Dell OEM Solutions and Emerson Usher in New Era of Automation for Oil and Gas, Chemical and Other Industries

Dell OEM Solutions today announced a global collaboration with Emerson Process Management, a business of Emerson, to deliver solutions to help a multitude of organizations around the world improve productivity by increasing output, cutting production costs, reducing energy use, and improving safety and emissions. Through the relationship with Dell, Emerson helps customers automate production, processing, and distribution of oil and gas, electricity, medicine, clean drinking water, and more.

Emerson chose Dell as a key partner to deploy its process control solution, the Emerson DeltaV™ Digital Automation System, which allows customers to expedite developing, manufacturing and delivering innovative products and services. Dell OEM Solutions customized Dell PowerEdge servers, Dell PowerVault storage arrays, Dell PowerEdge VRTX Simplified Infrastructure Platform, Dell Precision workstations and Dell Wyse thin clients to power key elements of the DeltaV system. Emerson also relies on Dell’s OEM-Ready platforms and its Dell OEM XL Program to further increase DeltaV’s availability, stability and flexibility.

When the Emerson Innovation Center in Round Rock, Texas officially opened in January 2014, it became the third Emerson center of its kind worldwide. The mission of the 282,000-square-foot, $70 million facility is to enable customers to improve the safety, reliability and profitability of their operations. Emerson piloted a new approach to remote management of operations, including unmanned, offshore oil and gas platforms, and now Emerson’s state-of-art center helps customers visualize and manage operations powered by Dell solutions and other technologies.

The Emerson DeltaV Digital Automation System – powered by Dell technology – enables organizations around the globe, including:

  • Natural gas company delivers electricity to the largest island in the Philippines: The Malampaya Deepwater Gas Project is leading the industry in the use of an offshore, remotely monitored gas processing platform. Now Emerson monitors 1,500 remote field devices to identify potential issues before they disrupt gas supplies, resulting in 99.98 percent facility uptime since 2001.
  • Major Canadian city produces 500 million liters of water daily: The system is used to monitor input from 3,100 sensors at a water treatment plant and deliver clean water to its residents at a cost of less than one Canadian penny per liter.
  • Life sciences company produces a new antibody: A life sciences company needed to design and build out a complex manufacturing process to produce monoclonal antibodies for advance disease research. The company successfully launched production in just three years and stayed on budget.
  • Large industrial chemicals manufacturer improves energy use: An industrial chemicals multinational wanted to revamp controls on product recovery operations. After project completion and installation of advanced controls, the company achieved 18 percent reduction in energy costs relative to past operations with no adverse impact to operations.

“We give our global customers more choice by working with Dell because the hardware and software that support DeltaV have longer lifecycles, so that customers can increase control over their environments,” said Jim Nyquist, president of Emerson Process Management’s Systems and Solutions business. “Dell understands the specialized needs of our marketplace and meets our requirements for extremely high availability.”

“We are proud to partner with Emerson to deliver an industry-leading process control solution,” said Joyce Mullen, vice president and general manager OEM Solutions, Dell. “The teamwork between Emerson and Dell engineers is having a positive impact on our world by enabling so many critical industries to deliver more for their customers.”

Dell OEM Solutions has helped more than 2,000 global customers in 40 vertical markets accelerate their time to market with customizable tier one OEM technologies. Demand for Dell OEM solutions has surged due to growing need for intelligent systems that meet standardization, compliance, management and security requirements.

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago.

The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.

This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
