“It’s exciting to bring ZEDEDA Transform back for its second year,” said ZEDEDA founder and CEO Said Ouissal. “The feedback we received after last year’s event was that it’s the only place that brings together an open ecosystem and industry experts covering all aspects of the edge computing and IoT markets.”

ZEDEDA Transform provides a holistic view of both the opportunities and the practical realities of developing and deploying edge computing solutions. It will feature more than 70 speakers across multiple tracks, with content for both technical and business-oriented participants. Session topics include security, edge AI, digital twin, go-to-market, business model innovation, ecosystem development and open source collaboration. Participating organizations include Advantech, the Eclipse Foundation, Google, HPE, Intel, IOTA, Juniper Networks, the Linux Foundation, Microsoft, PTC, SAS, VMware and more.

Participants will hear directly from ZEDEDA customers on how they are utilizing edge computing solutions to enhance their business, as well as partners within ZEDEDA’s open edge ecosystem as they detail industry-specific solutions in verticals such as oil and gas, renewable energy, manufacturing and retail.

“An open edge is required to realize the ultimate potential of digital—interconnected ecosystems that drive new experiences and business models,” said ZEDEDA VP of Ecosystem Jason Shepherd. “With Transform, ZEDEDA is collaborating with the industry to help customers solve business challenges today while getting on a path to scale into new revenue opportunities in the future.”

New this year is a dedicated track tailored toward the developer community, featuring both panel discussions and hands-on sessions. As part of its offering, ZEDEDA hosts an application marketplace that enables users to easily and securely deploy and maintain apps at the edge, similar to cloud-native experiences. Part of the Day 2 agenda will expose developers and application providers to this unique new market for their software. The developer track will also highlight valuable open source projects that enable orchestration, security, data management and analytics for distributed edge computing solutions.
