Launching a successful IoT project is not an easy task. It requires testing, integrating, and managing thousands of connected smart devices as well as teamwork from multiple players, including solution integrators, IT teams, OT managers, and device manufacturers. Finding the right solution partners–who can collaborate effectively and efficiently without stepping on each other–is often the biggest challenge.
To learn how to forge IoT partnerships and viable, repeatable solutions, the IoT Integrator Wire editors in our latest podcast sat down with Lesek Demont, Global OT-SI Strategy Manager at Intel, and member of The Channel Company’s IoT Advisory Board.
Demont focuses on the Intel channel strategy with an emphasis on management of partner relationships and channel partner development. She has more than 15 years of experience in partner programs and previously was an IoT partner business development manager for Cisco’s worldwide channels. (Spoiler alert: Demont’s love of IoT even carries over onto her car license plate.)
Inside the IoT Ecosystem
In our podcast, Demont describes how Intel built its thriving ecosystem of 480-plus market-ready, repeatable IoT solutions that have now been deployed more than 50,000 times globally. She offers advice for solution integrators on how to join the Intel® IoT Solutions Marketplace and form cohesive, successful IoT technology alliances. She also predicts what will be the biggest growth areas for IoT solutions in 2023.
