The Dell Technologies Forum brought together the company’s IT experts showcasing the emerging technologies that will help businesses and organisations in Ireland transform ideas into innovation.

More than 400 business and IT leaders gathered at the Convention Centre Dublin to discuss the latest developments in Generative AI, harnessing data at the Edge and managing complexity in cloud environments. Attendees also benefited from insights on combating cyber threats and enhancing cyber resiliency as well as preparing for the future of work. 




The event included specific workshops and breakout sessions led by experts from Dell Technologies Ireland focused on the latest technological trends shaping the future of Irish businesses and how to remove the barriers to unlocking the next wave of innovation. This comes as the Dell Technologies Innovation Index found that only 6 per cent of organisations in Ireland have the people, processes, and technology in place to be defined as innovation leaders and adopters.

Two-time Formula 1 world champion Mika Häkkinen joined one of Ireland’s leading sports broadcasters, Jacqui Hurley, on stage to share his view on how data and new technologies are driving innovation and performance in sport.  Häkkinen won the Formula 1 World Drivers’ Championship in 1998 and 1999 and uses a range of technologies to analyse and support high-performance in his current role in driver management.

Other keynote speakers included Catherine Doyle, managing director of Dell Technologies Ireland, and Sam Grocott, senior vice-president, product marketing at Dell Technologies.

Speaking at the Forum, Doyle said: “In an environment of constant change and transformation, it’s never been more important for businesses and organisations across Ireland to innovate at speed. Organisations that embrace innovation are best placed to grow and compete in a global marketplace.

“The Dell Technologies Forum places a spotlight on the technologies and strategies that can unlock the power of innovation in the months and years ahead. From Generative AI helping organisations to transform data into intelligent application to Edge Computing accelerating the shift to digital healthcare and smart manufacturing, emerging technologies are reshaping how we work and do business.

“At Dell Technologies Ireland, we’re focused on helping our customers and partners across Ireland to unlock the business potential of AI and other new technologies.”
