Summaries are can be accessed by everyone, Access to presentations is restricted to members of The Open Group and conference attendees.

In today’s real-time world, getting accurate information into the hands of the ‘edge user’– be they military, first responders, field sales representatives, or stock traders– is increasingly important. Occurrences of threats such as terrorism, natural disaster, and extreme weather represent a major challenge for IT professionals, forcing them to face the convergence of traditional real-time and non-real-time systems.

Systems at the edge – typically based on highly distributed infrastructure and interaction of a large number of services – need to be predictive and dynamic, highly fault-tolerant, and have the capability to operate in real time; from gathering data for analysis, review, and response to disseminating information to end users. The conference will address business and technical requirements of ’edge’ systems, discuss effective solutions, review best practices and success stories, and demonstrate the latest tools.

What you will experience
Join industry and public sector experts to explore the key issues, business and technical challenges, and latest advances of architecting to the edge, getting the right information, to the right people, at the right time.
Take part in three days packed with informative sessions and highly practical workshops, network with peers, and learn how architecture needs to evolve to address the increasing demands of ‘edge’ systems
