CX at the edge: How to help businesses realise their ambitions for transformation

With the cloud computing era firmly cemented in Australia, organisations across almost every vertical are adopting a hybrid architecture to power their digital futures with data and workloads spread across multiple providers, technologies and locations.

Advances in internet-of-things (IoT) and 5G technologies will enable businesses to deliver a wealth of enhanced digital experiences for their customers, but delivering these is proving to be more expensive and complex than anticipated.

As vast quantities of data are processed in real-time, exponential workloads are being placed on data centres, placing businesses in unsustainable and high-risk situations.

When speed and reliability are expected as a given in the current CX landscape, downtime and latency is not an option. Enter edge computing, the architecture designed to bring compute, storage and manageability for critical applications as close as possible to the customer. 

But as an emerging term in a buzzword-laden industry, just how well do partners understand edge computing? How equipped are they to overcome the complexities and challenges to help businesses on their transformation journeys?

Join us at this exclusive ARN Exchange event, in association with APC by Schneider Electric, to hear about the opportunity and challenges facing the partner community within this new territory. As well as an update on market trends and customer priorities, get involved in practical discussions on how the channel can capitalise on the edge opportunity.

Leveraging research and market data from leading analyst firm Tech Research Asia, key discussion points include:

  • The edge opportunity in Australia
  • Assessing customer spending priorities in edge computing and digital transformation
  • Drawing up an edge strategy for customers and partners
  • Helping customers prioritise their spending for digital transformation and edge compute
  • Detailing how partners can increase profit through edge computing
  • Outlining key areas of market growth ahead
