Edge IT: The Engine Powering Digital Transformation

Author: Richard L. Villars Vice President, Datacenter & Cloud
Abstract

This IDC Perspective provides business leaders and CIOs with a road map to develop expertise in assessing, deploying, and managing IT at increasingly "smart" edge locations. These urban cores, hospitals, and factories are where IoT, robotics, augmented/virtual reality, 3D printing, and cognitive/AI are created and delivered. Your ability to deliver IT at the edge will be the key to boosting business velocity, enabling dynamic business scaling, and ensuring greater business operational flexibility.

"To succeed in digital transformation, your IT organization must develop expertise in assessing, deploying, and managing IT at the edge," said Richard Villars, vice president, Datacenter and Cloud.
