techUK is excited to host the online event on Cloud and Edge computing: What do we need to know for 2022 and beyond. Bringing together a host of industry leaders, we will seek to understand which use cases for edge/cloud are leading the way, why the interconnection of the two technologies matter, and different models of edge/cloud deployment. In doing so, we will continue to showcase the integral role that edge computing will play in furthering the future of loud in the UK.

Last year, techUK ran its Edge Computing campaign to understand how edge computing will transform enterprise infrastructure and enable the adoption of other emerging technologies.

A crucial part of this understanding was to address misconceptions around the relationship on cloud and edge computing. The event Exploring the convergence of Edge, Cloud and AI and techUK’s Edge Computing Report help define this relationship in the context of 2020 and how we envision the dynamic of cloud/edge shifting over the coming years.

The relationship of Cloud and Edge continues to surpass expectations: According to Frost and Sullivan projections, about 90% of industrial firms will use edge computing, data analysis, and solution development at the data generation site by the end of 2021.

And, as Gartner suggests, by 2024 most cloud service platforms will facilitate at least a few distributed cloud services that execute at the edge. As organizations rely on distributed environments, with edge computing collecting, processing and reducing vast quantities of data, we need to explore how, when and where the edge/cloud ecosystem will develop in the UK  and what use cases will be crucial for edge/cloud.

This event will seek to answer:

  • What industries and sectors are leading the convergence between cloud and edge? Which use cases are powering this?
  • What are the different models of edge/ cloud, and why does this matter?
  • How can we ensure secure deployment of cloud and edge?

You can book to join the event online now!
