Witness the most transformative opportunity of the next decade, at Edge 2018

The edge computing market size is expected to grow from USD 1.47 Billion in 2017 to USD 6.72 Billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 35.4% during the forecast period.1

A voluminous increase in the amount of data generated from millions of devices streaming music, videos, social networking, is creating a high network load and demand for more bandwidth. Edge computing is one of the most feasible solutions when it comes to improving user experience and optimizing bandwidth usage.

Increased load on cloud infrastructure, growing application range in various types of industries, and an increase in the number of intelligent and connected devices are the main driving forces for the Edge Computing Market.

Amongst this growing market for Edge Computing, organizations need to equip themselves with information about the latest and upcoming trends in the edge computing and edge datacenters, the strong market players, opportunities etc.

To explore how computing data at the edge will connect everything, BroadGroup is conducting Edge 2018 on October 24-25, 2018 at Austin, Texas.

Let’s quickly take a sneak peek into Edge 2018

Edge 2018 will be a highly interactive platform which will see the coming together of world leading edge players and datacenter leaders to discuss new opportunities that exist in the edge ecosystem.

Edge 2018 will respond to the emerging opportunities coming forth due to the growing inclination towards distributed infrastructure through the convergence of new technologies like AI (Artificial Intelligence), IoT (Internet of things), 5G like smart cities, autonomous cars, micro-datacenters, connected things and edge facilities.

Edge represents the most metamorphic and profound change for decades, connecting things everywhere and enabling new ways of analyzing and managing the data needed to alter society, drive change and prioritize information critical to local infrastructure operations enabled by 5G and AI,” said Philip Low, the Chairman of BroadGroup.

Public Cloud spending to reach $266 billion in 2021 with the US expected to be the largest market – IDC report

Public Cloud spending is forecasted to reach $266 billion in 2021 worldwide, according to a recent update to the IDC Worldwide Semiannual Public Cloud Services Spending Guide. Out of it, $163 billion will be accounted for by the United States alone.

The spending will be slow between 2016-2021, and is expected to achieve a CAGR of 21.0%, per the report.

Amongst the regions, the United States will stand as the largest market for public cloud services, closely followed by Western Europe and APEJ (Asia/Pacific except Japan) regions with $52 billion and $25 billion respective spending levels in 2021.

Angela Vacca, SRM, Customer Insights and Analysis, said, “In Western Europe, the public cloud market is going to more than double in the 2016-2021 timeframe led by strong spending growth in Germany, which is also the largest national market, Italy, and Sweden. The industries that will grow the most in the period under investigation are utilities, discrete manufacturing, insurance, and professional services.

She considers digital transformation as the major driver of cloud market as it will support organizations’ DX goals.

Software-as-a-Service(SaaS) has been identified as the major cloud computing type with maximum spending – two-third of the total public cloud spend in 2017 and expected to reach 60% by 2021. CRM and ERP applications will make up more than 60% of all the cloud applications’ purchases.

With regards to the company size, more than half of the spending will come from large sized organizations, while medium-sized organizations will account for 20%, per the report.

The growing demand for cloud services will result in substantial rise of Datacenters, as Cloud service providers will need infrastructure to expand their services’ reach.

The current cloud spending in 2017 is also expected to see an increase of 25.4% as compared to 2016, reaching $128 billion, per the press release by IDC.
