Dell Solutions Tour 2014 Manila was one event that you shouldn’t have missed if you were a computer geek.
Now for those who follow this blog, I know what you’re thinking: “I thought this was a videogame blog”. Yes it is. If you do know one fact about me, I do my PC gaming using a Dell deskstop (an Optiplex 740 to be specific). So to technically fit this article in this site: here’s a picture of someone playing Flappy Bird on a Dell deskstop.
The Dell Solutions Tour 2014, which happened at the SMX Convention Center in SM Aura, was a two day event that lasted from March 19 to 20th. The Manila leg of the Dell Solutions Tour 2014 is actually a ‘kick start’ for the entire tour which will also go to other countries in the Asian region. This event was open to the public and it had some fun activities for the guests. There were booths wherein you can test some Dell products as well as a ‘photo booth’ at the entrance area. The event started in grand fashion with one energetic opening number. Imagine a dance number opening to Starship’s ‘We built this city’, then you know it’s an awesome opening number.
The speakers during the Dell Solutions Tour 2014 Manila talked about the “Five trends that will shape IT Decisions in 2014” (click here for a more in-depth analysis c/o Mac’s IT Trend)
1. One Cloud Does Not Fit All
2. CYOD, the new BYOD
3. Moving Beyond Transactions to Digital Relationships with Social Media
4. Big Data Analytics Gets Simpler to Deploy
5. Security at the Core of Business Strategy

After the talks of the key speakers, they did have a luncheon/Q&A portion on the other side of the SMX convention. All in all it was two days of Dell reaching out to its customers and businesses in this showcase. In my view, the Dell Solutions Tour 2014 was a good move since it’s a step up for Dell’s relationship to the entire Philippine community. I can’t wait to see what is in store for the Dell Solutions Tour 2015.
This site would like to thank the people of Dominguez Marketing and Dell for inviting us to witness some IT trends and gear for the year 2014.
