Former US President Bill Clinton will speak at Dell’s second annual customer and partner event called Dell World 2012. The event brings together IT stakeholders from across the world.
Those in attendance will learn how technology can help make a greater global impact by enabling success in business and in life, Dell reported.
The technology company’s founder and chairman Michael Dell will also speak at the event.
“Today, technology often sets the foundation for growth in business, achievements in life and positive change in the world. Dell World 2012 is all about giving customers the power to do more by helping them get the most from their technology,” Dell said.
Dell World 2012 will address challenges in making the right technology choices and highlight solutions available for a wide range of industries.
The event will take place on December 11 to13, 2012 in Austin, Texas. It aims to bring together key IT decision makers from small businesses to Fortune 100 companies to learn and discuss how enablement and empowerment of technology drive business outcomes.
“In today’s challenging economic environment, our customers are looking for ways to deliver real business value and results faster, and the organizations that can effectively use emerging technologies to do so will rise to the top,” said Steve Felice, Dell president and chief commercial officer.
“Today’s IT professionals have an opportunity to be the force of change, and at Dell World 2012, we’re excited to help those leaders identify areas of opportunity,” he went on.
Dell is the world’s number three computer-maker. The company, whose products are used throughout Africa, has diversified beyond by buying software, storage and service companies which have contributed to its higher profit margin.
As of May 4, the company posted a sharp decline in profits for the first quarter – reporting a US$635 million income on US$14.4 billion in revenue. This is compared with a US$945 million income on US$15 billion in revenue in the same period last year.
