Dell Technologies has unveiled its Internet of Things (IoT) vision and strategy, a new IoT division as well as new IoT specific products, labs, partner program and consumption models.
The announcement underscores Dell Technologies commitment to helping customers realize their digital future by safely navigating the complex and often fragmented IoT landscape.
Michael Dell, chairman and chief executive officer of Dell Technologies said, “Dell Technologies is leading the way for our customers with a new distributed computing architecture that brings IoT and artificial intelligence together in one, interdependent ecosystem from the edge to the core to the cloud. The implications for our global society will be nothing short of profound.”
Customers have expressed a growing need for one company to pull together complete IoT solutions that can be deployed within their organizations. Dell Technologies’ comprehensive approach to IoT is based on market leading technology and services and a carefully curated partner ecosystem designed to realize value for customers today and prepare them for the future.
Rajesh Janey, President & MD, India Enterprise, Dell EMC said, “As per NASSCOM, The global market for IoT in 2020 will be worth $373 billion in revenue, with India accounting for $10-12 billion of this revenue. Therefore, extracting value from the vast amounts of data these IoT-enabled devices generate, requires a modern IT infrastructure that is secure from edge-to-core-to-cloud.
