The Game-changing Potential of Generative AI

Just like the revolutionary technologies of personal computers over 40 years ago and server virtualization over 20 years ago, we find ourselves witnessing another transformative era with boundless potential.

We’re still in the early stages of the generative AI revolution, but it’s real. Generative AI is an inflection point. It’s disruptive. It’s game-changing. More to learn. More to come.

I recently met with our investor community in our “Ask the Experts” webcast. As you can imagine, generative AI was the number one topic. Joined by our CTO John Roese and president of ISG Jeff Boudreau, we delved into the hot-button questions surrounding this exciting technology.

We view generative AI as a new category of computing in the technology stack with very distinct characteristics. It’s a new workload that is enabling a level of productivity we have never seen. As such, GenAI will not displace existing spend; rather it will grow the IT TAM over time. Moreover, the models GenAI creates will be some of the most valuable data ever created – data we’ll need to protect.

Dell is uniquely suited to help customers in their AI journeys. Navigating the technology options and how to integrate GenAI into their existing IT environment or deploy a new edge AI solution can be very complex. We have the experience and insights to help our customers design the most efficient solution based on their application and desired outcome for improving software development productivity, enhancing customer experience and/or automating their operations.

Our AI offers start with our modern data infrastructure portfolio – our latest generation of servers purpose-built for training or tuning GenAI models and AI inferencing, storage that scales to handle the massive amount of unstructured data needed for GenAI workloads and a data protection portfolio that can protect this data and the valuable models.

During my conversation with Jensen Huang, co-founder, president and CEO of NVIDIA, at Dell Technologies World, he shared that in the future, we’ll see AI factories at the edge, the data center and in the cloud. In other words, everywhere, resulting in a range of generative AI infrastructure solutions.

We’re just scratching the surface of what’s possible. With our expertise and broad portfolio of solutions and services, Dell is uniquely positioned to win in this new era and help shape the future for our customers. Catch the full replay here.
