Internet of Things solutions program launched
The Dell IoT Solutions Partner Program has been launched for the advancement of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and solutions. The program is designed to build an ecosystem of partners to help customers navigate the fragmented IoT landscape and identify the right technologies to develop their IoT solutions. The program will combine a global, multi-tiered network of experienced independent software vendors (ISVs) with a portfolio of IoT assets, including purpose-built gateways and embedded PCs, security and manageability tools, data center and cloud infrastructure, and data integration and analytics software. Dell is working with information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) organizations to create a unifying IoT strategy for bridging their differing business approaches.
Dell, Kepware, and Software AG are collaborating to develop IoT enabled predictive maintenance models utilizing distributed analytics to address the industry’s biggest operational challenges, such as unplanned downtime, overall equipment effectiveness, maintenance cost and return on assets.
With Microsoft and Blue Pillar, Dell is delivering automated demand response solutions which help utilities maintain grid reliability and enable customers to realize significant value through dispatch of onsite power generation or reduction in consumption.
Dell and SAP are also collaborating to bring business to the edge with models designed to help address the industry’s biggest operational challenges, such as business continuity, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), maintenance cost and return on assets.
The IoT Partner Program includes companies across a wide range of industries in areas such as industrial and building automation and transportation. The program launches with more than 25 partners including GE, SAP, Software AG, Microsoft, OSIsoft and others.
