The @Dell #IoT Division launched in October 2017 amid great fanfare and a multimedia presentation in New York City. While the “magic” commercials in which @DellTechnologies claims to turn dairy cows into #datacenters may be farfetched, the company aims to do something very profound: It’s looking to deliver the same type of automation via IoT that many consumers now experience at home to manufacturing plants, office buildings and agricultural facilities. Through its #edge, #core and #cloud architecture, the company has announced it will invest $1 billion in its Dell IoT Division over the next three years. Initiatives include #ProjectFire with @VMware, to help organizations adopt and deploy IoT more rapidly; #ProjectIris with @RSA Labs, to provide security to the edge; and #ProjectWorldwideHerd, a project to enable #deep learning on geographically dispersed data

Dell is credible merely from the sheer scale of what it offers and the companies that are aligned with it.Mark Peterssenior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group

Mark Peters, a senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group, said that while companies such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise and IBM are focusing on IoT, only Dell has underscored its commitment by creating a separate division.

“I think Dell has a really strong chance to become a one-stop shop for the backbone infrastructure for IoT,” Peters said. “Dell is credible merely from the sheer scale of what it offers and the companies that are aligned with it. However, companies should not expect Dell to produce products such as intelligent sensors.”
