IoT, a New Distributed Model for Computing
As more and more customers look to digitally transform their business, a new model of computing is emerging. For the last 15 years the IT industry has seen the rise of Cloud Computing, a highly centralized model for delivering IT services. But in an age where every type of device, from phones to cars to oil rigs to robots to heart monitors are alive and intelligent, there is a requirement for a "distributed core" focused on real time processing of information. These devices simply cannot wait for a response from centralized cloud infrastructure that may be 'seconds' away.
"IoT is fundamentally changing how we live, how organizations operate and how the world works" said
Customers have expressed a growing need for one company to pull together complete IoT solutions that can be deployed within their organizations.

Organic Investments in our IoT Future – Products, Labs, Partner Program
Over the next three years,
New product development initiatives include:
EMC'Project Nautilus': Software that enables the ingestion and querying of data streams from IoT gateways in real time. Data can subsequently be archived to file or object storage for deeper advanced analytics;
- 'Project Fire': a hyper converged platform part of the VMware Pulse family of IoT solutions that includes simplified management, local compute, storage and IoT applications such as real-time analytics. 'Project Fire' enables businesses to roll-out IoT use cases faster and have consistent infrastructure software from edge to core to cloud;
- RSA 'Project IRIS': Currently under development in
RSA Labs, Iris extends the Security Analytics capability to provide threat visibility and monitoring right out to the edge;
- Disruptive technologies like processor accelerators will increase the velocity of analytics closer to the edge. Collaboration with industry leaders like
VMware, Inteland NVIDIAand the Dell Technologies Capitalinvestment in Graphcore reflect opportunities to optimize servers for AI, machine learning and deep learning performance.
- Project 'Worldwide Herd': for performing analytics on geographically dispersed data – increasingly important to enable deep learning on datasets that cannot be moved for reasons of size, privacy and regulatory concern.
Customers can also now visit one of the newly designed
New IoT services initiatives include:
IoT Vision Workshop– identifies and prioritizes high-value business use cases for IoT data – essentially how and where to deploy IoT analytics that drive business.
- IoT Technology Advisory – develops the overall IoT architecture and roadmap for implementation.
In addition, with the core focus on technology and services,
- Dell's award-winning IoT Solutions Partner Program is a carefully curated, multi-tiered program comprising more than 90 partners from enterprises like
Intel, Microsoftand SAP to start-ups like Action Point, IMS Evolve, FogHorn and Zingbox.
- The program will now support partners across all
Dell Technologiesbusinesses, allowing for easier collaboration and implementation of blueprints.
- An example of the partner ecosystem at work is the recent announcement that
VMwareand SAP are collaborating to create an integrated solution for IoT analytics and vertical applications. The solution utilizes VMware Pulse IoT Center, SAP Cloud Platform and SAP Leonardo and is designed to help customers roll out IoT use cases faster and scale more easily.
IoT is creating new revenue models for customers and, in turn,
