Extending the Cloud to the Edge: Guide to Using IoT Data to Drive Digital Transformation

Date: Thursday, October 17th at 11:00am PT / 2:00pm ET

By 2021 some estimates show the data generated by IoT devices each year will be 500x times more data than is stored in all the clouds combined. This has made the emergence of the intelligent edge inevitable. Simple, scalable, and secure edge computing is the only path to success for any Digital Transformation effort that includes IoT data.

In this webinar, speakers from The Linux Foundation, Microsoft, and ZEDEDA will explore what it takes to implement an edge infrastructure today that can accommodate IoT scale and support business requirements by creating a cloud native, intelligent edge. We will discuss:

  • How IoT and AI have changed what can happen at the edge and where legacy systems fall short
  • With Azure IoT as a basis for the intelligent edge, how does one extend cloud intelligence to edge devices and its practical use cases
  • Why Open Source is critical to addressing the huge diversity of hardware at the edge and creating standards to address that diversity (LF Edge)
