradigm as the complexities are by orders of magnitude more challenging. The edge problem space starts with the understanding that all edge services are either revenue-impacting and/or safety-critical which implies a zero tolerance for risk. Breaking...

Day 1 Closing panel hosted by Dr. Adam Drobot – Sustainability and The Internet of Things: Translating Technology into Action

Session Abstract: Much of the discourse about sustainable development was launched by the Brundtland Report [1]. The report addressed the future of human existence on the planet and the impacts on society, the environment, culture, and economics [2]. The roadmap for progress in the future is voiced in the Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) [3] that relate a more granular view to desirable, but still vague, traits, behavior, and outcomes. The SDGs have seen considerable attention from public institutions and industry. This includes many major corporations that have adopted plans of their own to meet Sustainability Goals [4]. Recognizing that over...

From a Vicious to a Virtuous Circle

Session Abstract: The board of directors is under pressure to improve security of their operations. However, production teams are straining to meet production goals, achieve sustainability mandates, and deal with supply chain constraints, for which they are digitizing their operations rapidly to increase flexibility. IT teams, mindful of the additional security risks that this digitization brings may add firewalls to restrict this free flow of information. But this restriction can also defeat the very purpose of digitization, with the result that trust between IT and OT teams erode, future digitization attempts are stymied, leading to a vicious circle, and the...
