IT solution providers may rightfully be wondering, “What’s in it for me?” A new edge computing webinar answers just that question. There’s good reason for all the buzz about the edge. Edge computing is becoming increasingly important as companies go through digital transformations, using technology to improve customer experiences, streamline operations, create new business opportunities and more.

To learn more about just what those opportunities are, APC by Schneider Electric commissioned Canalys, a leading research analyst firm, to survey IT channel partners on the edge computing opportunity. The one-hour webinar, “The Edge Computing Opportunity for Channel Partners,” features representatives from Canalys presenting the results of that research. They are joined by Giles Pattison of APC by Schneider Electric, who shares insights and solutions on the edge computing opportunity, from design to deployment to managing edge computing environments.
