Dell to host UAE event
PC manufacturer prepares to spell out the benefits of its workstation models at local event for oil and gas clients
Dell is teaming up with CPU vendor Intel, graphics chipset manufacturer Nvidia and IT solutions provider Schlumberger to target major oil and gas companies in the Middle East.
The quartet is poised to host a conference dubbed the 'Precision event' in Abu Dhabi at the beginning of November to publicise the importance of technology to the thriving oil and gas sector.
According to Dell, finding oil and gas reserves is increasingly dependent on data from specialised applications and high-powered technology.
Dell intends to use the one-day event to flag up its workstation offerings and explain how they can improve business performance.
Intel, Nvidia and Schlumberger — who are expected to elaborate on the role of their ISV partners in delivering high-end solutions — will also be on hand to address the challenges of the oil and gas sector from an IT perspective.
Recent findings from IDC reveal that the oil and gas sector is a prominent contributor to the growing level of enterprise software spend in the Middle East and North Africa region.
Along with banks and discrete manufacturers, the oil and gas industry accounted for more than 40% of enterprise software spend last year.
