It’s still early days as far as deployments of Kubernetes at the edge are concerned, but the Linux Foundation predicts edge computing will be four times larger than the cloud, with 75% of data being generated globally by edge computing platforms by 2025. Gartner similarly predicts that by 2025 more than 50% of enterprise-managed data will be created and processed outside of a traditional data center or cloud computing environment.

The primary driver of that growth is an increasing need to process and analyze data closer to the geographic location where that data is created and consumed. A very large percentage of the applications running at the edge will undoubtedly require instances of Kubernetes to process and orchestrate all the data being generated on these platforms.

What You’ll Learn in This Webinar

You’ve probably written a hundred abstracts in your day, but have you come up with a template that really seems to resonate? Go back through your past webinar inventory and see what events produced the most registrants. Sure – this will vary by topic but what got their attention initially was the description you wrote.

Paint a mental image of the benefits of attending your webinar. Often times this can be summarized in the title of your event. Your prospects may not even make it to the body of the message, so get your point across immediately.  Capture their attention, pique their interest, and push them towards the desired action (i.e. signing up for your event). You have to make them focus and you have to do it fast. Using an active voice and bullet points is great way to do this.

Always add key takeaways. Something like this....In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • You know you’ve cringed at misspellings and improper grammar before, so don’t get caught making the same mistake.
