Dell EMC hosted a fo­rum in Riyadh with over 2,000 se­nior busi­ness and IT lead­ers in at­ten­dance at the event show­cas­ing the un­par­al­leled so­lu­tions port­fo­lio and united ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the newly com­bined com­pany to help en­ter­prises across the King­dom ac­cel­er­ate busi­ness and na­tional trans­for­ma­tion ini­tia­tives.

The day-long fo­rum fo­cused on de­liv­er­ing key in­sights and best prac­tices to help en­ter­prises in the King­dom max­i­mize per­for­mance de­mands to stay ahead in an ever com­pet­i­tive and chang­ing busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment.

At the event, Dell EMC re­vealed the find­ings of a study that out­lines height­ened busi­ness sup­port for changes in ICT strate­gies and in­vest­ments in light of the re­cent an­nounce­ment of Saudi Vi­sion 2030.

The study re­vealed that 75 per­cent of busi­ness lead­ers be­lieve ICT to play an es­sen­tial and com­ple­men­tary role to en­able na­tional as­pi­ra­tions for 2030.

The study fur­ther re­vealed that while busi­ness lead­ers do agree on the im­por­tance of ICT to achieve the broader na­tional vi­sion, 93 per­cent of busi­nesses be­lieve de­mands from Vi­sion 2030 will ne­ces­si­tate the need to re­think ICT strat­egy and in­vest­ments within their own or­ga­ni­za­tions.

More­over, 47 per­cent of busi­ness lead­ers re­ported the an­nounce­ment of man­dates set by the vi­sion.

The study also re­vealed a sig­nif­i­cant in­ter­est from busi­ness lead­ers to in­vest in core ICT re­lated skill sets to help the or­ga­ni­za­tion sus­tain com­pet­i­tive dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion.

The Dell EMC Fo­rum 2016 show­cased the com­pany’s com­plete set of ca­pa­bil­i­ties to help cus­tomers in Saudi Ara­bia thrive in rapidly evolv­ing dig­i­tal econ­omy.

Mo­hamed Talaat, VP for Saudi Ara­bia, Tur­key, Egypt and Libya at Dell EMC, said, "Vi­sion 2030 has ush­ered in a new era for busi­nesses across the King­dom as we col­lec­tively work to­gether to achieve a larger ob­jec­tive for sus­tain­able eco­nomic and cap­i­tal growth for the bet­ter­ment of our peo­ple and com­mu­nity."
