Data Economy to Explore Disruptive Nature of Edge Computing at New London Forum

Announcement of a new Data Economy Event: ‘The Edge of Tomorrow’.

29th August 2017 – London - As part of its drive to bring coverage of the IT infrastructure sector to a new level, Data Economy has announced a series of forums covering major topics of strategic business value.

The first Data Economy Forum, The Edge of Tomorrow, will cover the unassailable march of edge computing and will be held on the 15th of November 2017 at the Ham Yard Hotel, Soho, in the heart of Central London.

Attracting expert speakers, the evening meeting will also provide an outstanding opportunity to network with the leadership of data centre and cloud innovation and their enterprise customers.

“The global discussion on edge computing is still at an early stage, focused on implementation and deployment, where to build, and how to finance new network developments. Edge supports cloud rather than replaces it – the possibilities are potentially endless,” said the editor of Data Economy João Marques Lima

“Tomorrow is happening today, residing at the edge of the digital economy, with edge data centres the new oil refineries of this revolution,” continued Lima.

With demand set to explode, those ahead of the game will be in position to reap the rewards and it is to that end that Data Economy is hosting the new forum to debate customer demand, technology requirements, finance and costs.

By hosting forums to explore the innovations which are set to send IT infrastructure on a new path will accelerate the content portfolio and extend the news offering of Data Economy.

“The new forum series is great news for our partners and customers,” said Philip Low, chairman of BroadGroup. “Data Economy is targeted at senior executives and business decision makers in operators, providers and enterprises, and investors offering insight into the booming data industry and the advent of Edge Computing.”

  • TV and Satellite Broadcasting companies
  • IT infrastructure executives in financial services, pharmaceutical, healthcare, oil and gas services, logistics companies, auto manufacturers
