How Blue Connections works with Dell Technologies

Client Reference:

Daronmont Technologies

To support military performance in the field, defence force training off the field is critical. But there’s another critical factor also at work: how best to deliver Australian Defence Force training.
For example, is the training delivered efficiently and effectively, using robust and easy-to-maintain systems?
Recently, Blue Connections, Dell Technologies and Daronmont Technologies answered these questions for the ADF.
