OEMs crit­i­cal to help VSPs bring dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion

Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

DUBAI: Dell EMC and lead­ing IT mar­ket re­search and ad­vi­sory firm IDC’s spot­light on dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion for VSPs pre­dicts that en­ter­prises who are quick to em­brace dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion trends will out­grow their com­pe­ti­tion, with those too slow to re­act will strug­gle to sur­vive. The re­port finds that many dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion-re­lated tech­nolo­gies are still in their nascent stages but will have a pro­found im­pact across the fol­low­ing ver­ti­cals in the next three years, and OEMs will be crit­i­cal in help­ing VSPs take ad­van­tage of these ad­vance­ments in line with the be­low find­ings: Health­care

The com­ing years in health­care will fo­cus on the adop­tion of dis­rup­tive tech­nolo­gies, with IDC pre­dict­ing that: Pay­ers will have saved $1 bil­lion glob­ally through im­ple­men­ta­tion of ro­botic process au­to­ma­tion (RPA) tools, skill sets and process reengi­neer­ing by the end of 2018.

60 per­cent of health­care ap­pli­ca­tions will col­lect real-time lo­ca­tion data and clin­i­cal IoT de­vice data by 2019.

There will be a 50 per­cent in­crease in the use of robots in med­i­ca­tions, sup­plies, and food de­liv­ery in hos­pi­tals by 2019. Man­u­fac­tur­ing

Dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion tech­nolo­gies are al­ready present in the man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor and bench­marks of the fu­ture will quickly shift from pure pro­duc­tiv­ity to in­no­va­tion. IDC pre­dicts that:

75 per­cent of large man­u­fac­tur­ers will up­date their op­er­a­tions with IoT and an­a­lyt­ics-based sit­u­a­tional aware­ness by 2019.

60 per­cent of plant work­ers at G2000 man­u­fac­tures will work along­side robots, 3D print­ing, AI and AR/VR by 2020.

50 per­cent of man­u­fac­tur­ing sup­ply chains will have an in-house or out­sourced ca­pa­bil­ity for di­rect-to-con­sump­tion ship­ments and home de­liv­ery by 2020. Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions

The fu­ture of telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions will be based around vir­tu­al­ized and soft­ware-de­fined net­work­ing (SDN) with a huge im­pact across ver­ti­cals, lead­ing IDC to pre­dict that:

90 per­cent of en­ter­prises will lever­age com­mu­ni­ca­tions ser­vice provider ‘cloud con­nect’ ser­vices to ac­cess mul­ti­ple public cloud ca­pa­bil­i­ties by 2018.

More than 65 per­cent of en­ter­prise UC&C im­ple­men­ta­tions will be cloud-based UC as a Ser­vice by 2018.

Soft­ware-de­fined wide area net­works will be adopted by 60 per­cent of en­ter­prises by 2018.

To stay com­pet­i­tive, VSPs should fo­cus on con­stantly in­no­vat­ing around their key dif­fer­en­tia­tors and shed as much of other as­pects of their busi­ness as pos­si­ble, such as man­u­fac­tur­ing, ship­ping, and sup­port. OEMs of­ten of­fer cus­tomiza­tion of their build­ing blocks to fit VSPs’ needs and in some in­stances, OEMs not only sup­ply so­lu­tion com­po­nents, but also man­u­fac­ture, pack­age, and ship the so­lu­tion it­self. As a re­sult, IDC ad­vises busi­nesses to part­ner with a strong OEM with a dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion-ready port­fo­lio in or­der to emerge as a mar­ket leader.

“Dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion is quickly be­com­ing the ban­ner term for or­ga­ni­za­tions’ in­no­va­tion strat­egy. But many are still in the early stages of im­ple­ment­ing the changes needed to bring their com­pa­nies to the next level. This IDC re­search demon­strates how key it is that or­ga­ni­za­tions un­der­stand that they are not alone in tack­ling this chal­lenge - OEMs can be the an­swer to meet­ing the fu­ture head on,” said Dermot O’Con­nell, vice pres­i­dent, Dell EMC OEM and IOT So­lu­tions.
