cisco and ibm partner at the edge of the network image

IBM is working with Cisco to coordinate analytics and data processing from the cloud to the edge to respond to conditions with low latency and throttle the flow to the cloud. Greg Knowles, IBM Program Director, Internet of Things Analytics, Watson IoT will be sharing the details at Cisco Live!

Attend CiscoLive! to hear about Edge computing

CiscoLive! Las Vegas will be the destination for the education and inspiration technologists need to thrive in the world of digital business. Thousands of technology innovators will gather for a transformational experience that includes today’s IT visionary thought leaders, more than 1,000 education sessions, Cisco’s top partners, and numerous opportunities to build the connections that will fuel attendees personal and professional growth.

Sessions are organized into technology tracks and learning paths to make it easy for attendees to find the topics that interest you most. If you’re not able to attend in person, Cisco have a learning platform where you can watch keynotes live streamed or you can check back for replays.

Come and visit IBM Booth #1536 at CiscoLive! Las Vegas

The live event is taking place at the Mandalay Bay hotel, Las Vegas, NV. IBM’s Booth #1536 at CiscoLive! will feature digital way finding, a conversation area, demonstration booths and a theatre where I’ll be talking about our partnership with Cisco to bring computing to the edge of the network.

Here’s when you can hear me talk at the IBM theater:

  • Monday, July 11, 4:30PM (PDT)
  • Tuesday, 12 July, 4:30PM (PDT)
  • Wednesday, 13 July, 4:30PM (PDT)

The best analytics anywhere, now available everywhere

I’ll be diving into more detail on the recent IBM and Cisco Partnership announcement – a global collaboration to provide instant Internet of Things (IoT) insight at the edge of the network. I’ll be explaining how businesses and organizations in remote and autonomous locations can tap into the combined power of IBM’s Watson IoT and business analytics technologies and Cisco’s edge analytics capabilities to more deeply understand and act on critical data on the network edge.

Today, billions of interconnected devices and sensors are gathering vast amounts of real-time data about the physical world. But how do you access that information and drive value if you don’t have access to high bandwidth or you’re operating in a remote location?

Practical examples for companies operating at network edges

I’ll be providing some practical examples of ways in which IBM’s new partnership with Cisco offers new ways to produce immediate, actionable insight at the point of data collection. This is an ideal solution for companies operating on the edge of computer networks such as oil rigs, factories, shipping companies and mines, where time is of the essence but bandwidth is often lacking.

Please come and join me on the IBM Booth #1536 at CiscoLive! Mandalay Bay – it would be great to meet you. If you can’t make it, please drop me a note below and we can find another time to talk or you can find out more at our IBM Edge Computing site.
