CI Business Value: Perpetually Yours

Join us July 28 at 10 a.m. CT for a webinar with IDC featuring compelling customer insights and business value metrics about VxBlock.

Building the Business Case for Fresh Investment

For many business and IT leaders, a key part of any IT refresh decision is demonstrating that the proposed investment will generate long-term business value. It takes a platform that easily incorporates updated, enterprise-grade technologies over time to keep you ready for what’s next. The Dell EMC VxBlock 1000, with its perpetual architectural design, is a great example of this.

In March, I shared how VxBlock 1000 helps organizations pivot to hybrid cloud with new VMware Cloud Foundation support, using vSAN as the VCF management domain and a choice of principal storage options (like PowerStore and PowerMax) for VCF workload domains.

Last summer, we introduced PowerStore options to VxBlock 1000, and this June’s release adds PowerScale F600 all-flash NAS to the wide array of storage array options in VxBlock 1000—bringing you cost-effective, massive performance for a range of scale-out use cases.

Join Us for Business Value Webinar with IDC

I invite you to join IDC’s Eric Sheppard and me for a webinar (registration required) on July 28, 10 a.m. Central Time where we’ll discuss new IDC research about the perpetual business value of VxBlock reported by a diverse group of Dell Technologies customers.

As in previous editions of the white paper, interviewed organizations again report achieving significant value by running their business-critical workloads on VxBlock. Highlights of the extensive business metrics we’ll share include:

    • 49% more productive IT teams
    • 128% more new application features delivered per year
    • 506% five-year ROI

We are now able to bring products faster to market. . . We think it’s going to have a huge bottom-line effect in the coming years because we’ll probably be 20-25% faster.” – Financial Technology Company
