Edge Computing Release Manager at IBM (Raleigh, NC)

At IBM, we are observing a sea-change in the way that enterprises want to employ compute resources to take on their most pressing business problems. While the movement to Cloud computing has brought enormous advantages in terms of dramatically shortening time-to-value, growing capital efficiency, and improving operational stability, doing so has exposed issues with latency, network utilization, and customer privacy.

New technologies like Edge computing helps take on many of these issues. By using the emerging computational capacity of edge devices, gateways and networks, and retaining the principles of dynamic allocation of resources and continuous delivery that are manifest in Cloud computing, the potential now is to virtualize the Cloud beyond the four walls of the Cloud data center. Workloads crafted in the Cloud, including some of the more modern forms for AI and Analytics, can now be migrated out towards the edge, even while data generated at the edge can be cleansed, optimized and brought back to the Cloud.

As a team, we cultivate a culture of transparency, trust and accountability and will expect that of every role and level throughout the organization. We are entering in to a new and very promising business market for IBM and so need to operate with urgency and purpose, and just want to have fun while we open this new frontier.
