Dell has announced the addition of new data centre solutions aimed at building future-ready enterprises and workforce.

From PCs and thin clients, to servers, storage and networking products, Dell’s solutions equip businesses with the agility and resilience to keep up with a dynamic marketplace and define the future of the connected workforce.

Local companies are seeking innovative technologies to remain competitive and boost their productivity rates. As Sri Lanka pushes towards building smart cities, companies are encouraged to utilise technologies that create economic opportunities for citizens. This is made possible with the adoption of technologies that can enable faster business production of products and services. In this light, it is imperative that businesses become future-ready to ensure the technologies they implement work together for current IT needs, and are flexible to adapt and scale for business growth. These have to be simplified and standardised solutions capable of adapting to change. Dell is supporting the Sri Lankan business environment with its suite of future-ready solutions.
