About this Episode

Enterprise IT is rapidly moving towards the edge, but what does that really mean? There are extremes to what defines edge. Edge can describe the safe environment of a remote branch office, or maybe the air-conditioned cushiness of a remote telco hut. Then there's the extreme edge, where the lines between IT and OT blur, and anything can go.

Jason Andersen, Stratus Technologies' vice president of business line management, joins Moor Insights & Strategy senior technology analysts Matt Kimball and Steve McDowell to talk about what edge computing can really mean.

If you're wondering how far the reach of IT can (or should) extend out into the wilds of remote infrastructure, then this is the podcast for you.
