Dell seeks input from our software partners when we design our professional workstations because no one knows more about what you need to do your job well than the people who developed your applications. To help complement that partnership our platforms are tested by software companies until they earn the title 'certified'.
The term 'certified', an industry standard label, is granted by workstation software companies to hardware partners meeting their specific standards. Application vendors run tests to insure the hardware platform and its individual components work without error. By eliminating the issue of incompatibility, both software and hardware vendors help reduce troubleshooting and resolution time and can get their customers back to business quickly. At Dell, workstation certification also means that Dell engineers work side by side with application vendors to optimize configurations and find the right balance between performance and peace of mind. The result is a workstation that comes standard with confidence.
