The ‘Summer Scan’ series provides data centre community professionals with a summer-weight way of scanning the ideas shaping the industry. Each Summer Scan session contains a video – of a panel debate, a breakout session or one of the Academic Congress presentations delivered by a world-leading expert – that was originally presented at the Great Canadian Data Centre Symposium (GCDCS19) on June 19th-20th at McMaster Innovation Park in Hamilton, Ontario.
In this Summer Scan, we present the “Building integrated cloud/edge strategy: the why, how and how good” main stage panel discussion from the symposium. The session description read, “For many organizations, ‘the data centre’ has become an amalgam of resources resident in locations ranging from distant hyperscale locales to closets and cell towers. What does this mean to delivery and management strategy?”
Session panelists included:
- Erwin Van Hout, CTO, Sick Kids
- Marie Josee Drouin, CIO, NFB
- Scott Killian, VP, Uptime Institute
- Jeff Cowan, CTO, HCE Telecom
- Moderated by Mary Allen, Chief Content Officer, InsightaaS
