Building a hyper-connected future with cloud, edge, ML, and 5G

Part of the For Cloud Professionals podcast series

We already live in a connected world, but technologies like cloud, edge computing, ML, and 5G will profoundly reshape the way people and technology connect and interact with each other, and they will usher in a future that is scarcely imaginable now.

Cloud, edge, ML, and 5G will radically reshape your future

Cloud, edge computing, and machine learning (ML) are radically changing the way people interact with technology. The advent of 5G—with its ability to drastically reduce latency—will speed the pace of change almost unimaginably, and it can enable humans and technology to interact in near symbiosis. In this episode of the podcast, David Linthicum and guests, Deloitte’s Ashwin Patil and Cloudera’s Michael Ger, discuss the changes and challenges ahead for cloud, edge, and ML and how—coupled with 5G—those changes will likely bring about a profound transformation in how technology is integrated into our lives.

Disclaimer: As referenced in this podcast, “Amazon” refers to AWS (Amazon Web Services) and “Google” refers to GCP (Google Cloud Platform).

The ability for devices to act intelligently in near real time, not only for themselves, but to be able to transmit that information to the broader ecosystem and, through areas like cloud, make the overall ecosystem smarter is what's going to drive the future.Ashwin Patil is Deloitte Consulting LLP’s managing director for Global Manufacturing Analytics. He has led the design of multiple solutions, implementations, and go-to-market strategies in the analytics and information management space.

Michael Ger is general manager, Automotive & Manufacturing Solutions at Cloudera, Inc. He has more than 25 years of experience working in industry and information technology strategy roles, as well as deep cross-industry knowledge in product development, manufacturing, and supply chain.

What is the role of edge and cloud computing as technology consumption increases?

​Edge computing isn't binary with the cloud. As enterprise technology consumption increases, and costs decrease, many organizations will move more apps to the cloud, but they'll also use more edge devices. And, the human factor will be more important than ever.

Put Cloud in context with the future of business and technology

Because cloud is never just about cloud, a podcast about cloud isn’t either. Our two hosts deliver two unique perspectives to help bring you closer to achieving what matters most—your possible.

For Cloud Professionals, hosted by David Linthicum, provides an enterprise-level, strategic look at key issues impacting clients’ businesses. David, ranked as the #1 cloud influencer in a recent Apollo Research report, has published 13 books on computing, written over 5,000 published articles and performed over 500 conference presentations, making his specialization in the power of cloud simply undeniable.

As a pioneer in cloud computing, Mike Kavis leads Architecting the Cloud, which offers insights from the POV of those who’ve had hands-on experience with cloud technology. Mike’s personal cloud journey includes leading the team that built the world's first high-speed transaction network in Amazon's public cloud—a project that ultimately won the 2010 AWS Global Startup Challenge.

With two leaders in your ear, you’ll have the content you need to drive the next conversation around cloud. Check out both talk tracks within the Deloitte On Cloud podcast to get the compelling stories on your schedule to help you understand the topics that are reshaping today’s market.
