Enterprise adoption of cloud-based services continues at a rapid pace, from small businesses accessing high-powered productivity applications to large multinationals integrating advanced analysis tools to inform their business decisions.

Cloud services increasingly combine centralized and edge computing modes to meet the needs of different applications and services. As hybrid cloud strategies develop, ensuring consistent connectivity to every enterprise location is key to success.

In this webinar, Intelsat and Microsoft Azure will discuss how service providers and distributed enterprises can leverage platforms like FlexEnterprise and Cloud Connect to enable edge-computing services and extend cloud applications to users virtually anywhere.

We’ll explore:

  • Centralized-cloud and edge adoption trends
  • Delivering connectivity to the edge – wherever your "edge" may be
  • Use-cases for Cloud Connect and FlexEnterprise
