IT firm Atos and Dell EMC said Tuesday they are joining forces to address the growing Internet of Things (IoT) and business analytics markets.

Both companies are working together to build an IoT service management framework which they say will be called Atos Codex IoT Services.

The Atos Codex IoT Services framework will contain a catalogue of services including management of devices, connectivity, data and storage, change and release control, incident management, service desk and support, and the operations to increase resilience against failures or disturbances, according to Dell EMC.

These services will be delivered with user-defined service levels, including the necessary security measures for access management and data encryption. The framework also defines an architecture blueprint, containing hardware and software solutions from Dell EMC as well as software solutions and integration services from Atos, the company added.

“Atos’ approach to enabling IoT use cases for achieving operational efficiency, customer engagement, and business transformation meets a clear market requirement,” said Yugal Joshi, Practice Director at Everest Group.  “Its capabilities across the IoT stack, enhanced by strategic investments, partnerships, such as with Dell EMC, and experience in executing large-scale projects drives continuous value delivery and improved business outcomes for the customers.”
