Businesses need Information Technology (IT) everyday and it is important for them to adapt to growing  technologies to drive to keep up with competitive demands.

These were the comments made by GEM IT Solutions general manager Pradeep Mascarenhas at the Dell EMC Enterprise IT event at Novotel in Lami yesterday.

“For businesses today in Fiji, we do not have the luxury of having expert guidance on the expertise visiting to Fiji often to solve the demands of IT challenges,” Mr Mascarenhas said.

“It is also an opportunity to address the challenging growth needs.

“This will also help our customers to see how an IT can be used as an innovative solution.”

He said customers using Dell would benefit greatly after attending this workshop.

“We are trying to help customers from IT initiative about how they can improve their business, about how they can add value being an IT professional and taking this new level to the next level,” he said.

“Customers will have a chance to speak to the experts.

“They will also have a chance to network and share with each other the best practices and see how IT can be a driving factor in their respective businesses.”

Mr Mascarenhas said a lot of time and energy is spent by businesses managing IT, so this particular session will help the customers in managing IT.

This is because today, he said the technology is that the IT infrastructure is automatic and intelligent enough to manage itself.

Mr Mascarenhas added customers could spend more time managing their projects instead of having to worry about problems in the IT division.

“In the past people had neglected IT or it was not a prime driving factor,” he added.

“This will help our team because if you look at any business to that extent, businesses are using technology.”

He outlined, Fiji’s IT standards had improved over the years, but there was still room for improvement.

The event was attended by 70 Dell customers here in Fiji.

A similar event has been organised for businesses in the Western Viti Levu which will be held at Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa on the 1st of December.



Dell EMC is a US based company which sells data storage, information security, virtualization, analytics, cloud computing and other products and services that enable businesses to store, manage, protect, and analyze data.

GEM IT Solutions is the premium partner in Fiji distributing Dell products and services.
