About This Report Letter from Michael Dell From stone tools and steam engines to spaceships and supercomputers, technology is the common thread in the history of human progress. We see it every day in the inspiring stories of our customers who are doing world-changing work, like building vertical smart farms to feed the hungry and delivering life-saving precision medicine to cancer patients via the cloud. And yet, I believe the best is yet to come.
