During Data Economy’s inaugural forum The Edge of Tomorrow founding editor Joao Lima announced the publication’s plans to host four more forums covering the trends and disrupters set to shape the digital economy.
“It was clear from last night that the market is hungry for a very content focused forum which provides those attending with new insights of extremely relevant topics and issues set to transform the business of data centres, cloud and telecommunications,” said João Marques Lima, founding editor of Data Economy.
“We are extremely excited with our new events portfolio and the agenda for these four new forums will be announced in due time. At Data Economy we are not static. We evolve and adapt to both the market we cover and the feedback we received from our readers. We will continue to push the limits of what it is possible in this industry.”
The first forum took place in The Ham Yard Hotel in central London attracting leading authorities on edge computing with speakers from IBM, Accenture, Fujitsu, SSE Enterprise Telecoms, Vertiv and many more.
“The true scope and scale of edge computing was laid out for everyone to see. This is not just about speed anymore. This will fundamentally change the entire structure of the data economy,” remarked Matheu Spence, Head of Business Development at Data Economy.
“As João referenced in his opening remarks, we fast moving away from the zettabyte age and quickly moving into the exciting yottabyte era. The future is in the data economy.”
