Michael Dell, Founder and CEO of Dell Technologies, stressed that “technology must reflect our humanity and values” rather than our human frailty as he took the stage at Dell Technologies World 2019.

Addressing over 15,000 attendees in Las Vegas, Dell appealed to the audience to share his vision of “tech optimism” – the idea that technology can improve the lives of people and make the world a better place if utilised correctly.

"Humankind has made astonishing progress in the last few decades ... nothing short of miraculous, but it was all a pre-game show; the next three decades will hold more progress than ever before," Dell said.



"A new age of miracles is literally around the corner," he added. "We're technologists and we share an awesome responsibility – it's up to us to ensure that technology reflects our humanity and our values.”

Better together: The future of Dell

With his business celebrating its 35th birthday in a few days, Dell was also bullish about the company’s future in the technology market, noting how the firm has invested more than US$20bn in research and development (R&D) over the past 5 years.

“When we formed Dell Technologies we believed bringing together the leader in servers, storage, virtualisation and data protection would be great for customers,” he said. “We created the essential infrastructure company and you all have responded. 

“We’re growing, we’re investing in our business… and were integrating and innovating across our family of business like never before.”

During the keynote speech, Dell also unveiled the Dell Technologies Cloud platform, tighter integration with VMware, as well as a deeper industry partnership with Microsoft.
