The advent of the cloud and smart technologies is revealing new scenarios that were simply not possible until now. Smart sensors and connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices now allow us to capture new data from industrial equipment: from factories to farms, from smart cities to homes. And whether it’s a car or even a refrigerator, new devices are increasingly cloud-connected by default.
Simultaneously, hybrid cloud is evolving from being the integration of on-premises data centres with the public cloud, to becoming units of computing that are accessible even in the world’s most remote destinations.
By bringing these two new realities together—and with artificial intelligence running across all systems—we have entered the era of the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge.
