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…

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.

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…

We are going virtual with events like Dell Technologies World and Executive Briefing Center experiences. We have our own business continuity plans in…

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…

Technology and innovation are constantly creating new opportunities and challenges that will impact how we work in 2020 and in the years to come. With that in mind, Dell Technologies recently invited an eclectic group of colleagues, partners, media, analysts and industry experts to help us explore the transformative trends reshaping the workplace.

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…

How are You Lifting Others?

February 3, 2020

Success means nothing unless you use that success to lift others up as well. There are many quotes that all equate to this same belief – a belief and mentality I’ve found is especially prevalent in the Black community. This commitment to lifting others has helped me build a career. I grew up in one of Los Angeles’ most impoverished neighborhoods where the outlook was bleak. This commitment to lifting others is also what drives the Dell Technologies family to…

January 21, 2020

Bett 2020: Building the Classrooms of the Future

Getting reacquainted with my digital office after the winter break served as a useful reminder of how integral technology has become to the way UK consumers and businesses interact, work and access information. According to a recent trends report in Forbes, 2020 is hyped to be the decade when schools also embrace technology. I have already witnessed how new and powerful technology is driving major changes in the way students and teachers teach, learn, and interact, and am incredibly excited…

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.

At Dell Technologies, people are a priority

December 17, 2019

That should be an obvious statement. It should. But not everyone recognizes how fundamental people are to a technology company. 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,…
