Dell opens Dubai Solution Centre

Dell today announced the opening of its Dubai Solution Centre to help customers in the EMEA Emerging region explore, test and deploy end-to-end solutions that help drive business outcomes and create competitive advantage. The 330 square meter facility consists of a data centre, customer meeting rooms and labs. The new Centre supports the strategic expansion of Dell’s solutions and services capabilities, and highlights a wide range of cloud computing, software, data centre and end-user computing solutions.

The new facilities have allowed Dell to consolidate much of its current Middle East operations and create an innovation hub for the company’s expanding team, as well as partners and customers. Dell has acquired several companies as part of its solutions strategy including Everdream, Force10, KACE, Ocarina, Scalent, SonicWALL, WYSE and Zing.

“Dell is growing its business in the Middle East at a phenomenal rate, and the Dubai Solutions Centre is a first of its kind in the region. The Dubai Solutions Centre will provide a one-stop resource for customers who want to develop and test next-generation solutions that meet their unique business needs,” said Dave Brooke, General Manager, Dell Middle East.

Through a network of global Solution Centres, Dell is helping customers architect, validate and build solutions from the data centre to the edge of the network. Dell Solution Centre’s offer on-site resources and experts who can assist customers with proof of concept testing prior to deployments, in order to ensure that the solutions work in the customer’s environment. To date, more than 15,000 customer engagements have been completed at Dell Solution Centres around the world.

Dell opened the Silicon Valley Executive Briefing and Solution Centre in October 2012.  Additional Dell Solution Centre’s are located in New York City, Limerick, Ireland; Shanghai, China; Austin, Texas; Washington, DC (Herndon, VA); Singapore; Chicago, Illinois (Buffalo Grove); Tokyo, Japan; Frankfurt, Germany; Paris, France; Sydney, Australia; and satellite sites in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Bracknell, United Kingdom.
