Breaking down the digital divide in India – Discover at #DellTechForum

By now, we all know how the year 2020 has accelerated the pace at which technology is becoming commonplace – at work as well as in our lives. The scenario in India is no different.

From embracing a hybrid way of work – to education and medical consultations taking place online – to rising preference for contactless digital transactions, almost every business across industries in India is exhibiting how technology plays a ubiquitous role in keeping the business running.

However, we still have much to do, especially when it comes to bridging the digital divide in the country.

Over 65% of the Indian population resides in rural areas and towns 1 . And the rural economy contributes about 46% to the national income 2 . This implies that with the right contribution and effort from private organizations and government bodies, India’s digital future would unfurl a brilliant story. The government of India and regulatory bodies have already invested in a number of initiatives such as BharatNet to empower Gram Panchayats with internet connectivity, Zero-balance Jan Dhan savings bank accounts to propel a digital payment infrastructure in rural India, and other such initiatives focused at fostering digital readiness among the rural populace.

When it comes to organizations’ involvement, setting several milestones in accelerating India’s digital journey is the technology behemoth – Dell Technologies. The tech giant has been relentlessly working towards catalyzing digitalization in the country. With its wide portfolio of innovative technologies and solutions, Dell Technologies has not only been enabling Indian businesses (big and small) with their digitalization journey but has also helped in honing digital literacy across the rural parts of the country. From remote work technologies for the shifting workforce to integrated IT solutions for new business models to a number of tech-driven initiatives for the youth, Dell Technologies has always been at the vanguard of transformation.
