Following the opening ceremony, experts engaged partners and customers with technical briefings, architectural design sessions and Proof of Concepts. These sessions aimed to offer partners and customers a clear path of integration with Dell Technologies’ solutions and mission-critical application projects which span across connected cities use cases, Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, pivotal cloud foundry, multi cloud and software-defined data centres, advanced threat detection and automated response security solutions.
