Dell Opens First Solution Center in Americas

  • Round Rock Solution Center will enable customers to prove next generation solutions and technologies for their specific requirements
  • Facility is part of previously announced global $1 billion investment in solutions

ROUND ROCK, Texas--()--Dell today announced the opening of its first Solution Center in North and South America based in Round Rock to help customers test and validate their IT solutions while also helping lower IT investment risks. Dell Solution Centers will provide integrated design, test and validation of total industry solutions to help customers invest more in technology innovation to drive business value.

The Round Rock Solution Center is part of a global network of 22 planned Solution Centers providing extensive customer engagement capabilities and access to Dell technology and solutions experts. At these facilities, Dell experts will work with customers to help them make better use of their technology budgets so they can invest less on managing their infrastructure and more on technology innovation to grow their business. Through proof of concept testing in a controlled environment to ensure the solution will work in the customers’ environment and architectural design workshops based on the customers’ business needs, the Dell Solution Center provides customers and partners another resource to help solve technology challenges.

Dell employees at the Solution Center are focused on helping our customers apply Dell’s solutions against their specific industry and functional use-cases and requirements. The Solution Center will support IP development, IT architecture and engineering to support solution development and customer proof-of-concepts. In addition, the new Solution Center will play a leading role in data management, identifying solutions to meet the challenges caused by the explosive growth of data online.

Dell announced in early April it will spend $1 billion in FY12 to deliver leading solutions, services and cloud-based technologies to help customers capture the benefits of advanced computing. The Solution Center in Round Rock is part of the investment. Two Solution Centers have been opened this year, including Limerick, Ireland and Shanghai, People's Republic of China.
