IRDG’s Smart Connected Devices Series – Dell EMC, 27th Sept

“IoT”, Michael Dell said, “allows companies to use the vast amounts of data they generate to design better products, improve operations and customer experience”.
(Michael Dell’s 7 Keys To The Future Of Dell Technologies And The IT Industry, May 2017)

IRDG is delighted to continue our Smart Connected Devices (SCD) Series for members.  In today’s Intelligence Age – the connected world, there’s an evolving ecosystem of smart, connected devices, machines and systems that interact and are changing our lives and businesses.  This new era requires a rethinking and remaking of the goods, products, services and processes that surround us.  This impact stretches across all sectors of industry, and the opportunities, and needs, for innovation are many.
