CWIC 2020

At the Edge

Register now!

Thursday 9 July 2020 at the Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre, Hinxton

The world is at the edge of great change, with new technologies offering radically different operating models to businesses. The processing capacity of both low-power devices and data centres has increased dramatically over the past decade, and rapid, high-bandwidth connectivity means that consumers no longer notice where or what is processing their demands. They just know that their needs are being met more quickly and in a more personalised way than ever before. And they hope more than trust that it is being done in a secure, sustainable manner.

These new business models, exemplified by the rise of "X as a Service", are being tested by a few and early successes suggest that adoption will be required by all. Those who can successfully innovate soonest will thrive. The CW International Conference will introduce cutting-edge use cases to explore:

  • Which technologies are enabling the shift from "X as a Product" to "X as a Service"?
  • How will business models and internal processes need to change to keep ahead of the competition?
  • What challenges lie down this path, and what technologies are there which can alleviate their impact?
  • With sustainability now central to firms’ decision making, how can technologists ensure that this shift in business model has minimal impact on the planet.

The CW International Conference (CWIC) is the annual gateway to the Cambridge technology community.
