OEM Solutions Enable Human Progress

first_imgThroughout my eighteen-year career at Dell Technologies, I’ve worked across multiple divisions and geographies, engaging with thousands of customers from global players to large Government departments and individual consumers. And now, as I lead our global OEM Solutions business, I am regularly asked by family and friends: what’s new, what’s different?Responding to customer needsFor me, what’s different about OEM is the way our technology becomes part of something bigger. We partner with our customers, who are often disruptors in their industries. Together, we combine our IP to bring innovation to market faster, co-designing solutions, that have changed and continue to change our world for the better. For example, our technology powers our OEM’s solutions, which they go on to use to diagnose and treat diseases, reduce energy costs, and make factories more efficient.Co-designing solutionsHow do we work together? We roll up our sleeves and become partners in the design process, making solutions that our OEM customers subsequently market and sell to their customer base. It’s a smart division of labor, where we both focus on our core expertise.OEM’s strong engineering capability is exactly what sets us apart. We offer ruggedized systems certified for challenging environments, long lifecycle products with managed product transitions plus incremental expertise through a range of partners. We not only modify these products but can even build an entirely new solution or fully customize existing platforms to meet the exact needs of our customers and partners.We help select the right compute power and customize the hardware platform to optimally run our customers’ IP. We test, certify, build, and ship it globally. Industries around the world rely on our expertise to accelerate their business and drive a positive impact on their communities worldwide. Faster detection of diseaseFor example, we provided our Dell Technologies product portfolio and best in class engineering services to Konica Minolta to develop a solution that can conduct deep tissue analysis and track minuscule changes in an individual’s mammogram over many years This will enable doctors to diagnose conditions such as breast and lung cancer sooner than before. Konica Minolta needed a powerful hardware platform that could process up to 300 images in a single scan and animate those images in mere minutes. By combining X-ray machines with advanced hardware and AI, doctors have access to new tools that ultimately protect lives. Our partnership story is told here.A force for goodOn the environmental front, we’ve collaborated with Doosan in South Korea to help turn the world on to cleaner and safer power. In India, our partnership with Qognify is making smart cities safer and more secure. In the UK, we’ve partnered with Hark to support their solution design to reduce energy expenditure and carbon emissions. Visit our OEM Solutions page for countless more examples of the impact we have driven with our customers around the world.The futureAs we continue into 2021, what lies ahead? Innovation continues to thrive particularly in vertical industries such as healthcare, transportation, industrial automation, and many more. To help these industries continue to evolve through technology, I’m excited about the potential of our recently launched OEM Engineered Solutions, which offers validated, turnkey customer solutions to end customers through Dell Technologies sales channels. We’re also building on the tremendous momentum we have with our channel partners to deliver capabilities that extend past our core strengths.Our OEM customers are optimistic about the road ahead and will never stop innovating which is exactly why I’m heading into this year feeling incredibly energized. I see Edge computing continuing to drive digital transformation, and Dell Technologies and our OEM customers and partners are well-positioned to take advantage of this trend. As processors become more powerful, storage becomes more affordable and network access improves, I am confident that we’ll discover new opportunities to change our world for the better.To all our OEM customers and partners, I look forward to working with you.

Hipsters drive billion dollars worth of unit sales in inner Brisbane

first_imgInner Brisbane units attracted over a billion dollars’ worth of sales last year, the latest Place Advisory apartment report has found.HIPSTERS drove over a billion dollars’ worth of unit sales in inner Brisbane last year, latest data shows, but it was a sharp drop on the previous year’s record results.The latest Place Advisory Inner Brisbane apartment report, set for release Monday, found gross sales of new units declined to $1.304 billion as the market continued to soften.It was a 59 per cent fall from 2015’s record sales of approximately $3.194 billion.Place Advisory head Lachlan Walker saw a clear slowdown in the number of units that developers were putting to market, with 2980 apartments released over 2016 in 25 new projects, down by a third over 2015’s figure and almost half the number released during 2014’s peak.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home2 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor8 hours agoThere are currently 47 apartment projects under construction in inner Brisbane. Picture: Jack Tran/The Courier-Mail“Inner Brisbane has undergone a significant transformation. Following a record breaking 2015 which saw the highest volume of transactions on record, 2016 was a considerably tougher year.”Mr Walker attributed softer sales to election year policies, higher construction costs, changes to lending policies for both developers and purchasers plus the crackdown on foreign purchases.There were 47 apartment projects under construction in inner Brisbane last year, compared to 68 in 2015, though still up on 26 recorded in 2011.Mr Walker said there had been a significant shift “away from smaller, more affordable stock to larger apartments” with the proportion of one-bedroom-apartment sales decreasing from 52 per cent in 2011 to just 36 per cent last year. The biggest demand last year was for two-bedroom units (55 per cent), up from 38 per cent in 2011, but three bedroom stock had also made a comeback to 7 per cent after dropping to 4 per cent in 2015.The average price of inner city apartments sold last year was $606,922, a 2 per cent rise on the previous year.last_img read more

Farmers see second straight week of planting progress

first_imgDES MOINES — The planting season continues to move rapidly ahead following a year where farmers had to sit and wait for things to dry out.The weekly crop report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows 91% of the corn planting is done — up from 78% last week. The report says 71% of the soybeans were in the ground — an increase from 46% the week before.Iowa State University Extension Field Agronomist Paul Kassel says it’s been decades since farmers have the conditions to be able to work at this pace. “It was a record soybean planting in Iowa. I think the north-central crop reporting district had 66% like a week ago which is way ahead of schedule, so yeah, so kind of a neat deal to have that situation after the last couple of springs,” Kassel says.The only downside has been a cold snap that spread across the state last week. Kassel says he has not received any reports of frost damage — but the cold is slowing the growth of the one-third of the corn crop that has already emerged from the ground.“Kinda losing out here on leveraging our early planting. We like to plant early to kind of extend the growing season and increase the amount of time during the summer months when we can fill the kernel and the pods that’s probably the overall bigger concern,” according to Kassel.The corn planting progress is now almost one month ahead of last year and two weeks ahead of the 5-year average. Less than 5% of the crop remains to be planted in the northwest and north-central Iowa. The soybean planting is also one full month ahead of last year and more than two weeks ahead of the average.Northwest and north-central Iowa also lead the way in soybean planting with less than 20% remaining to be planted.last_img read more
