According to a new report published by Dell Technologies and the Institute for the Future (IFTF), emerging technologies such as IoT, along with massive advancements in software, big data and processing power, will reshape society. In 2030 every organization will be a technology organization and, as a result, businesses need to start thinking now about how to prepare their infrastructure for digital transformation.

“We’re committed to helping customers build the right IoT solutions to address their unique business needs,” said Joyce Mullen, senior vice president, Global IoT and OEM Solutions, Dell EMC. “Not only do we offer the industry’s broadest IoT portfolio, but we help customers build upon their existing equipment to help simplify the deployment process and reach their return-on-investment faster.”

The report concludes that, over the next decade, emerging technologies will underpin the formation of new human-machine partnerships that make the most of their respective complementary strengths. These partnerships will enhance daily activities around the coordination of resources and in-the-moment learning, which will reset expectations for work and require corporate structures to adapt to the expanding capabilities of human-machine teams.

One example of this change is Dell's work with Emerson to develop a new wireless valve monitoring solution built on Dell Edge Gateways. Additionally, Emerson is developing a control valve condition monitoring service, also based on Dell Edge Gateways. “Working with Dell, we have a partner that’s very interested in solving our customers’ problems,” said Mike Boudreaux, Director of Connected Services, Emerson. “We are developing secure connected services to collect data about our customers’ equipment, so they can take action based on that data. There are many gateway manufacturers, but they don’t have the worldwide manufacturing and support capabilities we get with Dell. That’s a real differentiator for our business.”
