With the explosion of machine learning and analytics in industrial and business applications, companies are looking for new ways to exploit the data they’re constantly generating, and to do so as near to real-time as possible. That means placing compute power close to the action, next to the assets and devices that generate that data – at the Edge –, to avoid the delays involved in relaying data to the cloud or the core data center.
What can Edge computing do for your organization? Here’s a great opportunity to find out. Join us for a free webinar Beyond the IoT hype: Can I get more from my real-time data with edge computing? on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 9 am PST/12 pm EST. This is the second episode in a series of webinars presented by Futurum Research and sponsored by HPE and Intel (see my post for info on the previous webinar in September).
Futurum Research is a global research and advisory firm that specializes in data-driven insights for the age of digital disruption. Principal Analyst Daniel Newman (@DanielNewmanUV) will be joined by HPE’s Gerald Kleyn, Senior Director of Product Management, Operations and Systems R&D for Converged Edge Systems. Daniel and Gerald will discuss what has been involved in successful deployments of edge computing by customers and what it means to converge IT and OT.
Even further, Daniel and Gerald will share results from a Futurum Research survey study that throws light on some of the big questions for decision-makers considering an Edge initiative:
What’s driving businesses to edge computing, and how can I automate processes and data collection?
How will edge computing enable video analytics, predictive maintenance, and augmented reality, using techniques like artificial intelligence?
What does adding an edge layer mean to the manageability and security of my infrastructure, and who owns this responsibility (IT, OT, LOB, or someone else)?
What do successful deployments look like? What problems were solved? How did they get started?
How does edge analytics help bridge the worlds of operations and information technologies?
