Want to enable mobility in your organization without compromising security?

Need a future-proof scale-out firewall architecture?

Curious about how Dell uses Dell to run its business?

These and other topics that will be discussed at Dell World 2014 have now been announced in the breakout session agenda [PDF].

With sessions and labs led by key engineers, architects and developers from design centers around the world, attendees will get practical knowledge to help manage their enterprise IT environment.

“What’s important to us is what are the technologies that are going to impact our business. We build buildings and data centers to last 10, 20, 30 years. And what you see with technology is that it’s changing every two years,” noted one attendee of Dell World 2013. “So, that’s important to me to understand where technology is going.”

And to help you with that, we’ve got more than 50 immersive breakout sessions planned covering everything from cloud computing, security to mobility, and the future of the data center.

But, there’s still room for more! We’re looking for dynamic presenters who can inspire attendees with novel and unexpected ideas—and get them thinking about what’s possible. We’d love to hear your presentation idea.

At Dell World, our goal is to provide a highly social environment where business leaders, technologists, developers and designers can share ideas, stories and best practices that will guide and inspire innovative thinking.

And, as Tech Cocktail recently noted, we’ll also be giving several startup companies the opportunity to pitch their business at Dell World in a final Pitch Slam as part of our Tech Innovation Day Series. The full 2014 judging panel hasn’t been announced yet, but last year’s included Michael Dell, Elizabeth Gore and Daymond John!
