Dell has seen healthy growth across all its business units in India, he said.
“Technology is playing an integral role in the global economic recovery, and we continue to see demand picking up in India,” said Ohrie.
Customers, he said, are focusing on building IT infrastructure that can help them maintain business continuity and transform workspaces. They are also using digital as they look for newer ways of reaching out and servicing their clients. They are pushing towards customer centricity and delivering successful as well as predictable business outcomes, he added.
The US-based company reported revenues of $26.1 billion, up 15% in the second quarter of the ongoing fiscal year. Operating income was at $1.4 billion, up 21%.
Dell does not provide country specific data for India. It said the domestic performance was similar to global trends.
“We are accelerating our push in the market with IT as a service and Cloud infrastructure as a service and our global project Apex, and this is giving us significant opportunities to engage with customers trying to transform their business on the digital front,” Ohrie said.
There were some clear trends playing out in the marketplace at present.
Customers are looking to manage their data better and turning to artificial intelligence and machine learning for better insights and to make real-time decisions based on that data, he said.
To prepare for the resilience and robustness of the services that they can offer and to scale up operations, clients are considering multi-cloud as the new cloud architecture.
With the rollout of 5G, new services will come into play and edge computing will take off, with an additional cybersecurity layer, he added.
India was a big focus market for Dell and home to its second highest workforce after the United States, Ohrie said.
The company will continue to hire in the country, he said, without sharing specific numbers.
Dell’s data centre solutions and other infrastructure products are in demand as companies look at various ways of using technology to transform the business and adopt new models to set up and augment their infrastructure, he said.
The Covid-19 pandemic has made companies realise that employees have to be productive irrespective of where they are.
This workforce transformation is also driving demand for Dell, Ohrie said.
