SUSECON 2019: Family and innovative partnerships to support customer needs


SUSECON provides a forum for building a passionate community of technically knowledgeable participants who use open source technology from SUSE in their enterprise IT environments and share their passion for this open source technology with their peers. At our annual conference, we announce and demonstrate SUSE’s vision and latest technical advances to customers, partners, press and analysts.  We also share insights and share best practices on the practical usage of these technologies.

SUSE is more than just a vendor, partner or community participant. The way we work with our partners, customers and the community is by treating them like family.  We don’t approach our business relationships as transactions but with care, loyalty, integrity and offering expert counsel and advice about our solutions.  This year we are really honing in on this, shining a brighter light on customer case studies, partners and the open source communities.  Interested in learning more about what’s happening within the SUSE family?  I have a few session suggestions for you below:

What is your edge? From the cloud to the edge, extending your reach [BOV1161]

As companies continue to take advantage of the benefits of cloud – increased flexibility, speed of innovation and quickly responding to business demands, it is no wonder that they want to extend these benefits to the edge. But there are still a lot of questions. What is edge? Which open source projects are working on edge initiatives? What is really being done today? What do I need to be ready? This session will introduce edge, discuss the many open source edge initiatives and provide examples of how some are gaining business advantages with edge computing. From there, we’ll layout an architecture for the future.
