Retail organizations need to collect and analyze data in real time to make informed decisions about inventory management, customer engagement and other key business operational needs. Additionally, as retail operations continue to grow and expand, retailers need to scale their operations seamlessly and efficiently, including at the edge where space, network connectivity and resources may be limited.

However, Chief Technology Officers, or those working in the information technology (IT) or operational technology (OT) side of a retail organization, know that it is difficult to find a consistent platform — from core, to cloud, to edge — that also manages all aspects of a lifecycle of edge devices. Additionally, they know they must properly secure edge deployments so they don’t lose protection from the data center or allow new attack vectors in. Retailers can’t afford to manually manage the software at each location, nor can they forgo updating applications with important security and bug fixes.

SUSE Edge 3.0 is a purpose-built cloud native edge computing platform designed to manage the full lifecycle of edge devices at scale. With the Edge Platform bundle and SUSE Edge Ready Family of Services, retailers can:

  • Harness the full power of open source with a validated, reliable and optimized stack for the edge;
  • Manage distributed edge environments with a purpose-built, easy-to-deploy stack; and
  • Enhance security at the edge with enterprise-grade capabilities.

With SUSE Edge, IT and OT business units can gain access to the automation, security and common management framework needed to optimize their edge investments. They can focus on the workloads as opposed to the infrastructure, with small, low-risk and well-tested updates.


Retail Innovation Conference & Expo attendees can stop by the SUSE booth #212 and see demos featuring SLE Micro, Rancher, NeuVector and SUSE Manager, all vitally important elements in edge computing environments.
