1st Session | 9:00am ET / 2:00pm GMT 

2nd Session | 2:00pm ET / 7:00pm GMT 

Join Jim White, IOTech CTO and recognized industry expert for the latest instalment in IOTech’s Webcast Series as he discusses the problem of managing edge deployments at scale.

As IoT adoption gathers speed an increasing number of projects are moving from small scale pilots to large scale rollout. At the edge users face a unique set of management challenges when deploying systems consisting of 100s or possibly 1000s of edge nodes.  During the presentation Jim will tackle key edge management issues by focusing on approaches to managing both the nodes and the their connected devices/sensors, as well as the applications that will be deployed on these nodes.

 The session will cover: 

  • How is edge management different from cloud / enterprise management ?
  • Current edge management approaches, their strengths as well as their limitations.
  • What are the differences between Node management, Application management and Device management ?
  • The need for open architecture edge management solutions

There will also be a demonstration of Edge Builder, IOTech’s new edge management solution.  Edge builder is platform agnostic, edge-centric, edge management solution designed to manage edge nodes their connected sensors/devices as well as the applications (both containerized and native) that will run on them.
