DELL TECHNOLOGIES WORLD — Dell Technologies on Wednesday kicked off its second virtual conference, Dell Technologies World. Its first keynote, entitled “Moving Forward – Together,” saw CEO Michael Dell take to the stage.

Reflecting on the last year, he praised technology for saving society from economic meltdown.

“It’s been a year of humanity, and a year of humility, a year of desperation and inspiration,” he said. “A year of loss and learning about what we are, about what we can be in the future, and about what we can build together.”

He talked investments in technologies like edge computing, and the launch of Apex, Dell’s new as-a-service consumption model.

The CEO explained how the firm helped customers over the past year — not least some staggering figures around PCs shipped. Dell also revealed the company’s own plans for remote working post-COVID-19.

The slideshow above features the highlights of Dell’s speech and what it all might mean to partners.
