In 2017, Dicker Data launched Australia’s first and only channel-focused Internet of Things (IoT) Community to address the thousands of partner businesses across Australia that want to get involved in IoT, but don’t know where to start. Many partner businesses are struggling to define and articulate the business value that can be delivered by the IoT and when their customers ask about IoT, they’re quick to change the topic.
Dicker Data partners with specialist IoT vendors to package solutions which help our clients make their first move into IoT. These can be easily deployed to start delivering valuable business insights within days of implementation. In addition to packaged solutions we have partnered with vendors who can enable partners to deploy IoT networks and deliver business value with a flexible, easily deploy-able IoT solution stack.
Examples of the IoT solutions offered by Dicker Data include:
Buddy Ohm is a complete resource monitoring solution for commercial, industrial and multi-family residential buildings. The system is made up of IoT class hardware, the Buddy Cloud, plus engaging software experiences.
