Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra, A Flexible Modular Zero-Footprint PC!

Dell just unveiled the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra with the world’s most flexible, zero-footprint desktop design!

We will take a look at what that means, and why the new Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra may be just the modern office needs!

 

The Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra

The Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra is called a zero-footprint desktop design, because it integrates the PC with the monitor. This is what the industry calls an All-In-One (AIO) design.

While AIO designs save space and reduce clutter, they are often notoriously difficult, if not impossible, to upgrade over time.

The Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra, however, was designed from the ground-up to be modular, offering flexibility in both serviceability and upgradability.

  • Independent upgrade of the PC and the display – you can swap out, upgrade or service any part at any time
  • The PC is integrated into the monitor stand, with physical security options to protect against tampering
  • Can be configured for different use cases or work styles with options of a height-adjustable stand, fixed stand, VESA mount, Dell MSA20 single monitor arm or the Dell MDA20 dual monitor arm.
  • The PC performance can be scaled to meet the users’ needs – up to Intel Core vPro i7 processors, 64 GB of RAM, 1 TB NVMe SSD and 2 TB HDD

Even though it already comes with a display, the Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra can support up to two other monitors – from 19- to 27-inches – for greater productivity.

And if you opt for the new Dell USB-C monitors, you can use a single cable to transmit power, data, video and audio!

 

Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra Price + Availability

The Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra will be available for purchase by end of September 2019, with pricing to be announced later.

Dell MentorConnect Leads The Way In Diversity + Inclusion!

Dell Technologies just launched MentorConnect – a mentorship programme that promotes diversity and inclusion.

Here is our primer on the Dell MentorConnect programme, and how it will change the workplace dynamics in Malaysia!

 

What Is MentorConnect?

MentorConnect is a unique cross-company mentorship programme that promotes diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

It now has 17 mentors from 11 different companies, and has since helped over 220 mentees – both men and women – in a variety of roles, from finance, sales and operations to engineering, marketing and IT.

Present at the launch, Deputy Minister of Women, Family and Community Development, YB Hannah Yeoh said, “I commend Dell Technologies and its partners for launching the MentorConnect programme – this inter-company collaboration will help those participating to think out of the box, get new ideas and be inspired by how others are doing things.”

“Furthermore, I encourage the private sector and companies like Dell Technologies to explore ideas beyond the professional and personal development of the workforce, and consider the idea of a family-focused workplace.”

“Initiatives such as setting up a childcare centre in the workplace creates an enabling environment – both for mothers and fathers – for employees to thrive in the workplace. Childcare centres in the workplace not only retains women in the workforce but also assures the parents that their children are in a safe place.”

 

How MentorConnect Began

Dell MentorConnect began three years ago as a local initiative by the Penang chapter of the Women In Action Employee Resource Group.

The Women In Action ERG is a community of men and women across the world that aims to position Dell Technologies as an employer of choice for all, by creating a supportive and inclusive environment.

MentorConnect has since grown into a cross-company programme in both the Penang and Cyberjaya campuses of Dell Technologies.

 

MentorConnect Partner Companies

In addition to Dell Technologies, MentorConnect has now grown to include :

[adrotate group=”2″]
  • IHD Markit,
  • Keysight Technologies,
  • National Instruments,
  • UST-Global,
  • Mattel,
  • Boston Scientific,
  • Motorola Solutions,

  • and PETRONAS.

The Human-Machine Partnership by Erik Brynjolfsson + Rana el Kaliouby

At the Dell Technologies World 2019, we were lucky enough to snag a seat at the talk by MIT Professor Erik Brynjolfsson; and MIT alumni and Affectiva CEO, Rana el Kaliouby, on human-machine partnership.

We managed to record the incredibly insightful session for everyone who could not make it for this exclusive guru session. This is a video you must not miss!

 

The DTW 2019 Guru Sessions

One of the best reasons to attend Dell Technologies World 2019 are the guru sessions. If you are lucky enough to reserve a seat, you will have the opportunity to listen to some of the world’s most brilliant thinkers and doers.

 

The Human-Machine Partnership

The talk on human-machine partnership by Professor Brynjolfsson and Ms. Rana was the first of several guru sessions at Dell Technologies World 2019.

Entitled “How Emerging Technologies & Human Machine Partnerships Will Transform the Economy“, it focused on how technology changed human society, and what the burgeoning efforts in artificial intelligence will mean for humanity.

Here are the key points from their guru session on the human-machine partnership :

Erik Brynjolfsson (00:05 to 22:05) on the Human-Machine Partnership

  • You cannot replace old technologies with new technologies, without rethinking the organisation or institution.
  • We are now undergoing a triple revolution
    – a rebalancing of mind and machine through Big Data and Artificial Intelligence
    – a shift from products to (digital) platforms
    – a shift from the core to crowd-based decision making
  • Shifting to data-driven decision-making based on Big Data results in higher productivity and greater profitability.
  • Since 2015, computers can now recognise objects better than humans, thanks to rapid advances in machine learning.
  • Even machine-based speech recognition has become as accurate as humans from 2017 onwards.
  • While new AI capabilities are opening up new possibilities in many fields, they are also drastically reducing or eliminating the need for humans.
  • Unlike platforms of the past, the new digital networks leverage “two-sided networks“. In many cases, one network is used to subsidise the other network, or make it free-to-use.
  • Shifting to crowd-based decision-making introduces diversity in the ways of thinking, gaining new perspectives and breakthroughs in problem-solving.
  • Digital innovations have greatly expanded the economy, but it doesn’t mean that everyone will benefit. In fact, there has been a great decoupling between the productivity and median income of the American worker in the past few decades.

Rana el Kaliouby (22:08 to 45:05) on the Human-Machine Partnership

  • Human communication is mostly conveyed indirectly – 93% is non-verbal. Half of that are facial expression and gestures, the other half is vocal intonation.
  • Affectiva has the world’s largest emotion repository, with 5 billion frames of 8 million faces from 87 countries.
  • Facial expressions are largely universal, but there is a need diversity of their data to avoid bias in their models. For example, there are gender differences that vary by culture.
  • They use computer vision, machine learning and deep learning to create an Emotional AI model that learns from all those facial expressions to accurately determine a person’s emotions.
  • Emotional artificial intelligence has many real-world or potential uses
    – detecting dangerous driving, allowing for proactive measures to be taken
    – personalising the ride in a future robot-taxi or autonomous car
    – the creation of more engaging and effective social robots in retail and hospitality industries
    – help autistic children understand how facial expressions correspond to emotions, and learn social cues.

 

Erik Brynjolfsson + Rana el Kaliouby

Professor Erik Brynjolfsson holds many hats. He is currently :

  • Professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management,
  • Director of the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy,
  • Director of the MIT Center for Digital Business, and
  • Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research

Rana el Kaliouby was formerly a computer scientist at MIT, helping to form their Autism & Communication Technology Initiative. She currently serves as CEO of Affectiva, a spin-off from MIT’s Media Lab that focuses on emotion recognition technology.

Here Are The 2019 Virtustream Multicloud Survey Results!

The 2019 Virtustream Multicloud Survey results was just announced with some interesting insights into the multicloud strategies being employed globally. Here is our quick primer on what the study revealed!

 

The 2019 Virtustream Multicloud Survey

Virtustream, a Dell Technologies company, commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct their latest global survey of the multicloud strategy of more than 700 companies globally.

Virtustream commissioned the survey to study the current state of enterprise IT strategies for cloud-based workloads.

 

The 2019 Virtustream Multicloud Survey Summarised

The survey report, titled Multicloud Drive Mission-Critical Benefits, found that :

  • almost all (97%) of those companies used multicloud strategies in their mission-critical applications.
  • two thirds use multiple vendors for mission-critical workloads
  • multicloud deployments will increase over the next few years, with businesses expanding their multicloud budgets for staffing, investments and training
  • nearly 90% of companies surveyed will maintain or increase their budget to boost their multicloud deployments
  • nearly 75% of companies surveyed are using multiple cloud providers for mission-critical applications
  • nearly 61% of companies surveyed were concerned about security and management of their multicloud strategies.

 

Benefits Of Multicloud Strategies For Mission-Critical Applications

A majority of business organizations shared that multicloud strategies was used in mission-critical cases that involved customers’ financial data or sales applications.

In fact, the survey found that nearly 75% of business organisations are using about 2-3 cloud providers for business-critical applications.

Among the main benefits of using multicloud strategies were quick and efficient response to business changes and challenges.

An increased performance and savings in operational costs were also counted as additional benefits.

 

Security + Management Concerns In The 2019 Virtustream Multicloud Survey

Management and deployment of multicloud strategies are complex, which is why many business organisations face issues with its implementation.

Although nearly 61% respondents admit that multicloud strategies complements their own business objectives, there were still concerns of security and management.

Thus, many companies are planning to increase qualified and skilled staff to support their multicloud strategies, and work with cloud vendors with proper expertise and experience.

The 2019 Microsoft – Dell Partnership : All You Need To Know!

One of the biggest stories from Dell Technologies World 2019 was the new Microsoft – Dell partnership. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella himself joined Michael Dell to talk about it!

 

The 2019 Microsoft – Dell Partnership

Dell Technologies and Microsoft have been partners for a long time now, but at Dell Technologies World 2019, they announced that they were expanding their partnership in a number of digital transformation solutions.

Let’s take a look at what the components of the 2019 Microsoft – Dell partnership…

 

Azure VMware Solutions – VMware On Azure!

For the first time ever, Microsoft will offer VMware on Azure! The new Azure VMware Solutions are built on VMware Cloud Foundation, and deployed in Azure.

This would allow companies to capitalise on VMware’s trusted cloud infrastructure and the mission-critical performance of Microsoft Azure.

Hybrid Cloud Connectivity

With Azure VMware Solutions, customers will be able to seamlessly migrate, extend and run existing VMware workloads from on-premises environments to Microsoft Azure without the need to re-architect applications or retool operations.

They will also be able to build, run, manage, and secure new and existing applications across VMware environments and Microsoft Azure, while extending a single model for operations based on established tools, skills and processes as part of a hybrid cloud strategy.

Tapping Into Azure Capabilities

Azure VMware Solutions enable organisations to tap into Azure’s scale, security and fast provisioning cycles to innovate and modernise applications while also improving performance.

By integrating with native Azure services, customers can easily infuse advanced capabilities like AI, Machine Learning, and IoT into their applications enabling new, intelligent experiences.

Metal-as-a-Service

Azure VMware Solutions are first-party services from Microsoft developed in collaboration with VMware Cloud Verified partners CloudSimple and Virtustream (a Dell Technologies company).

Both CloudSimple and Virtustream run the latest VMware software-defined data center technology.

This ensures that customers enjoy the same benefits of a consistent infrastructure and consistent operations in the cloud as they achieve in their own physical data center, while allowing customers to also access the capabilities of Microsoft Azure.

 

New Microsoft – Dell Workspace Solutions

The 2019 Microsoft – Dell partnership also sees a collaboration in digital workspace solutions between Microsoft and both Dell Technologies and VMware.

Microsoft 365 + VMware Workspace ONE

Customers who use both Microsoft 365 and VMware Workspace ONE will now be able to leverage both solutions to maximise their investments.

Specifically, they will be able to use Workspace ONE to manage and secure Office 365 across devices through cloud-based integration with Microsoft Intune and Azure Active Directory.

Dell Provisioning Services Integration

Through the new Dell Technologies Unified Workspace, customers can leverage the integration of Microsoft Windows Autopilot and Dell Device Provisioning and Deployment Services, like Dell ProDeploy – all enabled by the integration of Microsoft 365, Workspace ONE, and Dell Provisioning Services.

Windows Virtual Desktop

Microsoft also announced Windows Virtual Desktop, the only service that delivers a multi-session Windows 10 experience, optimisations for Office 365 ProPlus, and support for Windows Server Remote Desktop Services (RDS) desktops and apps.

As a part of this agreement, VMware will extend the capabilities of Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop to enable customers to further accelerate their cloud initiatives, leveraging VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure.

Initial capabilities are expected to be available as a tech preview by the end of calendar year 2019.

VMware + Azure Integration

Microsoft and VMware are also exploring initiatives to drive further integration between VMware infrastructure and Azure such as integration of VMware NSX with Azure Networking and integration of specific Azure services with VMware management solutions.

They will also be exploring bringing specific Azure services to the VMware on-premises customers. Through this collaboration, the companies aim to give customers a more seamless experience across VMware and Azure environments.

Boasting the latest quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core processors, it will use the same GORE thermal insulation that was first introduced in the 2018 Dell XPS 13. It uses the same silica aerogel used on the Mars Rover and Stardust Probe.

New to the 2019 model is its support for Dolby Vision. The 2019 Dell XPS 13 is the first Dell laptop to deliver industry-leading HDR experience through Dolby Vision.

2019 Dell XPS 13 (9380) Price + Availability

The 2019 Dell XPS 13 offers an even brighter arctic white woven glass fibre interior, with a new frost anodised exterior colour option. But if you still want the old colour options, they are still available – rose gold and white, or black and silver.

The 2019 Dell XPS 13 (9380) will be available for sale in February 2019, with prices starting at US$899.99 in the US, and RM 5,909 here in Malaysia.

In this article, we will share with you the official Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 tech briefing, as well as its key features, price and availability.

The Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 Laptop

Sixth Sense

As the smallest commercial 14-inch 2-in-1 laptop in the industry, the new Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 boasts a sixth sense – the ability to be ready to go before you even touch it!

It is the first PC to use a proximity sensor enabled by Intel Context Sensing Technology.. Using ExpressSign-in which detects your presence, the proximity sensor wakes the system, and immediately scans for your facial recognition to log in with Windows Hello.

Even when you step away for a break, the Latitude 7400 2-in-1 will recognise that you have left and automatically lock itself to preserve battery life and maintain security.

Leading-Edge Engineering

The Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 comes with a variable-torque hinge for easy opening with one finger. It also boasts a new thermal solution with an aerogel-infused GORE material, for better cooling performance.

It boasts a Titan Gray machined aluminium finish, and a magnesium alloy bottom cover that is coated with soft-touch paint. It will also be the first Latitude laptop to use Dell’s ocean-bound plastics packaging.

24-Hour Battery Life

Despite its small footprint, the Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 is expected to deliver the longest battery life in its class based on preliminary testing. Dell is a battery life of up to 24 hours on a single charge.

If that’s not enough, it supports ExpressCharge, which will get its battery charged back up to 80% in just an hour.

Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 Price + Availability

The Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 has a starting price of US$ 1,599.

Local availability in Malaysia is scheduled for mid-April 2019, with the local price to be revealed later.

Why Dell Precision Is World’s Preferred Workstation!

The innovations and reliability of the Dell Precision workstation makes it the preferred choice of the world’s biggest and best companies in every industry from manufacturing and engineering to healthcare and content creation. The world literally runs on Dell Precision workstations!

Every Precision workstation is powered by powerful Intel Core i7 or Intel Xeon processors with support for large memory and storage capacities. They are also certified for professional-grade ISV software, while offering industry-leading support with Dell ProSupport Plus.

This is why the Dell Precision is the world’s preferred workstation.

 

Best Workstation For Manufacturing & Engineering

Organisations like HOK, Shelby American and Monash University have long relied on Dell Precision workstations to power their mission-critical work – everything from computer-aided engineering to complex simulation and analysis.

  • Leading global design, architecture and engineering firm HOK relies on Precision workstations to engineer and design high-performance projects from 24 offices around the world.
  • Halliburton Landmark uses Dell Precision 7720 workstations with NVIDIA Quadro graphics cards, VR headsets and Dell Canvas 27-inch touch screen displays to look deep inside the Earth and find oil much more quickly. The Precision workstations enable users to manipulate seismic data sets of up to a terabyte in size to create 3D simulations of potential oil deposits. Then, using the Canvas display or VR headsets, petroleum engineers can better visualize and understand where oil resides and how to reach it.
  • Monash University, one of Australia’s leading tertiary institutions, uses Precision workstations for all of its engineering requirements and the world-class Cave2 Hybrid Reality facility.

 

Best Workstation For Healthcare

Dell Precision workstations have been the preferred choice for healthcare services, and not just for their reliability in mission-critical applications. They are also used to power medical research, from VR medicine to precision medicine.

The University of Southern California, for example, uses Precision workstations to power Project Bravemind – a virtual reality-based exposure therapy tool used to assess and treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

 

Best Workstation For Media & Entertainment

Creative media companies like Nickelodeon and Cinesite rely on Precision workstations for all of their performance-intensive workflow.

Work that used to take days are now compressed to mere hours, because Dell Precision workstations can be equipped with Intel Xeon processors that offer up to 28 processor cores!

[adrotate group=”1″]

 

Powerful Inside

One of the secret to the success of the Dell Precision platform is the long-standing Dell partnership with Intel. Every Precision workstation – whether desktop, mobile or rack-mounted – is powered by the latest Intel Core i7 and Intel Xeon processors, with Intel vPro.

This allows Precision workstations to offer up to 28 processor cores, and memory sizes of up to 512 GB, to support the most demanding requirements.

    How Dell Precision Workstations Powered The World For 20 Years!

    Dell is one of the world’s most enduring tech brands, outlasting even IBM. Ask most consumers, and Dell brands like Alienware, Inspiron and XPS pops to mind. But did you know that the Dell Precision workstations have been powering many of the world’s greatest endeavours for the last 20 years?

     

    Dell Precision Workstations

    Dell created the Precision workstation line for CAD, architecture and computer graphics professionals. The first model – the Dell Precision 410 MT – was introduced in 1998. Powered by dual Intel Pentium II processors, it was a computing beast for its time.

    Over the next twenty years, Dell Precision workstations steadily racked up a number of firsts:

    [adrotate group=”2″]

    • the world’s first dual-core workstation
    • the world’s first mobile workstation
    • the world’s first rack-mounted workstation
    • the world’s first VR-ready mobile workstation
    • the world’s first workstation powerful enough to develop and deploy machine learning and AI applications and algorithms

    They also introduced a number of innovations like the Dell Precision Optimizer and Dell Reliable Memory Technology, while offering industry-leading support with Dell ProSupport Plus.

    It’s no surprise that Dell Precision workstations have been deployed in industries as diverse as automotive, aeronautics, oil and gas, to finance, media and entertainment. By 2016, IDC reported that Dell Precision tied HP for the title of the No. 1 Workstation Worldwide.

     

    Powerful Inside

    One of the secret to the success of the Dell Precision platform is the long-standing Dell partnership with Intel. Every Precision workstation – whether desktop, mobile or rack-mounted – is powered by the latest Intel Core i7 and Intel Xeon processors, with Intel vPro.

    This allows Dell’s Precision workstations to offer up to 28 processor cores, and memory sizes of up to 512 GB, to support the most demanding requirements.

     

    The 20th Anniversary Of Dell Precision

    To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Dell’s Precision workstations, Dell introduced the next-generation Dell Precision fixed workstation models, a special anniversary edition of the Precision 5520 mobile workstation, and the Dell Canvas.

    New Dell Precision Fixed Workstations

    The new-generation Precision 5820 Tower, Precision 7820 Tower, Precision 7920 Tower and Precision 7920 Rack combine brand-new chassis designs with the latest Intel Xeon processors, the next-generation AMD Radeon Pro SSG or NVIDIA Quadro GP100 professional graphics cards.

    Certified for professional software applications, these new Dell Precision towers come with the exclusive Dell Precision Optimizer (DPO) and Dell Reliable Memory Technology (RMT) Pro. The patented DPO optimises performance based on your unique hardware and software combination, while RMT Pro ensures that memory challenges won’t kill your workflow.

    Dell Precision 5520 Anniversary Edition

    The Precision 5520 Anniversary Edition is Dell’s thinnest, lightest, and smallest mobile workstation available for a limited time with an exclusive hard anodized aluminum, brushed metallic finish in a brand-new Abyss color with anti-finger print coating. The device is available with two high-end configuration options.

    Dell Canvas

    Dell Canvas is a new workspace, designed to make digital creative work more naturally. It features a 27” QHD touch screen that sits horizontally on your desk and can be powered by your current PC ecosystem and the latest Windows 10 Creator’s Update.

    A digital pen offers precise tactile accuracy and the totem offers diverse menu and shortcut interaction. Dell Canvas is already supported by some of the most critical professional applications in the industry.
