Curious how the International Space Station stays stocked with everything from hardware to toothpaste? Or how the FBI applies advanced biometrics to scan more than 650,000 fingerprints in one day? Or how vaccines to fight malaria, Zika, and HIV are developed? In this podcast presented by Leidos, join hosts Meghan Good and Bridget Bell as we interview great minds in science, engineering, and technology to share the stories behind some of the world’s most important work.

Real-Time Decision Making with Edge To Cloud
Analyzing data to make mission-critical decisions used to take days or weeks, but now edge to cloud operations have reduced this time to hours if not minutes. With edge to cloud, decision making is moved to the edge where data is collected and allows the data to rapidly transit to link the mission space to the cloud.

How edge to cloud accelerates innovation and digital modernization
The capabilities included in the edge to cloud ecosystem at Leidos
The importance of edge to cloud operations across sectors
