Dell Technologies is embarking on a new Internet of Things (IoT) vision and strategy, creating an IoT division as well as IoT-specific products, labs, partner program, and consumption models. This announcement, the company says, underscores its commitment to helping customers realize their digital future by safely navigating the complex and often fragmented IoT landscape.
“IoT is fundamentally changing how we live, how organizations operate and how the world works,” said Michael Dell, chairman and chief executive officer of Dell Technologies. “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’ approach to IoT is based on leading technology and services and a carefully curated partner ecosystem designed to realize value for customers today and prepare them for the future.
The company’s new IoT Division will be led by VMware CTO Ray O’Farrell, and is chartered with orchestrating the development of IoT products and services across the Dell Technologies family. The IoT Solutions Division will combine internally developed technologies with offerings from the vast Dell Technologies ecosystem to deliver complete solutions for the customer.
Over the next 3 years, Dell Technologies is investing $1 billion in new IoT products, solutions, labs, partner program and ecosystem.
New product development initiatives include Dell EMC ‘Project Nautilus,’ ‘Project Fire,’ RSA ‘Project IRIS,’ and project ‘Worldwide Herd.’
New IoT services initiatives include IoT Vision Workshop and IoT Technology Advisory.
In addition, with the core focus on technology and services, Dell Technologies’ strategy is to grow the IoT footprint via a strong partner program and ecosystem.
