This panel discussion will be moderated by Lori Lorusso:
Connected devices are the fastest-growing type of computing runtime environment, with a projected installed base of over 12 billion global active IoT connections (not including mobile phones) by the end of 2021, and predicted to accelerate at 22 percent a year through 2025. Billions of active end-points, such as 5G bay stations, self-driving vehicles, drones, robots and more, create a massively distributed attack surface, putting enterprises at even greater risk. Additionally, each connected ‘thing’ hosts a varying combination of sensors, cameras and hardware acceleration plug-ins with several versions of software, drivers, diagnostic and other applications, which exacerbates operational software update workflows. Thus, enterprises are facing a huge challenge in determining how to extend efficiently and securely the distribution of software releases beyond traditional targets such as corporate sites and data centers. In his keynote address, Stephen Chin, VP of Developer Relations for JFrog, will explore how the IoT explosion is impacting organizations and what they need to do to prepare for this next wave of DevOps challenges including what considerations should be made for the rapid pace of software development and updates, distribution tactics, the ability to rollback updates when needed, and more. Directly following the keynote, Stephen will join a panel of industry experts and developers to collectively explore the security and operational challenges that come with increasing use of software at the edge and why DevOps for IoT is no longer a nice-to-have, but a must-have.
