2 big mistakes to avoid in edge computing

David Linthicum

More things are being pushed to the edge. Think of the edge as the space between the cloud and whatever device or system is tossing off data. The idea is to do most of the processing at the edge, close to where the data is produced. This approach, called edge computing , provides a much better response time, because there’s no need to send the data back to a central cloud-based data-storage system where it’s processed and then returned all the way back to the device.

Trucks today are computers on wheels. Thanks to modern telemetry systems and other technologies they are constantly communicating data points, such as location, motion or engine status, to various business units and systems of their organization.

The Six Principles of Persuasion

Speaker: Michael Carducci, CTO, Mago:Tech

As senior tech leaders, we often fall prey to thinking that a “good idea” and logical case is sufficient to get the desired response and result. We might be trying to get our CEO on-board with investment in a new technology or a rearchitecture effort, or we might want culture or process changes by our team. Our “good idea” is simply the beginning. An idea must be communicated; a case must be made; and ultimately other people must be persuaded to get onboard. Michael Carducci brings a fascinating background to this webinar. He’s a technologist and regularly works to help senior leaders improve their results. He’s also a professional mentalist and has been a student of psychology, human behavior and the principles of influence for nearly two decades.
