We are helping customers become more efficient, effective and sustainable through the power of digital transformation.
Last year, we paved the way for the future — ours, our customers’ and our planet’s. By combining with EMC and VMware, we created a collective force for innovation that is trusted the world over. We are helping customers become more efficient, effective and sustainable through the power of digital transformation. It’s an exciting road ahead, and we plan to go big.
At Dell Technologies, we believe the world is changing faster than we know, opportunity abounds for those who are ready, and business as usual won’t cut it in the months and years ahead.
These same beliefs shape how we innovate responsible business practices, participate as good citizens in our communities, and deliver on our Legacy of Good Plan. Our commitment is steadfast: to put our technology and expertise to work where they can do the most good for people and the planet. I am proud to say we’re making terrific progress.
We continue to set the standard with our approach to the circular economy. Our closed-loop supply chain takes plastics from recycled computers and turns them into millions of new parts for 91 of our products globally. We are experimenting with this approach on other Dell and Dell EMC products, plus we are sourcing reclaimed carbon fiber for select laptops and using innovative, sustainable materials like ocean plastics in our packaging.
I am proud of our positive social impact as well. Our Youth Learning initiatives continue to provide technology access and education to underserved children around the world. In fact, a recent survey of our Youth Learning partners showed roughly half of the 320,000 youth participants surveyed had never touched a computer before taking part in our programs.
We continued our partnership with the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) to take on pediatric cancer and enable precision medicine. TGen’s Dell-designed high-performance computing solution yielded 50 percent faster genome analysis, nearly doubling the number of pediatric cancer patients they serve.
Dell EMC data scientists are also working with researchers in Brazil to define the Zika phenotype and the cause-effect relationship of the virus on the brain. It’s this kind of work that truly shows the power of technology to do good.
Technology is the answer to many of the world’s toughest challenges, and that inspires our global team every day to deliver on the promise of Dell Technologies.
