Fifteen years ago this technology was limited to Colombo and suburbs.

Government policies and initiatives have helped to take ICT to rural areas with Telcos taking the lead in building the infrastructure backbone.

This ICT infrastructure is the foundation on which the other players in the industry are based. Today computer and ICT is used by people in most rural areas such as Dehiattakandiaya or Monaragala and the number of computers that are sold in remote areas is increasing.

People use internet, social media and entertainment applications in urban and rural due to this strong infrastructure backbone and availability of technology. We are ahead of our neighbouring countries in many aspects of technology, Fearnando said.

After the company started its transformation four years ago Dell introduced innovative technology solutions and services global customers rely on. During the past four years Dell has invested over $10 billion to deliver innovative, high performing end-to-end solutions to support the evolving needs of its consumers.

Today Dell is better positioned than ever before to deliver innovative solutions and are investing to help our customers to be successful and secure in a world being transformed by the forces of cloud, big data and mobility, he said.
