Nowadays a lot of amendments have been seen in the field of science and technology. Keeping in mind the fourth industrial revolution with all the new technologies, Dell EMC, the global computer data storage company is building an IT infrastructure for citizen services like Aadhar facility in ‘Digital India’. Dell EMC India Managing Director Rajesh Janey told the sources that, “As a leading hardware vendor, we build IT infrastructure also for the government to provide citizen services like Aadhaar, passports, invoices of customs and GST settlements.”

As we know that the US-based Dell Technologies has always been hard-selling its computers, laptops, tablets, and servers in Indian Market for many years, now they have began providing data storage, hybrid Cloud and data protection solutions to enterprises and state-run organisations following its acquisition of EMC in 2016 for a whopping $67-billion (Rs 4.61 lakh crore).

"Data on the unique identification card (Aadhaar) issued to citizens is run and stored on our server racks managed by third-party vendors," Janey stated in an exclusive interview. In September 2016, Dell Technologies gained Massachusetts-based information stockpiling frameworks major EMC Corp, established in 1979 and named after its organizers Richard Egan, Roger Marino and John Curly, in one of the biggest arrangements in the innovation area, around the world. Also, passports are documented on the organization's storage while Customs and Excise divisions utilize Dell IT framework to raise solicitations for organizations.

"Our products and solutions enable enterprises to undergo the digital transformation as part of the fourth industrial revolution, leaving behind legacies such as mainframes, client servers, and networked workstations," Janey added.

"More mundane and routine tasks will get offloaded to machines," he noted. As per the industry estimates, the number of IoT devices, devices, home appliances and vehicles connected through the internet, will explode to 200 billion over the next decade from 20 billion in 2020.

"Dropping cost of networking is fuelling the growth of IoT devices. At the same time, when we have so many devices with data, we need AI to analyse and convert it into actionable intelligence, thereby removing the routine tasks," the top executive noted. The evolution of sectors will happen as these technologies are being introduced into them, said Janey, who was earlier EMC's President for India and the South Asia region.

"The future requires the rethinking of what an intelligent human being can do. Our belief is the skilling of the workforce will change. People will move away from mundane tasks to higher level skills. Secretarial work will be passed," he pointed out. With around 1.3 billion people and growing, India is a huge market for any industry, Janey admitted.

"Skilling our people through initiatives like the government's Skill India and courses by educational institutions on Big Data are key, as sectors are undergoing the digital transformation. We are investing $4.5 billion on research and development in fiscal 2018-19. India contributes significantly to the research, particularly in servers." he added. "India is ahead of other developing nations in the use of digital infrastructure," he disclosed.
