Making it Easier for Customers to Successfully Implement IoT

first_imgA lot of companies say they are focused on their customers, yet very few have a dedicated function specifically focused on the customer experience that advocates for customers and applies a customer lens to all areas of the business, from product development to go-to-market and from pricing and operations to post-sales service and support.Every day, Dell Technologies is making digital transformation real for our customers — addressing customer needs and success metrics at every point in their customer experience journey and by providing the broadest technology and solutions portfolio in the market. As part of the Chief Customer Office (CCO), my role is to ensure our customer’s voice and success metrics remains front and center in every decision we make. That’s why I couldn’t be more excited about today’s news that we are establishing a Dell Technologies IoT division.For our customers the time has never been better for IoT implementation and adoption. Harbor Research [1] estimates that by 2020, smart systems alone will create over 194 petabytes of data — that’s 64x the amount of data believed to be in the Library of Congress today. There’s a massive amount of data being generated and an equally giant opportunity for organizations to capitalize on the insights and opportunities this data can provide.It pays to do so. In Vodafone’s fifth annual IoT Barometer Report, 51 percent of adopters say IoT is increasing revenue or opening up new revenue streams. These capabilities paired with the cost of sensors rapidly approaching near zero, cloud, connectivity and a continuation of Moore’s Law is creating a ubiquitous opportunity for interoperability and insights that will fundamentally change the way we work, live and play.Beyond the power of our differentiated solutions portfolio, customers are looking to us to make it easier for them to usher in the digital future. As a customer solutions advocate, I often help our customers and sales teams successfully navigate big, complex IT landscapes so they can ultimately deliver business results. The Dell Technologies family of companies — Dell Inc., Dell EMC, Pivotal, RSA, SecureWorks, Virtustream and VMWare — is uniquely positioned to provide the end-to-end solutions our customers need. With the creation of our new IoT division, we’ve made it even simpler by giving customers one source/one stop to help them navigate and implement our edge-to-core-to-cloud portfolio as well as tailored end-to-end IOT solutions and services.At Dell Technologies, we believe our customers’ success is our success. We celebrate the progress many of our customers are making on their digital transformations and in our Annual Report for Customers.  In addition to simpler solutions that drive faster success and results, customers want to maximize their technology investments. We provide a number of enhanced benefits to enable our customers’ success and help them get the most out of their IoT implementations and investments. For example, Dell’s flexible consumption offering allows customers to turn their CapEx into OpEx as they usher in new technologies. In addition, customers of the new IoT division will have a single point of contact for support as well as access to strategic advisory services to help them lower time to results, reduce implementation risk and deliver results.Working within the CCO, I speak to, act and advocate on behalf of our customers to ensure we are providing the solutions they need and continually making it easier to do business with Dell. I’m looking forward to our customers’ response and their success with our new offerings — and the many more we can uniquely provide as Dell Technologies. Share your thoughts on what Dell can deliver next to help you usher in the digital future.[1] “Smart Systems Forecast Model” Harbor Research, Inc., 2015last_img read more

PCI compliance, why credit unions need to annually review their compliance

first_imgThe nature of a credit union is to hold and secure sensitive information. For that very reason, many companies choose to partner with payment providers because they need someone to help them meet the highest compliance and security levels to keep their customer’s banking information safe.At BillingTree, we take security very seriously and comply with all applicable regulations. While some companies may take the fastest route to handle your payments, we take every precaution to ensure you and your member’s information is secure.What is PCI Compliance?So what exactly do we mean when we say PCI-DSS? This is the most well-known compliance standard, and it was created to enact controls around how companies handle cardholder data to decrease credit card fraud. If you’re shopping around for providers, then this is one you NEED them to have.

Asymptomatic transmission poses ever-present threat: COVID-19 task force

first_img“We need to realize that discipline is a must at all times. If we are even just a little careless and ignore the health protocols, we will be exposed,” he said.“COVID-19 is real. It is not fabricated and not a conspiracy.”Read also: Several patients contracted COVID-19 despite ‘never leaving home’: Task forceDoni, who is also the head of the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB), also reminded the community that those engaging in activities outside of their homes without properly protecting themselves would end up harming their family members and those closest to them. National COVID-19 task force chief Doni Monardo has issued a stern warning to the public about the importance of following COVID-19 protocols at all times, explaining that a person could carry the virus without knowing it and end up transmitting it to their family members and those closest to them.“COVID-19 is dangerous. But, the humans who carry COVID-19 are far more dangerous,” Doni said in a statement on Sunday, as quoted by tempo.co.Doni said that many people were continuing to ignore health protocols, such as maintaining physical distance, wearing a mask and avoiding crowds, as they assumed they were immune to COVID-19 or even doubted there was a pandemic at all. Around 7 percent of COVID-19 patients currently receiving treatment at the Wisma Atlet COVID-19 emergency hospital in Jakarta said they had rarely or never left home prior to their treatment, Doni said, reiterating his previous statement.There are no more safe places, he said, adding that the threat of infection was ever-present and that humans would continue to be the intermediaries of the virus.Doni explained that if a vaccine was found, it would not completely eliminate the virus and only provide stronger immunity against infection.“COVID-19 will continue to exist. Those who are vaccinated will be able to withstand it, while those who are not vaccinated will still be exposed,” he said. (syk)Topics :last_img read more
