Private Power: Michael Dell Talks Growth, Investments And The Future


Technology Focus Areas

"What we see are really four major areas that are driving customer behavior," Dell said. "Transform, inform, connect and protect."

Transform, Dell said, is about making business environments more agile and flexible, either with cloud and software-defined networking or other new technologies. Inform is about finding ways to better analyze and use the massive amounts of data being generated. Connect is about extending Internet connectivity to new mobile devices and smart products. And protect is about securing all of those things from malware and hacker threats.
