Dell To Spend $1bn On IoT R&D

Dell outlines IoT strategy, plans to spend $1 billion on R&D over three years

For the last 15 years, the IT industry has seen the rise of cloud computing, a highly centralised model for delivering IT services. What was commonly thought of for such things as smart thermostats (that the original models were more about novelty than functionality), it now applies to something a bit sexier such as things like self-driving Tesla Model S's. IoT, along with big data analytics, is the centerpiece of most digital transformation efforts. Dell Technologies is addressing this issue with its "distributed core". This new division will be lead by Ray O'Farrell, CTO of VMware.

Dell Technologies has unveiled plans of a major new IoT push, including a new division specifically targeting new connected technologies.

Dell Technologies, which includes units such as Dell EMC, Pivotal, VMware and RSA, are already making use of some aspects of IoT.

This includes Project Nautilus, a new software offering that takes in and analyses data streams from IoT gateways in real-time.

Project Fire, a hyper converged platform that will simplify management, compute and storage for IoT applications.

Investments in technologies that boost analytics at the edge.

After pivoting from personal computers to data center hardware and software, Dell Technologies is now charting a course toward the next state of its evolution - providing "distributed" computing through the Internet of Things.

Project Worldwide Herd: for performing analytics on geographically dispersed data - increasingly important to enable deep learning on datasets that can not be moved for reasons of size, privacy and regulatory concern. IoT is also an emerging theme for 2018 and a budget priority.

IoT Technology Advisory - develops the overall IoT architecture and roadmap for implementation.

The company's IoT Solutions Partner Program, which now has 90 members including Microsoft, SAP and Intel, will be central to growing Dell's IoT presence, according to the announcement. Dell's partner program now supports partners across all Dell Technologies businesses. Since launching in April 2017, EdgeX Foundry has grown to more than 60 member organizations. In addition, the company announced its intention to spend at least $1 billion on IoT research and development.

On the venture capital side, Dell Technologies Capital will invest in startups breaking new IoT ground. The new business will position Dell as a primary provider of IoT infrastructure, machine learning and analytical services. Dell Technologies is setting itself to be that provider.
