Sweet On Dell Technologies: Innovation in the Data Era

October 21, 2019

This is the fifth installment of an ongoing series “Sweet on Dell Technologies.” Co-authored with Jeff Clarke, Vice Chairman, Products and Operations, Dell Technologies. A few weeks ago, I was in New York for our Dell Technologies 2019 Business Update. It’s a given that we reviewed our company strategy and financials, but what we also wanted attendees to take away is the depth of our innovation. Innovation is nothing new for our business – it’s what our customers expect from…

Expanding the Life of IT on International E-Waste Day

October 14, 2019

The grueling summer heat in Austin is ending, and the fall breeze is finally starting to creep into the forecast. I love the fall because it has always had its share of traditions. Whether it is carving pumpkins – or going apple picking – or dressing up for Halloween. For me personally, the fall brings an abundance of events in which to celebrate and be thankful, birthdays, anniversaries and of course family gatherings during holidays. Our planet also embraces traditions….

Girls are a Force for our Future

October 11, 2019

In 2012, the United Nations established International Day of the Girl Child. The 2019 theme is “GirlForce: unscripted and unstoppable” and celebrates the achievements by, with and for girls. At Dell Technologies, we believe that girls are unstoppable and our social impact strategy includes a wide-reaching focus on improving lives and advancing opportunities for youth. Empowering girls (and women) is critical to business and workforce success—companies with top gender diversity are 21% more likely to have financial returns above industry peers.[1]…

Data Democratizes Tech For Any Age

October 8, 2019

A few months ago, I read a Wall Street Journal article which really stuck with me. It was focused on the workplace divide when it comes to adopting new technology. The main takeaways? Tech resistance is not based on age and workers need to see how new technology will benefit them for optimal adoption. Recent research conducted by Dell with IPSOS, an independent firm, provides a case in point: Despite the understanding from employees that passwords protect their business’ data, 62% of employees of all ages…

Designing the Dual-Screen Evolution of the PC

October 2, 2019

Dell’s Experience Innovation Group (EIG) believes the future of personal computing lies in the combination of hardware and software to deliver immersive, predictive experiences. Recognizing that form factor plays a significant role in how we interact with technology. We began exploring multi-screen devices around a decade ago and have been working with partners to explore this deeper the last few years. Modern, smart and responsive devices have the potential of unlocking new ways of working; encouraging collaboration and boosting productivity….

Driving our Next Wave of Progress through CX Innovation

October 1, 2019

In today’s “always-on”, digital world, business-to-consumer (B2C) experiences are fundamentally changing business-to-business (B2B) expectations. Delivering great products and services, while important, are now table stakes. So, what will be our ultimate differentiator? The experience we deliver to all of our customers. It’s been proven that leaders in customer service outperform the Dow by 93%, the Fortune 500 by 20% and the NASDAQ by 335%.[1] That should not be a surprise, given 74% of companies say they’ll pay more for a…

At the Dell Women Entrepreneur’s Network (DWEN) summit in Singapore this July, we experienced something quite exceptional…

This US city ranks the best in the world to be a woman entrepreneur

August 2, 2019

By Karen Gilchrist, CNBC, July 16th, 2019 The San Francisco Bay Area has overtaken New York City as the most accommodative place in the world to be a female entrepreneur, according to a new study. Efforts to eliminate the so-called bro culture, increased access to funding for women and ongoing tech developments were some of the ways in which the Bay Area leapfrogged its East Coast rival to rank top of the 2019 Women Entrepreneur Cities (WE Cities) Index. Indeed,…

The Cities Where Women Entrepreneurs Are Flourishing

Route Fifty, Emma Coleman, July 25, 2019 Small businesses have been called the “engine of cities,” contributing to economic growth, boosting employment opportunities, and sparking innovation. There are 30.2 million small businesses in the U.S., and they employ a whopping 47.5% of the private workforce.  More than 12 million of those companies in the U.S. are owned by women—and that number has risen dramatically in the past decade. But while the number of female entrepreneurs has increased, many cities could be doing more to create a better culture for women in business, according to a new…

Sweet on Dell Technologies: Conglomerate? Not Really. Here’s Why.

DWEN Returns to APJ: 10 Years of Celebrating Women Entrepreneurship

Ten years ago the first DWEN (Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network) Summit was hosted in Shanghai. Two main factors shaped the idea of DWEN – the fact that entrepreneurs are the force that historically leads the economy out of financial crisis, and that women business owners still struggled to access the capital, networks and resources they need to take their businesses to the next level. Fast forward to today, as delegates gathered from around the world for DWEN 2019 in Singapore,…

Celebrating 10 Years of DWEN!

July 22, 2019

I still remember our very first DWEN (Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network) Summit. 50 inspiring women from 11 countries joined us on June 19, 2010, in Shanghai, China. The goal? To collectively discuss how we could remove unique barriers for women entrepreneurs to succeed…namely, access to capital, technology, networks and advocacy.

Our Great Opportunity to Transform Lives

July 9, 2019

How do we make the world a better place? Just the enormity of that statement may deter any one person from acting because the task, on the surface, seems so daunting. We’re battling poverty, hunger, environmental issues and the list goes on. But as with any huge project, it is important to start small. To take a step back and understand the root of what you’re trying to accomplish, how you are going to tackle it, and what tools and…

Tackling the Fastest Growing Domestic Waste Stream Takes Circular Thinking

With the summer time in full swing, most of us are thinking about vacation, beaches, and finding ways to escape on our next adventure. My idea of an adventure is embedding myself in nature by going on a nice long bike ride. It’s important to spend time with nature to remind us of its beauty, fragility and our responsibility to protect it. Advancing sustainability is a key focus for our 2030 vision. We have a responsibility to protect and enrich…

We Must Build A Future Workforce For ALL

The latest Future of Jobs Report by the World Economic Forum suggests that the rapid evolution of machines and algorithms in the workplace could create 133 million new roles between now and 2022. That’s a heck of a lot of jobs to fill. This is a great problem to have, but a problem none the less if we are not in a position to take advantage of the opportunity. According to the quarterly Gartner Emerging Risks Survey, talent shortage rated as one…

Sweet on Dell Technologies: 1Q FY20 Financial Results

Dell Wyse ThinOS – PCoIP Connections to Major Cloud Providers

June 5, 2019

We recently received numerous requests and questions about using ThinOS to access cloud resources directly from the terminal environment using the Teradici Cloud Access Software (CAS) solution. For those not familiar with PC-over-IP (PCoIP), it delivers remote access to computers and virtual machines using a secure, high-definition and highly responsive connection protocol.  Given the level of interest we’ve received, I thought it would be a good idea to share what’s possible with this technology from a ThinOS based device along…
