10:20 AM PDT Strategic Thinking and Production Execution at the Edge
Many have been trying to build edge-driven solutions. According to Gartner1, through 2022, 50% of edge computing solutions that worked as proofs of concept will fail to scale for production use. The focus has been on the technology, and many have been science projects. If Edge solutions are to be successful, they must start with meaningful business goals, stated early, and measured often. In this keynote, William will provide real-world examples of what we have seen from the Veea Edge Platform perspective, and based on that, he will share his insights on what is needed for edge-driven digital transformation success.
Speaker: William Hurley, Chief Revenue Officer, Veea Inc
10:40 AM PDT The Rural Edge – Land of Opportunity?
Unlocking the promise of technology during the Industrial Revolution 4.0 presents new opportunities and challenges throughout the modern world. But none more than agriculture, the heart of rural America. Faced with the projected food shortage, the agriculture industry, governments and technology outlets are working together to bring advanced precision agriculture solutions and automation to farms and transform into a digital enterprise.
Ultra-reliable 5G connectivity and edge computing are essential digital infrastructure to bring about this transformation. However, these industries exist in traditionally underserved markets where the “digital divide” is real and limits today’s progress. The Rural Cloud Initiative have joined forces with 70 service, technology and applications providers to tackle this challenge.
Join Nancy Shemwell and Venky Swaminathan as they explore the opportunities and challenges of bringing 5G and edge to rural America.
Speaker: Nancy J. Shemwell, COO, Rural Cloud Initiative
Speaker: Venky Swaminathan, CTO Rural Cloud Initiative
11:00 AM PDT The Myth of POC Hell: Lessons Learned from Crossing the Chasm
When end customers decide not to convert market offerings from pilot to a deployment, there are usually a number of causes. However, thought leaders across industries often like to summarize this phenomenon as a nascent market. We hear the term “POC Hell” from many valued members in our edge computing community, but are customers and their “readiness” really the problem?
Join Sam Nagar, former CEO of Pixeom and an early pioneer of edge computing, on a discussion about what makes some entrants to a market experience “POC Hell” while others don’t. As someone who has twice crossed the chasm out of “POC Hell” on the road to edge deployments at 60+ Fortune 500 customers and over a million software installations in his edge career, this keynote session will offer a chance for reflection as we look ahead to the future of edge computing.
Speaker: Sam Nagar, Senior Vice President, Factory Automation, Siemens
