Alibaba, Cisco, Equinix, IBM, Red Hat and The UN just a few names to speak at Edge Asia 2019

Edge will be the most transformative opportunity for the next decade

EDGE Asia 2019

SINGAPORE, Mar 14, 2019 – Edge Asia 2019, powered by Datacloud, will be held on April 11 at the Pan Pacific Hotel, Singapore, bringing you the defining discussion on the Edge and its importance to 5G, as well as addressing the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead in implementing Edge services and networks in the APAC region.

As data is generated at ever more exponential rates, and globally moves us towards the age of Yottabyte, so compute processing power disperses across enterprise, and cloud resources shift closer to the user. Massive amounts of data draw compute in, away from the core, which is the Edge.

The convergence of new technologies and developments such as IoT, 5G, AI, autonomous cars and smart cities, connected things, microdatacenters and Edge facilities, enable new ways of analysing and managing data as well as increasing latency which existing infrastructure would not be able to handle.

With strong market drivers, the shift to Edge represents the most profound change that will impact possibly for decades to come. Early deployment is expected to achieve significant growth globally over the next 5 years with industry predictions of connections to 25 billion devices, and 50 billion installed or embedded sensors.

Welcome to Edge Asia – Powered by Datacloud. Industry experts to debate the Edge in Singapore include:

  • Jonathan Atkin, Managing Director – RBC Capital Markets
  • Dean Bubley, Founder and Director – Disruptive Analysis
  • Gordon Falconer, Chairman Advisory Board – UN United Smart Cities Group
  • Iain Gillott, President – IGR
  • Sunil Gupta, CTO – Communication and Media Industry Vertical, APAC – HPE
  • Dirk-Peter van Leeuwen, SVP & GM APAC & Japan – Red Hat
  • Pradeep Menon, Director of Big Data and AI Solution Architecture – Alibaba Cloud
  • Andrew Rigoli, Vice President, Corporate Development & Strategy – Equinix Asia-Pacific & Interim Country Manager, Singapore

“For two years we’ve been in Singapore for Datacloud Asia. This year we are bringing the Edge Computing discussion to the APAC region, especially after the success of our inaugural Edge Congresses in US and Europe. The event is now Edge Asia, powered by Datacloud,” said Philip Low, chairman of BroadGroup. “This new future-defining event will provide a unique platform to define the Edge and its importance to 5G, and make senior level contacts that will engage and make the most of this business opportunity of the coming decade.”

Attendees will include executives from the cloud, edge, data centre, computing, IoT and data arena. They will gather in one location to attend the seminal discussion on this massive new ecosystem, addressing how infrastructure will be altered through the convergence of current and new technologies such as blockchain, AI, 5G, 4K, 8K, robotics, wearable tech and embedded sensors and their deployment.
