Yesterday’s EDA Summit was a great success. I’m sure you enjoyed it as much as I did. My biggest takeaway from it is that EDA is not just a concept anymore. It is a real thing now across almost all the industries. I can see that growing popularity and momentum in Gartner’s Keith Cuttridge’s session about trends in EDA across the four EDA scenarios, Ventana Research’s David Menninger’s session about how event data is impacting manufacturing and financial services, SAP’s session about its journey towards EDA, and Wipro’s Avanish Raut’s session about their EDA survey results and their projects.

    What a great event! My biggest takeaway was how EDA is being used in a variety of industries and not just a few verticals. Companies with different usecases are recognizing the value of EDA and starting to leverage it to make real business impact!

    I really enjoyed Ikea's session! Seeing how they leverage the event mesh over the supported cloud providers (AWS, GCP, Azure) and having their own virtual private cloud in Asia is pretty impressive. I liked how this streamlined their inventory management globally across all their locations and branches, proving that now more than ever after experiencing what the world went through during COVID that realtime updates is very important.

    And oh, how can I forget grandma!!
