Dell Technologies (Who We Are)

Dell Technologies is instrumental in changing the digital landscape, powered by the aspiration to drive human development through technology. At Dell Technologies, our drive is to drive human progress, over greater access to better technology, for individuals with giant ideas all over the world.

It’s a journey that started more than a generation ago, in our founder Michael Dell’s University of Texas dorm room.

About the same period, Richard Egan and Roger Marino started EMC; first delivering compatible memory boards with higher reliability, then delivering data storage solutions scalable to enterprise level.
