Video: Leveraging Edge Computing to Simplify and Scale

Meet the Experts

Key Takeaways

⇨ Moving workloads to the edge can help deliver higher performance at the point of transaction

⇨ Using containers in conjunction with moving workloads to the edge can limit exposure while allowing for easier management and updating of deployments

⇨ Containerization in conjunction with edge processing can distribute critical processes and improve performance

While centralizing systems to create a single source of business and financial truth within the organization is a key driver for moving to solutions like SAP S/4HANA, there are potential downsides to having every transaction relying on one central system. Part of that issue can be the lag involved with accessing a central system, while another may be the increased load that occurs on that central instance. So, while centralization is occurring, other technologies like edge computing can also be leveraged to deliver high performance while managing complexity.

In this video interview with Matt Thoman, Product Manager and Retail Solution Owner at Vertex, and Eric Christian, Principal Architect of Edge Solutions at Vertex, we discuss the value that edge computing can bring to SAP environments, and how it can help make a centralized system feasible.
