CES 2020: Dell and Alienware Bring Their Battle Cry To CES With A Range Of Gaming Innovations

January 6, 2020

In 2002, Dell was dipping its toe into multimedia home entertainment and Alienware launched the industry’s first gaming laptop, the Area-51m, a landmark in portable gaming. It was an amazing moment for die-hard gamers to play popular titles like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City anywhere they wanted. Power plus mobility, gamers could have it all.

December 30, 2019

Dell Technologies recently sponsored Haitian post-college professional Nahomie Auguste’s trip to One Young World, a global forum that gathers young leaders from around the world to develop solutions to the world’s most pressing issues. This year’s forum was held in London. Nahomie had twice applied for sponsorships to attend One Young World; however, she was rejected both times. But Nahomie refused to give up.

The Unseen Ballet: The Intersection of Technology and Humanity

At Dell Technologies, we are technology optimists. Meaning we truly believe technology has the power to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges, break down barriers, and create opportunity for all. We work hard to bring this belief and our commitment to inclusion to life through our brand – from the advertising we create to the experiences we build not only for our customers but our communities and the world.

At Dell Technologies, people are a priority

December 17, 2019

In fact, at Dell, our stated purpose is to create technologies that drive human progress. This purpose has been consistent for many years, and it’s centered around people, all people. Not only the customers we seek to serve, but also our employees, suppliers and individuals who work in our supply chain. Through our reach, technology and global workforce, we’re dedicated…

Paving the way for the Next Data Decade

December 11, 2019

It’s hard to believe that we’re heading into the year 2020 – a year that many have marked as a milestone in technology. Autonomous cars lining our streets, virtual assistants predicting our needs and taking our requests, connected and intelligent everything across every industry. When I stop to think about what has been accomplished over the last decade – it’s quite remarkable.  While we don’t have fully autonomous cars zipping back and forth across major freeways with ease, automakers are…

There’s Still So Much More We Can Do

December 6, 2019

As an open water swimmer, it pains me to see so much waste and plastic floating around in our seas and oceans. Did you know, in some places, plastic particles already outnumber plankton by 26 to 1. That’s not good. Not for marine life. Not for the planet. And ultimately, not for us. What we’ve been doing Luckily, there’s much that we can do and it fills me with joy to see that many individuals and companies are taking steps…

Driving Digital Access for the One and the One Billion

December 3, 2019

In many areas around the world, the lack of reliable, affordable electricity has been one of the biggest barriers to providing technology access to students. In some cases, schools cannot keep the lights on and power a computer lab simultaneously. One program that Dell Technologies has initiated to help break this cycle is our Solar Learning Labs, which seek to close the learning gap by partnering directly with Computer Aid International to deliver computer labs built in converted, well-ventilated shipping containers,…

Tips to Help Keep Cybercriminals at Bay This Holiday

November 25, 2019

We love online shopping. Cybercriminals do, too. The uptick in online shopping during the holidays means more chances for cybercriminals to steal your data. This can happen in any number of ways – visiting compromised websites, clicking on phishing emails or fake social media posts, falling for holiday charity scams and even buying from fraudulent shopping sites. The methods vary and cybercriminals get more innovative each year, but their goal remains the same: steal your personal and financial information. Here…

Fashion and Technology at the Crossroads

November 22, 2019

Designing things as a reflection of our personality is by far nothing new in the fashion industry. Here’s a unique combination: traditional Bavarian outfits with colorful African print fabrics. The first Dirndl à l’Africaine that my sister Marie Darouiche designed was the starting point for our label NOH NEE, which is Swahili for “gift of god.” We base our ideas on the classic style of the dirndl of the 1950s, while our fabrics feature wax prints from Ghana and reflect…

Sweet On Reputation

November 14, 2019

Let’s talk about value creation from a slightly different perspective today. Reputation and how it plays into and impacts value. I’m going to dive deeper into some of the things we’re doing beyond financial performance, to drive shareholder – and more broadly – stakeholder value. So, why do I care about the reputation and brand perspective of Dell Technologies? I care because it matters to our Investors, our Customers and to our Team Members. We all know that reputation is…

We know the world is facing challenges today that are complicated, multilayered and can sometimes seem insurmountable.  However, in the face of this, I remain optimistic about our future. I believe in the transformative power of passionate people, who when equipped with technology can create real change and material outcomes for society. I witness this every day.

Transparency – The Critical Trust Enabler

Various consumer privacy laws (such as GDPR and the California Consumer Privacy Act) recognizes transparency as a core principle of data protection.  Simply stated, transparency is related to the fair processing principle and processing can only be fair if it takes place in a transparent manner. However, transparency is only relevant if it is meaningful.  In practice, this means that a business will need to clearly communicate to their users about their data collection practice, which is usually in the…

Building a More Representative Workforce

Earlier today, we proudly announced Dell Technologies’ ambitious social impact goals we’ll work to achieve by 2030.

By 2030, 25% of our U.S. workforce and 15% of our leaders will be black/African American and Hispanic/Latino…

The Road to 2030 Must Be Circular

America Recycles Day is this Friday, and each year we celebrate by hosting recycling drives on our campuses around the country. Each year I’m amazed at what we collect to repurpose: used computers, cell phones, eyeglasses, pet items, tennis shoes. Whether reused in current form or broken down into component parts, the materials get a second life. And it seems simple to us as consumers. We drop off a product and someone else handles the rest. We don’t always see…

Partnering to Find New Paths Forward in Sustainability

As we look at the next decade, today Dell Technologies is setting forth new sustainability goals. But even before today (in fact, more than three years ago), we started exploring different materials to enhance the Latitude brand’s premium design and performance leadership and help move our sustainability goals forward. Although we use reclaimed carbon fiber in Latitudes today, we wanted to keep pushing and find new ways to use even more reclaimed carbon fiber in our devices. We kicked off…

People are the Key to Digital Workforce Transformation

November 8, 2019

Your talent is the backbone of any digital workforce transformation. It’s only by diving into the needs of your own employees and by fulfilling their true expectations that you’ll be able to create a productive, engaged and loyal talent base. HR departments everywhere, and particularly those in the largest companies in the world, are accountable for a vast employee community.

Meaningful Partnerships are at the Center of Alienware’s Commitment to Community

November 7, 2019

Great partnerships are built upon shared beliefs and long-term commitment. In my own life, there’s no better example of a partnership than the 19 years I’ve shared with my wife Jennifer. We started our life journey together as high school sweethearts. Professionally, I’ve seen Dell and Alienware become a beacon of how partnerships should be built – based on trust and commitment with a “community first” approach. Within the realm of Esports and gaming, core values of “listening and learning” are central…

A Culture of Service Enriches All of Our Lives

Each year on November 11, Veteran’s Day is a reminder to honor and share our gratitude for the remarkable contributions made by those who have served or are serving our country in the armed services. When I think about those who have served, including so many employees across Dell Technologies, what stands out to me is the consistency of their commitment to serve others. I see it every day among our team members who are veterans or are family members…
