Can be more excited with how are our community is going in one reason is because I have a personal passion for the edge and I done tried to find the edge as not the cloud right not the Datacenter clouds are data centers today, right? And when you go out of the Datacenter and you leave the Datacenter Cloud you get into the edge and I could be your city street your home, of course a manufacturing floor retail store or a battlefield a wind farm in oil rig all these edges have things in them teeth right thing. And so addressing this
dimension in our industry so that we can do as the opening slide says, I hope you can see this it says advancing the way we live in work that we do it using the iot and the edge locations and primarily in our world the it infrastructure and the OT operational technology infrastructure with you hear a lot about today. I'm really sorry. That Sergio out with us today. He is EVP for Tech data A Day to a great and very large and the credentialed achieve and very much has achieved a prominent position in the CIT note E Industries going
to share some of his insights into what we call perhaps the manufacturing Edge. And then with us we have Charlie stack Charlie works at text Mark Chemical Company.
