OEMs – Preview the Future at Dell Technologies World

Dell Technologies World is an unmissable event for our OEM customers and partners. Read up on the sessions we have planned for you.

In my last blog, I wrote about how OEM Solutions enable human progress and how we work together, supported by partners like Intel, to change our world for the better. OEMs are visionaries and pioneers in embracing key technologies and adapting to emerging trends, which is precisely why you should sign up now to attend the premier event of the year — Dell Technologies World.

Join us at Dell Technologies World

Taking place on May 5th and 6th, this free, virtual event is accessible from anywhere. For our OEM customers and partners, this event will showcase emerging technologies, the latest product announcements, a multitude of topical breakout sessions, special guests, keynotes, guru sessions, interactive demos, lab sessions, and live Q&As with industry experts. Plus, we have some amazing entertainment in store!

Edge and OEM content

OEMs are at the forefront in using edge computing to drive digital transformation, which is helping to redefine many industries, opening up new business models and driving innovation. This transformation is generating a host of business opportunities with IDC predicting that the Edge computing market will reach $250.6 billion by 2024.

Recognizing the critical importance of the edge, there are a number of sessions you won’t want to miss. In particular, a dedicated OEM session, featuring John Green, our Global VP of OEM Sales Engineering and Alan Brumley, our Global OEM CTO on the topic of Designing Industry-grade Platforms for Performance and Remote Management at the Edge.

This session is one of many that we think you’ll find relevant to your solution development. In addition, we’ve also setup an OEM specific landing page that links to edge and OEM content as well as a curated list of product and technology topics, which will bring you the latest on servers, storage, AI and more.

APEX – the game-changer

I also encourage you to learn more about Project APEX, another transformative technology and business game changer. APEX unites all Dell Technologies as-a-service and cloud strategies, technology offerings, and go-to-market efforts to provide a consistent experience, wherever a workload runs, including on-premises, at the edge or in public clouds.

According to IDC, by 2024, more than 75 percent of infrastructure at the edge and over 50 percent of all data center infrastructure will be consumed as a service.¹ APEX will simplify digital transformation, making it easier for customers and partners to access Dell technology on-demand – across storage, servers, networking, hyperconverged, and broader solutions.

Moving forward together

Increasing edge computing and as-a-service demands will accelerate the need for the right compute, connectivity and storage as well as more flexible hardware and software platforms for our OEM customers and partners. Dell Technologies World will prepare you to harness the transformative power of today’s technology – and be ready for whatever comes next. Discover the latest products and solutions that enable real digital transformation. Don’t miss it!
