Saudi Vision 2030 is an ambitious plan to diversify the economy and get the Kingdom ‘future ready’. And what better way to spur on the success of Vision 2030 than with the recent announcement of the merge between Dell Technologies and EMC.

And finding the perfect partner for this landmark project was essential. Dell EMC is one of the few companies that can offer end-to-end services.

“We are at the dawn of the next industrial revolution. Our world is becoming more intelligent and more connected by the minute, and ultimately will become intertwined with a vast Internet of Things, paving the way for customers to do incredible things.” This is what Michael Dell, Chairman and CEO of Dell Technologies had to say about the merge between Dell and EMC, which occurred in September this year.

Talal AlBakr, Public and Oil Gas Sector Director at Dell EMC, is another one of the many people who are enthusiastic about the future of Saudi’s Vision 2030 and the role that DellEMC can play in it, especially since the government plans to optimize its spending and improve the citizens’ experience when dealing with public services. “Public Sector in Saudi Arabia will transform to stand at the leading edge of technological adoption to offer the  public community access to faster, more enhanced services that will improve on their quality of life .”

In order to achieve these KPI’s, the newly-combined Dell EMC company will help Saudi thrive in the digital age by resolving some of the most important issues, including improved IT services, cloud computing, converged infrastructure, financial services, education, security, and SME sectors. And together, the Saudi Vision 2030 and Dell EMC, will be able to set a new precedent and bring about new successes in the world of digital transformation.

According to Bader AlMadi, Service Providers Manager at Dell EMC, telecommunications companies will also have a vital role in the success of Vision 2030 by evolving to become Information and Communication technology (ICT) Providers. This will allow them to introduce reliable services to support both government and the private sector. Dell EMC can assist ICT provider by developing different Cloud flavours that can help deliver speed and agility for accelerated growth, to improve cost-efficiency and to tackle technological demands such as Big Data, IOT and new generation Applications.

Additionally Dell EMC is a core member of the Saudi society, and the leader in digital transformation, therefore we have a core responsibility as trusted advisors in achieving Vision 2030. Our proven track record of working with 98% of the world’s Fortune 500 companies, enables us to put our customers first and the freedom to invest in R&D for the future.

As the Kingdom prepares to diversify its economy, customers in the region will need to be a part of the digital economy to increase efficiency and productivity.

Dell EMC’s philosophy aligns perfectly with this, as key stake holders emphasized how the new company is built specifically to help customers thrive in the digital era.

Saudi Arabia’s preparation and readiness plan for 2030 is well underway and Dell EMC is committed to the journey with them. By investing in human capital and reources in KSA, Dell EMC can take advantage of the extensive Saudi national talent pool and expose them to a professional work environment that is revolutionizing their country and the IT landscape. Ultimately the partnership between these two organizations is one that is future-ready and motivated to make a difference by deploying digital transformation.
