Traditional data centers are shifting and becoming more distributed, requiring a digital approach to IT infrastructure and operations.

Carlini's session, From Buzzwords to Reality: Managing Edge Data Centers, scheduled Wednesday, December 5, at 9:15 a.m., will clarify edge's current state, cover the three areas our industry must improve in order to overcome challenges and deliver on the rich promise of edge: an integrated ecosystem, management tools, and analytics & AI.

EcoStruxure IT also delivers enhanced value around safety, reliability, efficiency, sustainability, and connectivity for distributed infrastructure.

"The market demand for edge computing continues to grow but so does the confusion that surrounds edge computing," Carlini said. "We believe customers will require the industry to work together in ways that it never has before to overcome the challenges of edge. We will discuss our view on the need for a more robust edge infrastructure and three key areas that our industry must improve to bring about this transformation."
