The Influence of IoT on Data Strategy
Thursday, May 14, 2020
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

More and more we are seeing compute and inference move to the edge. This is driven by the growth in capability to not only generate data from sensors, devices and by people operating in the field, but also by the interaction between those devices.

This new source of data and information brings with it unique challenges to the way we store and transmit data as well as the way we need to curate it. In this webcast we will look at:

  • New patterns generated by the explosion of the Internet of Things
  • How IoT is impacting storage and data strategies
  • Security and privacy issues and considerations
  • How to think about the lifecycle of our information in this new environment
