It’s difficult to imagine there was a time when wireless networks, mobile devices, and IP-based collaboration platforms were viewed as unsuitable for the enterprise. Today, we can’t go a day without these technologies at work.The Dell Technologies team predicts the Internet of Things (IoT) will follow the same adoption curve. However, we understand the risks associated with IoT are significant. Customers have to think about workplace safety, security, customer experience; but perhaps more important, they also need to think about people’s livelihoods and jobs, which can be disrupted by automation.But we believe in the power of consumerization, and that our desire for productivity and efficiency is stronger than our fears.Dell Technologies is uniquely positioned to drive the changes necessary to bring IoT to an organization of all sizes. Through our breadth of experience, we’ve acquired a rich body of knowledge deploying IoT at scale, which enables us to reduce the risks associated with IoT; from interoperability to unpredictability. We are packaging the lessons we’ve learned through our journey to create IoT Connected Bundles for the channel partners which are repeatable solutions with proven IoT wins for customers.It is quite a complicated process to build the IoT solutions which are a mix of components like sensors, gateways, partner software applications and network connections to create the end-to-end solution. Dell Technologies brings together Technology and Services partners with the essential IoT components into an award-winning IoT Solutions Partner Program. With the growing partner base, the program’s extensive and smart curation process has helped us identify the first eight solutions to participate in the new “IoT Connected Bundles” program with a built-in method for partners to bubble up for consideration for engineered solutions and bring vertical solutions to market with Dell Technologies capabilities. Our engineered solutions are developed and tested by Dell Technologies and are comprised of a combination of at least two portfolio assets together with additional IP. We’re engineering a foundational infrastructure suite that’s composed of purely Dell Technologies assets which turn into use-case specific solutions when partner and/or end customer extensions are applied. We are at a fascinating phase with IoT at Dell Technologies, and I could not be more excited to be part of this journey.The IoT Connected bundles could be looked at as an extension to your strengths as a trusted IT services company to install and manage IoT with the same security and rigor you bring to your existing systems. Hardware, software, and peripherals — all it takes to deploy each solution can be now found in one single box. De-risk IoT with simplified deployment for rapid RoI. The IoT Connected Bundles leverage the Dell Technologies portfolio to bring IoT value to main street faster than ever before.The IoT Connected Bundles are a vital part of our commitment to investing in IoT. Last year’s IoT Strategy Launch led to many conversations with partners and customers. Today, we have a better understanding than ever of the challenges and opportunities before them. Our mission is to deliver IoT solutions that are purpose-built, approachable, and interoperable and stand the test of time. We’re setting our sights on solving practical business problems with common-sense solutions, accessible to a broad set of consumers. For the first seven IoT Connected Bundles, we’ve partnered with domain experts in energy savings for grocery retailers while improving food quality and safety, self-contained and powered surveillance for safety and security in outdoor spaces, compliance-aaS for HVAC, refrigeration and power systems, advanced Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), efficient remote monitoring of field assets in Oil and Gas operations, predictive maintenance in midmarket manufacturing and digital manufacturing intelligence suite for larger-scale operations.These solutions bring forth benefits that make a measurable difference. The surveillance IoT Connected Bundles solution can make cities safer more efficiently than traditional solutions by entirely bypassing the costly, and regulation-heavy electrical trenching process. The cold-chain IoT Connected Bundles solution enables food retailers to reduce food waste, minimize the use of environmental resources and bring fresher produce to into our kitchens. The oil & gas field monitoring IoT Connected Bundles solution not only lowers operational costs but makes it safer for field workers to track pivotal data — its technology can identify threats like changes in temperature, pressure, or even a potential leak.We are excited to announce the first four IoT Connected Bundles solutions with ELM Fieldsight, Modius, V5 Systems in NA and ActionPoint in EMEA will be available in September 2018. Three other solutions with Pixel Velocity, Software AG, and IMS Evolve will be available this in Q3, and more are in consideration for rollout in 2019.The IoT Connected Bundles will be offered exclusively to our channel partners, “Tech Data is proud of the IoT solutions we are making available to our customers around the world. These offerings are further testimony of the increasing importance of the solution aggregator role we play in IoT & Analytics. Bringing together the required components from different vendors in the form of solutions that are proven, validated and deployed at scale provides production-ready solutions for our customers and significantly speeds up the time to revenue.” Craig Smith, vice president, IoT & Analytics Europe, Tech Data.We are committed to be the essential infrastructure company for businesses and communities of all types and sizes. Taking the guesswork out of IoT and accelerating access for a wide range of customers, delivers on our mission of making innovation real, for everyone.

Didier Drogba had Chelsea’s best chance in a goalless first half in the FA Cup third-round clash at Stamford Bridge.The veteran striker rose to meet Loic Remy’s cross on the half-hour mark but his effort was saved at the near post by Watford keeper Jonathan Bond.Remy, making only his fourth Blues start as one of eight changes, joined Andre Schurrle and Gary Cahill in wasting excellent chances to score.Schurrle should have found the target when Drogba controlled a long ball forward superbly and found his team-mate in acres of space inside the box.Cahill flicked over from close range with just the keeper to beat and then glanced a header wide of the far post shortly before half-time.Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho handed keeper Petr Cech his eighth start of the campaign and he was called upon to stop Daniel Tozser and Troy Deeney giving Championship side Watford the lead.Youngster Kurt Zouma also made a rare start along with Felipe Luis, John Mikel Obi and Ramires, with John Terry, Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard left out of the matchday squad.Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Cahill, Luis; Mikel, Ramires; Oscar, Schurrle, Remy; Drogba.Subs: Courtois, Ivanovic, Ake, Salah, Costa, Matic, Willian.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
You’ve heard that relationship selling is dead. It isn’t. And because we are human beings, relationships aren’t going anywhere, even if that doesn’t mean that our business relationships aren’t going to include some economic value creating component.By my count, we’ve spent the past couple decades trying to turn our relationships as buyers and sellers into something transactional—all the while bemoaning the repercussions of that choice, like commoditization, disintermediation, low margins, and high customer churn rates. Clients have relentlessly complained about poor service, poor results, and a lack of caring.We’ve chased the bottom for too long. And this is where it’s gotten us.We are on the front end of a flight to value. And we are on the front end of a flight to relationships. We want relationships back—with all of the benefits that come with them.We Want to Be More Than a TransactionWe want the people and companies we buy from to know us. We want them to know our names.We want to know people. We want them to know what we like and what we don’t like. We want them to look out for us, to make sure that what we buy is really going to serve our needs.We want the people and companies we buy from to go the extra mile because we have a relationship. We want them to anticipate our needs, to give us a heads-up when something that they know we would love comes available.We want to trust them. We want to know that they will always do right by us, even when doing right might cost them a few bucks.We want the people and companies we buy from to be worth paying more to obtain. We want them to deliver additional value, and we want them to capture some of that value.We Want Our Clients to Be Loyal, Raving FansWe want our clients and customers to love us. We want them to be loyal customers. We don’t want them to buy from anyone else, especially not to save a few pennies. We want them to rave to the people they know to buy from us, too.We want our clients to know us. We want them to trust us. We want them to look at us as part of their team, their trusted advisors. We want them to treat us like consultative salespeople, not transactional salespeople.We want deep relationships with our clients. We want the kind of relationships where we aren’t treated like a transaction and where we aren’t expected to behave like a transaction.We want them to give us a 100% of their wallet share. We want them to pay us more than they’d pay the other guys, and we want them to let us capture some of the value we create. And we want them to let us help them invest enough to get the results that they really need.We want the chance to do the work that makes all of this possible, especially creating the deep, trusted relationships that make our business more human, more value creating, and less transactional.The flight to relationships is coming. For some of us, it’s already here.QuestionsHow important are relationships to how you sell?How important to you are relationships when you are making a major, strategic purchase?How do your relationships add value to a deal?Why are people more and more willing to pay more for the results they need?Why are people more willing to invest in relationships, even if costs a bit more?

Thirty-seven animation instructors from 17 institutions across the island have been trained in advanced 2D and 3D animation techniques through the ‘Train The Trainers’ Module three Programme (TTT 3).The six-week training programme, held from July 3 to August 11, was aimed at enhancing the effectiveness in the delivery of local animation training programmes.The training was facilitated under the Youth Employment in Digital and Animation Industries (YEDAI) Project signed between the Government of Jamaica and the World Bank Group.Participants benefitted from training conducted by instructors from Capilano University in Canada. Focus areas included drawing for instructors; character design process; principles of animation; and special effects animation.Speaking at the closing ceremony, held on Friday (August 11) at the Excelsior Community College in Kingston, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology, Hillary Alexander, said the programme aims to prepare animators to participate in the US$243 billion animation and gaming industry.“For some of you, today’s ceremony is the culmination of the programme which started in July 2015. For others, this was your first time participating. Regardless of where the journey started for you, one thing is certain, the training you have received in this module have been instrumental in preparing you to meet market-driven demands,” she said.The Permanent Secretary added “this will definitely assist in placing our country firmly on a path to developing the industry and creating meaningful jobs for our country.”For his part, Programme Instructor, Adam Sale, said the 8,000 training hours were well spent and encouraged all stakeholders to continue practising the lessons learned.“I want to stress the importance of giving faculty more time to work with their craft [and] to stay current with software. The best way to take advantage of faculty is to give them knowledge, which they can then impart back to their students and the only way to do that is to give them time,” he said.He added that animation continues to grow in Jamaica and with continued support from Government and (other stakeholders), progress will continue.First introduced in July 2015, the ‘Train The Trainers’ Module 1 focused on equipping Jamaican animation instructors with effective teaching strategies, techniques and methodologies in the fundamental principles of 2D and 3D animation using a combination of theoretical and practical approaches.The programme was continued the following year with the ‘Train The Trainers’ Module 2 taking a more practical approach based on technical skills learned in TTT1.The TTT programme was designed in collaboration with Jamaican Animation Studios, Educational Institutions and International Education Experts and is being implemented by the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology.
