Riyadh – Mubasher: Dell Technologies and Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Aramco) have sealed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) under which the oil giant will explore new opportunities in emerging technologies with the US Dell, according to a press release.

The recently signed agreement highlights Aramco’s aim to drive innovation in the global energy sector while paving the way for potential collaborations that could lead to future technological advancements in the fields of AI, quantum computing, edge computing solutions, and advanced computing architectures.

Aramco’s Senior Vice President of Digital and Information Technology, Nabil Al Nuaim, said: “Technologies such as AI and quantum computing offer unparalleled processing capabilities and could be gamechangers in the energy sector. The potential is limitless, and we are excited to explore new opportunities with Dell.”
