Hard SaaS: How edge computing and bespoke networks will drive the next integration cycle

Traditional SaaS is done. The next wave of SaaS innovation is based on a new class of powerful application-specific, AI-capable computers and sensors that can gather and process data on the edge, make a split-second decision, and then contribute what it’s learned to the collective wisdom of the enterprise. The benefits are lower costs (no expensive data roundtrip to a central AI computer) and lightning-fast response.

For example, a self-driving car must be able to gather and act on local data in real-time, but also share this information with a central “brain” to raise the IQ of the entire system. This new form of SaaS—which Cota calls “Hard SaaS”—can utilize easy to deploy, ultra-secure custom networks if none exist in that location—airport perimeters, factories, K-12 parking lots, and remote facilities that require 24/7 monitoring such as hazardous waste tanks.

Join us as host Adit Singh, Partner at Cota Capital, and his guests Partho Mishra, Co-founder & CEO, Ramen, and Garrett Larsson, Co-founder & CEO of Rhombus, as they discuss the implications and uses of Hard SaaS.
