Dell is Accelerating Innovation at SAPPHIRE NOW 2014


With the anticipation of summer upon us, the coming of June also means that it's time for the SAPPHIRE NOW 2014 Conference in Orlando, Florida and Dell is raring to go. This year IT decision makers, technical experts and business managers from all types of organizations will visit Orlando from June 3-5 to hear more about the latest and greatest technological innovations that convert data into actionable business results, driving profitability and growth.

As a longtime SAP partner committed to delivering value to our customers, Dell is excited to participate in the festivities. We look forward to conversing with industry experts and customers about how to innovate and thrive in our data-filled world. We will also be demonstrating a number of Dell’s end-to-end solutions that will help customers make the most of their SAP environments. And we will be unveiling our newest solutions and services for SAP HANA to help customers make strategic business decisions and get a better handle on rising data demands – so be sure to keep a look out for more information next week.
