According to a Gartner survey, 67 percent of business leaders have stated that their company will lose its competitive edge if it does not digitally transform by 2020. As the foundation for successful digital transformation, customers need to be able to modernize their data centers with infrastructure designed to simplify their data landscape, optimize workloads at any scale and secure an organization’s most valuable asset — data. The Dell Technologies Digital Transformation Index also highlights that only 5 percent of businesses around the globe have been defined as Digital leaders. The study indicates that digital transformation programs for most businesses are still in its infancy stages. This is evidenced by the 78 percent of business leaders who admit digital transformation should be more widespread throughout their organizations and more than half of businesses believe they will struggle to meet changing customer demands within five years.

Using data-driven insights that assess how the worker is using their PC – from the battery consumption and storage utilization to mobility requirements and most frequently used applications – Dell Technologies can help customers select the right PC and applications for each employee, shipping the devices preconfigured directly from the Dell factory to the end users. This data-driven, low-touch experience helps save IT time and money, allowing them to focus their resources on other strategic projects while enabling workers with personalized devices and access to data and applications so they are immediately productive when they first boot up.

Speaking at the event, Wettayakorn commented: “Dell Technologies has always been focused on innovation to simplify our IT for customers. We believe that the new solutions introduced will provide the right support that our customers are looking for in their digital transformation journey, especially around saving time and resources to focus on making strategic decisions that matter.”
