How does Edge Computing Unlock New Opportunities for Your Organization?

The trend toward digitization, to improve business performance and efficiency, is fueling demand for applications that require peak performance. In tax determination, often involving your customers via transactional systems, this is no different. With deployments of IoT devices and the arrival of 5G fast wireless, placing compute and analytics close to where data is created is making the case for edge computing.

Many companies face the common business and technology challenges in which cloud computing services are inherently slow and that hampers the cloud’s capabilities in running deterministic applications, such as real-time tax calculations. In this practical session you will learn how to leverage edge computing to minimize latency and bring the deterministic application as close to the data source as possible. You will discover:

• What is edge computing and why does it matter
• What benefits and challenges does edge computing address for tax and IT professionals
• How edge computing reduces network latency and speed business processes
• Where and when edge computing is a potential alternative for any on premise solutions that may be in place with your organization
