The need for organisations in the public sector to tap into IT digital transformation to achieve better efficiency and effectiveness has been reiterated at a customer technology update session held in Abuja recently.

The Integrated Marketing Manager, Dell EMC East, West and Central Africa, Annie Odo-Effiong, who gave the advice, noted that the public sector remained essential to the development of any nation and for the sector to experience growth and development, there is a need for technological adoption. She stated that we live in a device-driven world, where people expect IT services to be always on and always connected. To keep up with increasing competition and growing customer requirements, companies must find a way to do more with fewer resources.

According to the Infrastructure Solutions Marketing Manager, Shams Hassan, digitisation brings tremendous opportunities and benefits to businesses across all areas, whether, infrastructure, operations, applications and services.

He noted that Dell is unmatched in scale, influence and experience and is committed to bringing technology innovation to people and their businesses. The breadth and depth of the technologies Dell provides are truly best-in-class, every one of our brands is recognised as a leader, innovator or both.

“Our mission is to help create technologies that drive human progress and bring innovation to our customers so they can address the modern day challenges they’re facing” he said.

While delivering a presentation on converged infrastructure, Hassan stated that Dell has the industry’s broadest hyper-converged infrastructure portfolio designed to accelerate and simplify information technology (IT) deployment and management to meet specific customer goals. He commented further that Hyper-converged infrastructures, which combine full-featured storage, computing and networking functions into a single solution for virtualised environments has continued to gain momentum as organisations reap the benefits of faster time-to-value and more efficient operations from flexible, scalable, streamlined IT.

Noting that Dell has helped other countries within Europe, Africa and the Middle East use technology to transform their communities, he invited organisations, especially those in the public sector, to take advantage of Dell EMC’s innovative and forward-thinking solutions to simplify processes and boost efficiency and effectiveness of their IT.
“We are committed to bringing technology innovation to people everywhere so they can transform and thrive in the digital economy,” Hassan said.
