Dell is an American company that develops, sells, repairs, and supports computers and related products and services, and is owned by its parent company of Dell Technologies. Founded in 1984 by Michael Dell, the company is one of the largest technology corporations in the world, employing more than 165,000 people around the world.

Dell sells personal computers (PCs), servers, data storage devices, network switches, software, computer peripherals, HDTVs, cameras, printers, and electronics built by other manufacturers. The company is well known for its innovations in supply chain management and electronic commerce, particularly its direct-sales model and its "build-to-order" or "configure to order" approach to manufacturing—delivering individual PCs configured to customer specifications.[6][5] Dell was a pure hardware vendor for much of its existence, but with the acquisition in 2009 of Perot Systems, Dell entered the market for IT services. The company has since made additional acquisitions in storage and networking systems, with the aim of expanding their portfolio from offering computers only to delivering complete solutions[buzzword] for enterprise customers.

Secure Cloud Architecture SC3-cpSriA.jpg Secure Cloud Architecture SC3-cpSriA
Smart cities run largely on cloud services for efficiency and affordability reasons. Residents, government agencies, and small and medium businesses can benefit from an Architecture or Framework for privacy and rights-inclusive security practices across smart city and community cloud services. First, the City of Syracuse, New York, USA, in cooperation with Syracuse University and SC3-cpSriA Action Cluster(Smart City and Community Challenge Cloud privacy security rights inclusive Architecture) consider how the Architecture guidelines may apply. The SC3-cpSriA Action Cluster welcomes new members to broaden the debate. First, smart streetlight networks, catch basin monitoring, and water metering projects may consider if and how security, privacy, data protection and rights-inclusive cloud architecture guidelines may be followed. The ethics for facial recognition, machine learning and artificial intelligence systems and cloud services in future smart cities with privacy, security and rights-inclusive architecture will also be reviewed. Can architecture guidelines help protect citizens rights and encourage growth of smart city open data lakes, encouraging civic engagement and data privacy security and rights-inclusive innovation, entrepreneurship and economic development?
