Michael Dell’s 5 Bullish Remarks About Dell’s Future And Vision

Besides launching a slew of new edge computing products at the Dell Technologies Summit virtual conference today, CEO Michael Dell dished out the vision for his company in the decades to come.

“Reflecting on our last 37 years—yeah, that’s been really fun and really exciting, but I think it’s all just a pregame show for what’s about to happen in our sector and the role technology plays in enhancing and enabling human potential,” said Michael Dell during his keynote at Dell Technologies Summit today.

Dell Technologies is in the midst of yet another major transformation with its focus on consumption-based IT and as-a-service, edge computing and emerging technologies along with Dell’s upcoming spin-off of virtualization and software superstar VMware next month.

“We have to be bold in our reinvention and our investments for the future,” said Dell. “As I’ve said, a business like ours really exists to solve those future problems. If we’re successful in doing that, we’ll be around for the next 37 years and beyond. If we don’t do that, we’ll be gone. That’s just the way it works. It’s not any more complicated than that.”
