What will be some of the major tech sales drivers in 2021, and how is Dell positioned to win?

We see about six key themes. Multi-cloud is certainly a major theme that all organizations are dealing with right now. Another one is edge, there’s going to be tremendous growth—it’s already starting—at the edge, which is essentially the build-out of things and objects becoming intelligent and connected. Closely related to that is a continual build-out of our next-generation networks, specifically 5G and software-defined networks. All of those create an enormous amount of data, which creates a challenge in terms of how do you bring value from that data and manage all that data, which is enabled by artificial intelligence and machine learning. Then, of course, we have to secure it all where security is the last major tech driver.

Those are the six we see. We are certainly building our business around those. When you join us for VMworld and Dell Technologies World coming up in a few weeks, you’ll hear a lot more about each of those.
