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 often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

Back in February of 2017, Andrew Clay Schafer of Pivotal tweeted the following: “seriously tho, the whole software industry is stuck on deployment when we desperately need architecture and telemetry.” Intrigue in a 140 characters.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
