 Sanjeev Banzal, Director General, Education and Research Network (ERNET India):
+ In the times to come, latency can pose a challenge and therefore the need for Edge is there to ensure real-time data processing and data-led decision-making.
 Sharat Sahai Mathur, Group General Manager, CRIS:
+ There’s a need for a lot of computing on the edge. Also, relevant upskilling of the workforce is much needed. Edge use case would include like for predictive maintenance or capturing and processing real-time data for our signalling equipment that are spread across the Indian Railways network.
 Lily Prasad, CTO, Food Safety and Standards Authority of India:
+ We had set up a cloud infrastructure that is working with Meghraj.
+ We need to have a data center also to have the flexibility to manage our workloads and optimise our operations further.
 Vipin Kashyap, CTO, Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation:
+ We have our data center on the colocation premise of Railtel. Also, we’re coming up with a new application EPFO 3.0 which will be an upgraded version of its predecessors. So, we’ll be leveraging both the on-prem and the public cloud to manage the data flow.
 Rishikesh Patankar, VP, National Skill Development Corporation:
+ We use public cloud for multiple operations.
+ We’ll be implementing the skilling part of the PM Vishwakarma scheme and we’ll be doing that through various centers.
+ Most of our compute is on public cloud. Also, edge data centers will have multiple use cases for us in the times to come as we need real-time feeds from on-ground training sessions.
