Industry is seeking simple mechanisms to unleash the potential of Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G at the core of their business operations. This necessarily implicates the use of Edge Computing technologies, which are needed in several key industrial use cases. But even though the emergence of the Edge Computing revolution is imminent, the move toward new edge computing solutions is today limited by the following critical problems: 1) key companies of the industry will NOT engage in an entire transformation or evolution of their IT core systems until new advanced mechanisms are developed} to provide them with a tight control of OPEX; and 2) the current business models do not foresee the additional revenue required to cover the vast expense of deploying edge computing solutions at scale, and therefore there is a need for innovative tools and platforms provide transparent management of the increased heterogeneity, and seamless interoperability.
In this session, we will introduce the NearbyComputing Platform, an orchestration framework, designed to help companies overcome the above-mentioned limitations to adopt the Edge Computing paradigm. Through the unique model-driven approach and seamless interoperability of our solution, companies across diverse sectors (CSPs, Oil & Gas, Industry 4.0, Smart Cities) see their operational costs reduced by simplifying the management of their infrastructure, automating complex processes and introducing new high-value services that could not be deployed before.
