New ‘Experience Zones’ Offer a Fast Route to AI Expertise

New Dell AI Experiences Zones showcase the business benefits of artificial intelligence and provide ready access to the latest Dell AI solutions.

Organizations around the world now recognize the opportunity to put artificial intelligence to work to solve pressing business problems. In one sign of this growing AI momentum, a recent IDC report predicts that worldwide spending on AI systems will jump by 44 percent this year, to more than $35 billion.[1]

This push into the brave new world of AI isn’t confined to just certain industries. It’s across the board, according to IDC. As one of the firm’s research mangers notes in a news release, “Significant worldwide artificial intelligence systems spend can now be seen within every industry as AI initiatives continue to optimize operations, transform the customer experience, and create new products and services.”[1]

Clearly, when it comes to AI, organizations are ready to seize the day. And here is where things get harder. Now that people have bought into the vision, the challenge is to turn great ideas into great AI systems that deliver measureable business value. To get there, organizations need to gain experience with AI applications and the high-performance computing systems that drive them.

All are invited to the new Dell AI Experiences Zones! These hot spots for immersive AI experiences give Dell customers and partners a chance to gain a comprehensive understanding of AI technologies and advancements, as well as practical, hands-on experience with the design and deployment of AI solutions. Along the way, the AI Experience Zones show how organizations can leverage the Dell HPC and AI ecosystem to address today’s business challenges and opportunities across a wide range of industries.

The AI Experience Zones, launched in partnership with Intel©, place a strong emphasis on simplifying AI deployments. Through masterclass training, AI expert engagements and collaboration opportunities that are available on-site, users are guided through the necessary steps to kick-start AI initiatives within their organizations — including design, installation, maintenance and, most importantly, the delivery of tangible business outcomes.

The Customer Solution Center connection

The new AI Experience Zones are an extension of our Customer Solution Centers, which are found around the world. These centers give organizations a chance to gain firsthand experience with the latest and greatest Dell solutions and products, along with offerings from other Dell Technologies companies.

Via a customized Customer Solution Center engagement, your organization can work directly with our subject matter experts in our dedicated labs. Remote connectivity enables you to include global team members in the CSC experience, or to work with us entirely from your own location, as you plan and implement your digital transformation strategy — and work to bring your ideas to life.

Let’s get started

The new Dell AI Experience Zones are up and running in Singapore, Seoul, Sydney and Bangalore, and expanding. Organizations outside of the Asia Pacific and Japan region can get in the game by working with Dell Customer Solution Centers in their geographies to gain hands-on experience with AI technologies and solutions.
