    Delocalizing intelligence to edge locations seems counterintuitive in the Cloud era, but history has proven to be cyclical also in the IT world. In the last months, “Edge” has been a skyrocketing buzzword, to highlight the fact that transmitting and elaborating data into “the Core” is not always the best choice. As found in recent IDC research, IoT users in Europe have a mixed approach to data processing and are almost equally split between processing data on-premises within a centralized platform (37%) and processing data at the edge on sensors and devices (36%). At the same time, all kind of vendors and Service Providers in the IT space are now adding “Edge” capabilities to their portfolios.

    In this IDC Web Conference Gabriele Roberti, Douglas Hayward, Bruno Teyton from the Edge Computing working team will give an overview on the European Edge Computing scenario, and how this is impacting on and relating to other technologies, like the Internet of Things.

    Some of the key points to be discussed in this webcast will be:

    1. What is “the Edge” and how to classify different types of Edge

    2. How different Edge models intersect with industry deployments and different use cases in Europe

    3. Telcos and edge: unlocking new revenue opportunities and enabling 5G use cases in distributed architectures

  • Big Content Era: IDC Content Marketing and Sales Enablement Briefing Recorded: Jun 14 2018 52 mins

    A large share of B2B buyers decide on whether or not to purchase your product before they meet a sales representative.
    At the same time, communication with customers is increasingly moving to online channels, and the main challenge of the day is not only generating great marketing content but generating high-quality content in general. IDC's recent survey shows that today's marketing teams need to produce ten times more content more than ever before. This is not the result of quantitative priority strategies but rather arises from the need to meet the rising demand for personalized interaction in the growing number of digital communication channels and throughout the lifecycle of the business relationship.

    Join our webinar with Joshua Budd, IDC's associate vice president for consulting in Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (CEMA), while he presents how provocative, fact-based content can make a difference and how to lay the groundwork before the customer is approached by your sales team.

    We will try to answer the following questions:
    • What makes content marketing so effective?
    • Is content really "king" or is this just a buzz term?
    • Can fact-based messaging reliably help convince not only your customers but also your sales team?
    • How can I create a content plan that is useful for various customers’ touchpoints?
