I caught up with Tom Bradicich, PhD, VP of HPE Labs and an HPE fellow recently to get updated about Converged Edge, IoT, and bringing the Line of Business people and the CIO organization into common cause. I met Tom at NI where he was an early evangelist for data--he talked about Big Analog Data. He had come from IBM and then left NI to return to the IT world with Hewlett Packard and then with Hewlett Packard Enterprise after the split. At HPE, he led the team developing the Edgeline, a converged Edge product that brought in IoT from the OT side of the business to a powerful compute platform. Later at HP Labs led the team to develop Edge-as-a-Service, if you will, that converges LOB and CIO organizations for solving business problems.
