Dell Launches Smart Cities Part­ner Ecosys­tem to Help Con­struct a Fu­ture-ready In­dia

Dataquest - - INDUSTRY -

Dell an­nounced the foun­da­tion of the Smart City Part­ner Ecosys­tem, a net­work of or­ga­ni­za­tions with tech­nol­ogy ex­per­tise to ad­dress the Smart City op­por­tu­nity in In­dia. This net­work brings to­gether play­ers of­fer­ing dif­fer­ent so­lu­tions and ca­pa­bil­i­ties that will help in ex­e­cu­tion of Smart Cities & IoT projects. Cur­rently, the net­work has 12 part­ners, with more com­ing on board. To­gether, this part­ner ecosys­tem will jointly go to mar­ket with end-to-end of­fer­ings to aid In­dia’s next phase of growth.

The gov­ern­ment’s am­bi­tious ‘100 Smart Cities’ pro­gram aims at ad­dress­ing the in­fra­struc­ture gap to make cities more liv­able, be­sides en­hanc­ing the busi­ness and in­vest­ment cli­mate. Cen­tral and state gov­ern­ments are mak­ing sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ments in in­no­va­tive smart city pro­grams to im­prove the qual­ity of life for res­i­dents and vis­i­tors. The so­lu­tions to de­velop and ex­e­cute smart cities’ projects can broadly be cat­e­go­rized as:

Ap­pli­ca­tions, for delivery and mon­i­tor­ing of ser­vices 8 www.dqin­ to ci­ti­zens such as garbage track­ing, en­ergy man­age­ment, traf­fic man­age­ment, etc.

Dig­i­tal In­fra­struc­ture, which is the foun­da­tion upon which ap­pli­ca­tions can run; such as com­pute, stor­age, dat­a­cen­ters, vir­tu­al­iza­tion, net­work, etc.

Smart Cities need su­pe­rior dig­i­tal ar­chi­tects and dig­i­tal in­fra­struc­ture to en­sure proper plan­ning and ex­e­cu­tion. They also rely heav­ily on a solid dig­i­tal foun­da­tion and smart data man­age­ment. Hav­ing im­ple­mented and ex­e­cuted sev­eral projects glob­ally, Dell is able to bring global best prac­tices to In­dia, as well as cus­tom­ize so­lu­tions to match In­dian ne­ces­si­ties.
