Vinita writes about innovation and scale using technology, and Dell is no stranger to either. She said, “As India looks towards becoming a $5 trillion economy, machine learning, artificial intelligence, multi-cloud environments, security and other allied digital technologies are taking centre stage in growth conversations. Companies are aware these technologies are the biggest revenue drivers for them, and so, they are heavily investing in skill pools to harness this next phase of growth.” Vinita further highlighted that India’s digital evaluators, adopters and leaders come in at 40, 30 and 11 percent respectively, higher than the global averages of 33, 23 and 5 percent. “India's companies, therefore, have a unique opportunity. They can become digital navigators who drive the next level of business goals and strategy instead of delivering only technology and power to successfully compete in the global arena.” “Today, innovating at scale isn’t just key to succeeding, but also surviving. Our focus on innovation is apparent from the fact that we invest more than our peers to do this, and the efficacy of this focus is clearly visible and encouraging.”
