About the Speaker
Ashish Nadkarni, Group Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group
Ashish Nadkarni is Group Vice President within IDC’s Worldwide Infrastructure Practice. He leads a team of analysts who engage in delivering qualitative and quantitative research on computing, storage, and data management infrastructure platforms and technologies, via syndicated research programs (subscription services), data products (IDC Trackers) and custom engagements. Ashish’s vision for his team is to take a holistic, forwarding-looking and long-term view on emerging as well as established infrastructure-related areas in the datacenter, in the cloud and at the edge. His core research starts with an objective assessment of heterogeneous, accelerated, fog, edge and quantum computing architectures, silicon, memory and data persistence technologies, composable and disaggregated systems, rackscale design, software-defined infrastructure, modern operating system environments, and physical, virtual and cloud computing software. It is complemented by research on current and next-gen applications and workloads, vertical and industry-specific use cases, emerging storage and server form factors and deployment models, and upcoming IT vendors. Ashish also takes a keen interest in tracking the ongoing influence of open and open-source communities like OpenStack and Open Compute Project on infrastructure.
