Pre-Keynote Briefing : The State of the Edge

Keynotes

Defining and divining the edge computing market in 2019 and beyond.

In 2018, the first State of the Edge report outlined the forces driving edge computing and offered a way to define what-and where-edge computing is. In this session, we will look at what has transpired in the last 18 months since its publication and offer a look at where edge computing is expected to gain traction in the months ahead.

We’ll look at:

  • How the Open Glossary of Edge Computing project defines the edge.
  • The evolution of edge computing terminology in 2019.
  • Show new State of the Edge 2019 forecasts for IT spending on infrastructure edge and device edge categories.
  • Show new State of the Edge 2019 forecasts for edge infrastructure power consumption based on location and use cases.
