The 2019 Dell Technologies Forum is being held next Thursday, 27 June, at the Sandton Convention Centre. Under the overall theme of 'Real transformation’, the forum is a free event where you can experience Dell Technologies’ seven technology bands – Dell, Dell EMC, VMware, Pivotal, RSA, Virtustream and SecureWorks – all in one place.

Here’s why you should be there.

1. Learn how to make digital transformation real

Modern digital technologies like the IOT, AI, virtual reality and the cloud are unleashing an unprecedented wave of innovation.

Jason Jenkinson, country marketing manager, Dell Technologies South Africa, says these technologies can transform all societies, but only if their potential is made available and aligned with the requirements of our world. In other words, if businesses, state organisations and academic institutions can put them to practical use solving real problems affecting real people.

2. Hear lessons from SA’s top entrepreneur

Acclaimed business mogul and author Vusi Thembekwayo will share the lessons he’s learned as an entrepreneur.

3. Take in the keynote by Patricia Florissi

Patricia Florissi, one of the world’s foremost technologists and Dell Technologies’ president and global CTO for Sales, is the keynote speaker at Dell Technologies Forum Johannesburg. She will discuss the latest trends and how different markets are applying these to achieve their successes.

4. Choose from four hot-topic tracks

In the afternoon, four tracks will offer opportunities to delve into a variety of business and technology topics, including unified workspaces, transformation, storage, IOT, 5G, multi-cloud and security. These discussions will uncover how technology can help realise business outcomes such as more fulfilled employees, improved productivity and boosted business intelligence.

5. Meet Dell Technologies’ new Medium Business unit

The forum will also host a dedicated stand for Dell Technologies’ new Medium Business unit.

“This team of professionals focuses specifically on making enterprise-grade solutions available, affordable and relevant to the many small and medium businesses that grow our economy,” says Jenkinson.
