Dell has announced innovations across its PC business designed to connect people to the content they need to maximize productivity. By introducing industry leading tablets, an innovative smart desk workspace of the future, an ultra HD 5K monitor and integrated security and manageability software solutions, Dell reaffirmed its leadership in bringing PC customers the most secure and manageable end to end solution.
According to IDC Dell’s momentum in its client solutions (PC) business continued during the third calendar quarter of 2014 as it registered its seventh consecutive quarter of year-over-year gains in global share and grew more in the third quarter than its top two U.S. competitors combined, based on preliminary data recently.
“Organizations don’t ask us for a better PC or software application. They ask us to help them improve productivity, solve problems and drive better business outcomes. That’s where Dell is innovating,” Dell’s vice chairman, Operations, and president, Client Solutions, Jeff Clarke, told customers attending the Dell World Executive Summit yesterday.
Dell is redefining the workspace through bleeding-edge products and concepts that push traditional paradigms of how people interact with technology. The groundbreaking Dell UltraSharp 27 Monitor, the world’s first display to offer Ultra HD 5K resolution (5120 x 2880), is four times the resolution of QHD and seven times the resolution of Full HD.
Dell unveiled its conceptual “smart desk” that revolutionizes the workspace of the future by combining interactive multi-touch LCD screens with a horizontal digital work surface that ergonomically surrounds the user for natural manipulation using touch, stylus and new-generation totem-based tools.
According to a recent Harris International Tablet Survey conducted for Dell, more than one third of IT organizations surveyed are apprehensive of the time required to set up, configure, manage and secure tablets when compared to laptops. They also believe tablets are more vulnerable to viruses, software security breaches and becoming quickly outdated. IT leaders are forced to address these challenges by assembling solutions from multiple IT products and vendors.
Dell is introducing updates to the popular Dell Venue 11 Pro 7000 Series tablets. Venue 11 Pro tablets are designed to accelerate productivity for mobile workers and provide secure access to content beyond the corporate firewall for easy IT management. New Venue 11 Pro features include:
- 15 percent thinner and fan-less design for a light and quiet user experience;
- Extended battery life to get through the work day;
- Travel keyboard for a full laptop experience and accompanying thin keyboard for ultra-portability;
- The latest range of Intel Core M processors;
- Stunning wide-angle (1920 x 1080) FHD IPS & 10.8-inch display;
- Docking station for a traditional monitor, keyboard and mouse PC experience;
- Tailored solutions for specialists in the field:
o Dell Healthcare Case can be fully sanitized and is specifically designed for hospitals and healthcare facilities – from the patient’s room to the operating room;

The Venue 11 Pro can be configured with additional security features including two-factor authentication with integrated smartcard and fingerprint readers as well as the Dell Data Protection suite of client security software. When configured with these options, the Venue 11 Pro is the most secure and manageable Windows tablet in the industry, earning a place on the U.S. Department of Defense Unified Capabilities Approved Products List (UC APL).
