Creating a Digital World – Role of Emerging Technologies

Manish Gupta

Sr. Director & GM - DCCS,
Dell Technologies

Today, a business’s potential will only be limited by the imaginations of its digital leaders. Integral to becoming a digital organization are emerging technologies, and most leading organizations already recognize their significance. Without these technologies, most of the leading organizations believe that they will not be able to transform. And if they don’t transform, a competitor will disrupt their business, and maybe their entire industry. Emerging technologies are redefining how organizations build and deploy software, modernize and simplify their infrastructure, inspire their workforce, and secure their most critical assets. These technologies will enable large-scale shifts in our economy and transform entire industries. Those who understand their potential and apply them correctly will gain a competitive advantage and thrive.
