Dell EMC, Atos partner in IoT, analytics push 

At the Dell EMC World Conference in Las Vegas this week, the two companies announced a partnership that will combine Dell’s hardware and software portfolio with the Atos Codex – a complete set of solutions meant to design, build, run, and secure IoT-powered business services and data platforms.

The service management framework will be called Atos Codex IoT Services.

“We are proud to help Atos enhance their IoT service offering, which will leverage our comprehensive portfolio such as Dell Edge Gateways to securely transfer and analyze important data at the edge of the network and Dell EMC hyper-converged infrastructure and scale-out storage at the core,” said Jay Snyder, senior vice president for global alliances, industries and service providers at Dell EMC. “Combining these assets with Atos’ expertise, services, hardware and their IoT capabilities in the Atos Codex end-to-end managed analytics offering, we are well positioned to help our customers successfully deliver their IoT-driven digital transformation agenda.”

According to a recent Markets and Markets report in 2016 IoT professional services accounted for $57 billion in 2016. Service is expected to account for nearly 40 per cent of global IoT-related revenue by 2020, the market research firm said.

Imagine the billions of connected devices generating data and applications creating value of these connections. Businesses taking advantage of the IoT trend will need strong end-to-end service management capabilities to control their IoT networks.

The Dell EMC-Atos partnership “will offer businesses the tools to utilize their data and assets to provide continuous value and improved business outcomes, wherever they are,” said Paul Albada Jelgersma, head of IoT solutions at Atos.

The Atos Codex IoT Services framework will contain a catalogue of services including management of devices, connectivity, data, and storage, change and release control, incident management, service desk and support, and operations to increase resilience against failures or disturbances.

These services will be delivered with user-defined service levels, including the necessary security measures for access management and data encryption.

The framework also defines an architecture blueprint, containing hardware and software solutions from Dell EMC as well as software solutions and integration services from Atos.

The collaboration is expected to cover two areas:

  • Joint development/design of the Service Delivery Framework, utilizing existing assets from both companies
  • Joint market approach to building upon the strength of each company’s brand and capabilities to build and sell solutions driven by customer demand

An analyst who is an expert the cloud and digital services space expressed positive outlook towards the new Dell EMC-Atos partnership.

“Atos’ approach to enabling IoT use cases for achieving operational efficiency, customer engagement, and business transformation meets a clear market requirement,” said Yugal Joshi, practice director at Everest Group“Its capabilities across the IoT stack, enhanced by strategic investments, partnerships, such as with Dell EMC, and experience in executing large-scale projects drives continuous value delivery and improved business outcomes for the customers.”
