Held at the Shangri-La Hotel in Colombo, Dell Technologies Asia Emerging Markets and South Asia Consumer Business Vice President Anothai Wettayakorn and Dell Technologies Sri Lanka Country Manager Chrishan Fernando, unveiled the new solutions and addressed attendees comprised of Dell Technologies’ key partners and customers. The event was powered by Dell Technologies key partners, Pinnacle Distribution Lanka Ltd. and Redington SL Ltd.

“For many organisations, the fast-changing technology landscape is resulting in an enormous amount of IT complexity. Business leaders must overcome this challenge to deliver exceptional customer experiences with their products and services. With Dell Technologies’ solutions, we’re empowering businesses on their digital transformation journey to preserve essential information while becoming more adaptive, competitive and innovative,” said Chrishan Fernando. 

“Dell Technologies Symposium brings together the latest solutions from the edge to the core to the cloud, including data centre solutions built to enhance operational and business efficiencies, as well as workforce solutions to help customers save both cost and time.” 

He further added: “Accessibility to data is at the core of business transformation and modern enterprises are increasingly relying on cloud to help accelerate the delivery of innovative services powered by data to the business, ultimately delivering new experiences to their customers. The Dell Technologies Cloud portfolio consists of the new Dell Technologies Cloud Platforms and the new Data Centre-as-a-Service offerings. These offerings enable a flexible range of IT and management options with tight integration and a single vendor experience for purchasing, deployment, services and financing.”

According to a Gartner survey, 67% 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 modernise their data centres with infrastructure designed to simplify their data landscape, optimise workloads at any scale and secure an organisation’s most valuable asset – data. 

The Dell Technologies Digital Transformation Index also highlights that only 5% 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 evident by the 78% of business leaders who admit digital transformation should be more widespread throughout their organisations and more than half of businesses believe they will struggle to meet changing customer demands within five years.   

Also introducing the Unified Workspace to help IT transform end-user experience, Dell Technologies’ visionary approach to end-user computing helps make workforce transformation a reality for customers by providing workers with a fuss-free, ready-to-work experience, while enabling IT teams with automated, open and intelligent solutions for unified management. 

Using data-driven insights that assess how the worker is using their PC – from the battery consumption and storage utilisation 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 personalised 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.”
