CRN Exclusive: Four Questions For Dell EMC Channel Chief Joyce Mullen
Are there any certain verticals at the edge that Dell Technologies is focusing on?
In terms of the edge, we've actually chosen to focus primarily on a couple of different verticals: industrial automation, transportation and energy. We'll continue to expand those as we go forward. The edge examples that we're seeing in factories are around predictive maintenance and asset management. In energy, it's around predictive maintenance, asset management and process controls. There's a massive opportunity for all of our sellers to start helping customers see the possibilities as we start to increase the capabilities of compute at the edge and decision-making at the edge.
We started doing a couple of things with health care that are mostly built into medical devices, which we've been supporting for a very long time through our OEM business, but also hospital and patient monitoring, and pharmaceutical dispensing. All are cases where edge compute is very helpful and effective.
