Members of the CPLANE.ai leadership, John Casey and Robert Keahey will be keynote speakers at an event on May 15th, for the IEEE Santa Clara Valley Chapter. More details about how to attend the event are forthcoming, so stay tuned. In the meantime, please review the speaking session overview and Contact Us if you are interested in speaking more.
Enabling Digital Transformation at the Edge
The “Edge” is exploding all around us! According to Gartner, the global market for edge computing is expected to grow to $6.7 billion by 2022, up from about $1.5 billion in 2017. This unbridled growth is presenting significant opportunities, and challenges, for enterprises and service providers.
Digital Transformation is top-of-mind with most CxOs. Either they rapidly innovate to take advantage of the massive edge computing opportunity, or they quickly get left behind. But, the challenge of innovation lies not only in the technology, but also in the transformation of existing IT tools, processes, resources and organizations.
The scope, scale and complexity of edge computing bring new levels of challenges to digital transformation. While edge computing devices are becoming more and more powerful, they still lack all the resources they will need to deliver real-time OODA (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act) applications for autonomous vehicles, Industrial IoT, smart buildings, video surveillance/processing, immersive experiences and augmented reality for retail to name a few. On top of that, the massive amounts of data edge computing will produce has to be dealt with in terms of analytics, learning, security and data sovereignty.
The question now becomes not “how do I scale up?”, but rather “how do I scale out and scale across to get the right resources, in the right amount, at the right place, at the right time?” A new breed of Edge clouds is rapidly emerging to enable digital transformation to reach beyond traditional public and hybrid clouds.
In this session, CPLANE.ai will discuss their insights and perspectives into the rapidly growing edge cloud market, including several industry use cases. They will also share some of the challenges of delivering resources in a hyper-distributed cloud model while maintaining an integrated end-to-end service continuum. Then they will discuss how they are using their novel approach to intelligent closed-loop orchestration and automation to help customers move from traditional “clouds for humans” to “clouds for machines” for edge computing.
