With Classrooms Closed, Technology Opens New Possibilities

June 30, 2020

As COVID-19 swept across the world, the routines of students, teachers, administrators and families were upended. Schools were forced to close for all levels of education, and even today, it’s unclear whether students will return in the fall to school as they knew it. As families contended with disruption, school systems around the world found themselves relying on technology to maintain a sense of continuity. Still, school administrators weren’t just shopping for new computers. They were trying to ensure all…

Beginning With the End in Mind

June 25, 2020

I’m fascinated by the ability of design to solve problems. At its core, the circular economy is a revolution in both intention and design. It’s s an industrial system that is restorative or regenerative and it aims to ‘design out’ waste. Waste simply does not exist—products are engineered and optimized for an extended initial lifespan before entering the cycle of disassembly and reuse. I was fortunate to get to talk about just this at a recent virtual panel put on…

The Conversations Changing our Company

Last week, we celebrated Juneteenth – the emancipation of slavery here in the U.S. I personally reflected on how it took more than two years for the news of freedom to spread throughout the country, following the Emancipation Proclamation. Many former slaves had already been freed by June 19, 1865, but on that day, the last remaining slaves in Texas finally achieved their freedom. And so the journey to equality began. The past few weeks have been overwhelming and have…

Research Institutes Lean on Tech in Race for Knowledge and Treatment

June 17, 2020

Researchers around the world are sharply increasing computing power for DNA sequencing, cell research and other projects aimed at understanding and defeating COVID-19. Researchers leading the effort to decode COVID-19 say technology is key to beating the virus and saving lives. “The more quickly we can sequence patient DNA, the more effectively we can use that data to track and respond to the pandemic,” said Dr. Tom Connor, a Reader at Cardiff University in Wales. “Having information available in time…

Setting Up the Perfect Home Office to Maximize Comfort and Productivity

June 16, 2020

While I get ready to start my work day from my home office on this Tuesday morning, I can’t help but think about how remote work is the new reality for many people, maybe even longer term. In fact, according to 451 Research, up to 40 percent of organizations will shift to a more robust work from home environment permanently. While I’ve taken advantage of Dell’s flexibility to occasionally work from home in the past, I can say now –…

Sweet On Dell Technologies: Investing in the Vision

June 15, 2020

So much has changed in the world and in our industry since Dell Technologies returned to the public market. Globally, we’ve seen new trade tensions, political machinations, a pandemic and an outcry for racial justice and socio-economic change. And in our industry, we’ve seen the continued explosion of data accompanied by the rise of multi-cloud, 5G and AI. It’s made for an interesting time to be in the market, whether as an investor or a public company. Now more than…

Standing up for Pride

June 10, 2020

Every year in June, since the 1969 Stonewall riots, we celebrate Pride. We come together to celebrate how far the LGBTQ+ community has come in advancing fundamental human rights, including marriage equality, anti-discrimination and recognition of transgender identity. Pride is also about acknowledging that while we’ve come far these past 50 years, more work is needed to teach tolerance and continue to push for equality. There is no question we are recognizing this year’s Pride Month during really difficult times….

Educate Yourself, Listen, and Stand Up

Since Michael shared his thoughts with the company last week (you can read his full letter below), there have been many powerful conversations across our teams in response to the murder of George Floyd – and the many acts of violence before and since perpetrated against Black men and women. On Thursday of last week, more than 20,000 Dell Technologies team members from around the world gathered on a call hosted by Reshenda Daniels (you can read her note below)…

The Right Shape for Sustainability

June 5, 2020

How a Circular Economy Aligns Business Value with Environmental Preservation For as long as people have been making things, the predominant model has been one of “take-make-waste.” Creators take resources from the environment, make goods with them, and once an object reaches end of life, its material is disposed of as waste. Whether that waste ends up in the landfill, incinerator or the environment, this linear economic model leads straight to an economic dead end — and eventually, a depleted…

Maximize Remote Work: Choosing the Right Monitor for Your Home Office

May 27, 2020

Many companies have quickly pivoted to remote work arrangements for their employees, with some industries working from home for the first time ever. But with the rush to enable remote workforces, many employees end up working 8-12 hours a day off their laptop screens. This is not ideal, especially when working on spreadsheets and switching between different applications for prolonged hours. Monitors are an essential tool for an effective work from home environment—they can improve your employee’s work experience, boost…

The New Normal: Perspectives on What’s to Come and How We’ll Adapt

May 14, 2020

The days and weeks navigating our “new normal” during the global pandemic have been a whirlwind. I am personally hitting my stride with new routines. I’m eating lunch and dinner with my family every day – I can’t remember the last time we did that. I get to have my dogs around 24×7. We face “life-work” balance where the two are now more intertwined than ever…and I know for some, the realities of the virus are hitting too close to…

Welcome the new XPS 15 and 17 with a virtually borderless, 4-sided InfinityEdge display. (Check out 360° view of XPS 15 and XPS 17) Often imitated. Never duplicated. Highly anticipated.

While these new additions to the XPS family offer beautiful new designs and the latest technology innovations, there’s much…

Bring Your Digital Life Over to Your Dell PC with Dell Migrate

I vividly remember when I found my wife scrolling through photos on an old desktop computer that hasn’t been used in over seven years. We had it tucked away in a spare bedroom. I watched her react to the photos and videos of our grown sons as little boys: birthdays, school, sports, vacations and all the ordinary moments in between (made even more extraordinary with the passing of time). It hit me that we were here together, having a classic…

Here’s to the Educators

May 8, 2020

Over the course of the past few months, the teachers that helped our kindergartners read their first books and readied our high schoolers to step out on their own as adults have seen unprecedented challenges. Educators’ roles dramatically adjusted as schools around the world shifted to remote learning. Many had to completely surrender expectations for the end of their school year, and most didn’t have the opportunity to give their students a proper send-off. Every day is teacher appreciation day,…

Earth Day 2020: Activating Change

April 22, 2020

This year, Earth Day comes at a time when we are all adjusting to a new way of life. To protect the health of our global community, we are all doing our part – staying at home, observing social distancing guidelines, and embracing new virtual ways of staying connected. And with the world’s largest environmental event moving online, it reinforces that while protecting human health is the priority, there are also many ways we can continue to engage and remain…

Partners, We’re Here for You

April 9, 2020

COVID-19 has changed the way we work, the way we interact, and the way we approach public health. But it hasn’t changed our commitment to our partners. We have our partners’ backs. We always have, and always will. That’s why we’ve been working on ways we can continue to support our partners – so they can continue to support their customers – during this unpredictable time. IMMEDIATE RELIEF FOR PARTNERS We understand that financing and cash flow liquidity play an…

Teaming Up for World Health

April 7, 2020

For 70 years, April 7 has marked the recognition of World Health Day. It has always served as an opportunity to shine a light on the critical aspects of global health. This year, it goes without saying, that we as global citizens are facing, and uniting to fight, the unprecedented impact of COVID-19. Our nurses, healthcare workers and first responders are working tirelessly on the frontlines of COVID-19. And let’s not forget that, in the midst of a pandemic, this…

Autism Awareness Month: Meet Some of Our Neurodiverse Team Members

April 2, 2020

My son, Ben, is fifteen years old. He’s bright, confident and will be a great businessman one day. He can tell you all about our products and solutions, including detailed specifications and their related benefits and capabilities. However, when it comes time for him to enter the workforce in just a few short years, statistics show he will face challenges on his journey to employment. Nearly half of 25-year-olds on the autism spectrum have never held a paying job. With…

A Letter from Michael Dell: We’re Here to Help

March 13, 2020

To our customers and partners: With the full impact of the COVID-19 virus uncertain, our world feels unsettled. I was with our global team in a virtual town hall this week where we talked a lot about this, and our priorities to keep each other and our communities healthy and safe and take care of our customers’ most critical needs. I thought I’d share some of that conversation with you and update you on the things we are doing, as…

Technology: The Great Equalizer in the 2020 Census

March 12, 2020

Since the United States’ early history, a national census has been taken to provide a complete and accurate count of all residents. But in 1790, the U.S. was home to fewer than 4 million. Today with nearly 330 million residents, technology is critical to making this count possible. Dell is one of the technology companies providing laptops and IT infrastructure to ensure a complete and accurate 2020 census. Using technology to drive human progress is core to who we are…

How Will You Open the Door to Gender Equality?

March 5, 2020

International Women’s Day (IWD) is coming up, which is a fantastic opportunity to reinforce what we at Dell Technologies know to be true every day: gender equality is a business imperative that requires our collective action and shared ownership. That’s why I love the theme of this year’s IWD, “Each for Equal.” It’s a call for every person—male or female—to take personal action. Personal action from our 165,000 Dell Technologies team members is the only way we’ll meet our diversity…

An Overview of the EMEA Sales Graduate Program

February 26, 2020

Incremental changes can determine sizable progress. This key phrase summarizes Dell’s milestones in a nutshell — from a dorm room to a multinational company. At first, the mantra “Technology that enables human progress” might seem like it centers on automation and machinery as progress-drivers. But it revolves around people, those who develop technology solutions, and those who use them. The incremental changes in any domain start with people, as they are the enablers of transformation and the driving force behind…

The Future of the Workplace in 1-5-10 Years

We explored the future: one year out, five years out, and 10 years out.  Here’s where we arrived: One Year: The Duality of the Mobile Workforce While…

Dell Technologies helps Schools Across the US Erase E-Waste

February 18, 2020

On Feb. 18, 2012, the inaugural World CSR Day brought together global representatives from both the private and public sector to share experiences, challenges and opportunities to build a better society. Fast-forward to the year 2020, that inaugural event turned out to be a harbinger for things to come. Eight years later, we regularly see people vow to use only metal straws, cities banning plastic bags, and corporations pledging to go carbon neutral. In fact, I’m proud to say that…

Symphony Technology Group Enters Definitive Agreement with Dell Technologies to Acquire RSA

Today, Symphony Technology Group announced a definitive agreement with Dell Technologies to purchase RSA. We believe this is the right long-term strategy for both RSA and Dell Technologies to ensure the full potential of each organization can be reached. For RSA, that is best achieved independent of Dell Technologies and will be in the best interest of our collective customers and partners. As we enter the next data decade, our customers need to secure and protect data everywhere it exists…
