Edge is one of the hottest topics in technology right now. An increasingly distributed society, workforce, and reliance on digital interactions have driven edge to the forefront of conversation as business faces challenges with security and delivery of the digital services that connect us all.
From gaming to natural resources, from banking to retail, from education to public services, the use of edge is seen as a means to improve application performance and optimize data-processing based architectures. Our annual research tells us edge is not just a potential future location, but one that is already hosting a variety of application security and delivery workloads for 15% of organizations.
The potential value in utilizing remote compute to reach new users – whether humans or machines – is high, but as with any technology there are challenges.
F5 CTO Geng Lin will join networking expert Nick Lippis of ONUG and Koch Business Solutions CTO Matt Hoag on May 6 at 10:20am EST to discuss the shifts in application and cloud architectures toward the edge and the business value potential and execution challenges it can create.
The event is free to attend and we hope you’ll join us for what is sure to be an interesting and informative discussion!
