The first anniversary of the ICT giant coincides with the celebration of the DELL EMC Forum in Madrid on December 12. There he will show the keys to make the digital future of the companies a reality.

The heads of Dell EMC have gathered the press to take stock of the last year and advance the news that can be seen during the next Dell EMC Forum  to be held in Madrid on December 12.  

During these days, the company is completing one year after the closing of the most important operation of the last decades within the ICT sector: The purchase of EMC by Dell. In a way, as confirmed Ricardo Labarga, general manager of Dell EMC Commercial Business in Spain , has been more a merger than an acquisition. Be that as it may, time seems to be giving the reason to Michael Dell, since the results are positive and revenues have grown double-digit during this last year, both globally and locally.  

Isabel Reis, CEO of Dell EMC Enterprise Business Spain , recently appointed to the post after leading the storage company in Portugal, highlighted the performance of its Flash product line, with almost three-digit growth. 

“The strategy of offering products from the PC to the cloud  is going well, with many synergies from both organizations,” said Reis. For his part, Labarga added that, contrary to what some pointed out a year ago, there have been no layoffs and have maintained all product lines “because there has been virtually overlapping.” He also explained that existing customers have rated the merger very positively because they can now count on a single interlocutor for different solutions. “We’ve even seen how Dell’s and EMC’s client portfolios have always complemented each other.”

This extensive portfolio of products, solutions and services will be shown during the Dell EMC Forum, a meeting that seeks to show organizations the way to  realize their digital future  , but also to do it from different points of view: Digital transformation, IT transformation, transformation of the workplace and transformation of security.  

It will do so not only through divided papers in these areas, but from the more than 40 stands that will be assembled together with Dell EMC partners: Intel, Microsoft, VMware, IPM, Nutanix, Omega Peripherals, Toshiba, Arrow, Esprinet, TechData , Valorista, Anada, Comparex, Eaton, Main Memory, SCC, Abast, Alhambra Eidos, Base 10, Orbit, Visiotic and V-Valley among others. 

For Labarga it is a unique opportunity for the 2,000 registered professionals so far can take advantage of the digitalization and boost business “at a point of clear rise in the Spanish market and its competitiveness.” Not in vain, the managers coincided in pointing out that the moments of political uncertainty are not taking their toll on the technology sector, including all the business related to public administrations.
