Dell Technologies has set up a US$50 million research and development (R&D) facility in Singapore that’s plugged in to its network of Global Innovation Hubs around the world.
The Singapore centre will focus on R&D in digital transformation technologies such as augmented reality, data analytics and edge computing.
According to Amit Midha, President of Asia-Pacific and Japan, and Global Digital Cities at Dell, Singapore will drive the company’s edge computing innovations.
Located in Changi Business Park and International Business Park, the new setup will also support Dell’s existing R&D on products including monitors and client peripherals. A hardware prototyping lab will focus solely on product design, such as the development of artificial intelligence.
