Sweet on Dell Technologies: How Much Time Will You Spend Today Thinking About Tomorrow?

This is the first installment of an ongoing series “Sweet on Dell Technologies”.

At Dell Technologies, we think a lot about what’s coming next. The next IT trend that’s going to transform business and the way we do things. The next big thing that’s going to help us use data to make smarter decisions faster. The next smart machine that works in partnership with humans to solve problems. We’re always thinking about how we help our customers become digital organizations and how harnessing the transformative innovation, partnerships, and essential technology Dell Technologies provides will move them and their ideas forward. This is why we exist.

Since our earliest days, Dell’s commitment to customers has driven us to innovate—propelling us from a PC company to today’s leader in differentiated capabilities across our entire portfolio – from the edge to the data center core to the cloud. We’re creating value for customers by working across our family of businesses to innovate, invest in new capabilities and deliver unique solutions they can’t get from any other technology partner.

And speaking of Michael’s thoughts on who we are as a company, at one of our recent meetings, Michael said it best – the value of Dell Technologies is in the seams. You’ll find us living that out in the way we build Dell Technologies solutions that integrate superior software, hardware, services from across our portfolio, the way we leverage our world-class supply chain to advance sustainability through responsible sourcing, minimizing our footprint, and innovating with the lifecycle of resources. You’ll also see it in how we activate our sales and support teams in 170 countries to meet our customers right where they are, across the globe.

Looking at our fiscal year 2019 results—where we saw double-digit revenue growth across all three business units – our Client Solutions Group Business, our Infrastructure Solutions Group Business and VMware; as well as profitable share gains across our portfolio, and leading positions across the industry—we’re driving sustainable growth.

Check out this infographic that shows where we’ve come from and where we’re headed. Transforming our own company to give our customers the essential technology they need to realize their digital transformations.

I hope you’ll join me at Dell Technologies World or tune in virtually at Dell Technologies World Live to learn more, and watch our keynotes and programming from the show floor. From the edge to the core to the cloud, what’s coming next will show you how REAL transformation will unlock the digital future. Let’s think about tomorrow together.
