Cloud for the next decade

While the world recovers from the pandemic, the need of the hour is an upheaval from cloud computing to intelligent edge computing.

The computing power of the cloud is virtually limitless. Amalgamating this gigantic power with increasingly connected and perceptive edge technologies, we are together capable of building possibilities that were just a dream decades ago.

This year, our focus is on the 4 key characteristics of cloud that will help shape the future of the next decade:

Edge computing: Edge computing represents the future of a cloud technology extension by making it bulletproof. It has been acclaimed as a ‘new revolutionary technology’ that can change the way organizations use the cloud. This event aims to understand what the key enablers of this technology are and how businesses can utilize them to become more cloud efficient.

Collaboration: Collaboration is the key to cloud innovation. While both developers and security professionals play an important role in optimizing the cloud, it is even more essential they work together to guarantee that any innovation is secure.

Security: The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the migration to cloud applications, thereby witnessing a sharp increase in cyberattacks as well. With work from home becoming the norm, many firms are migrating from old legacy systems to the cloud. Our leaders will discuss how organizations can get multi-cloud systems right and secure.

Adaptive networking: Adaptive networks form an essential part of an organization’s digital transformation journey. Our thought leaders will discuss how corporate strategy can be applied to optimize cost and maximize cloud performance.

Through our flagship event of Orchestrate, we bring to you thought leaders from Microsoft and HCLTech to share their perspectives on emerging cloud opportunities and challenges associated with them.

Key discussion areas:

  • Journey from cloud computing to edge computing to meet real-world demands
  • Data privacy and securitization for better AI models
  • Democratization of platforms for successful collaborations
  • Adaptive networking for intelligent solutions to real-world problems

Solutions Showcase

Democratizing data analytics for a TSP with AIONTM
In this demo, we exhibit how a telecom service provider can ensure the service quality of the devices used in their network by leveraging HCLTech’s AION platform for predictive analytics. Apart from having a broad range of pre-built Machine Learning algorithms, the AION platform combines the features of state-of-the-art integration with 100+ data sources, libraries, components & packages and facilitates complete automation of data and model deployment pipelines. This platform transforms how business analysts can experiment with their ideas to achieve new heights.

Building fault detection ML model with AIONTM
This demo will exemplify how HCLTech’s AION platform can help OEMs to predict and classify the faults from the condition monitoring telemetry data of any machine. Flexible training and deployment options of the AION platform enables SMEs to focus on missing domain data without worrying about understanding the nitty-gritty of model deployment. This allows developers to accelerate model deployment & integration and provides a base starting point for data scientists to build upon.
