Dell EMC World is now Dell Technologies World

Build on a legacy of innovation. That was one of the six lessons John Powers, principal, Deloitte Consulting, LLP, says was learned from the merger of Dell and EMC.

It’s one that we continue to leverage as today Dell EMC World officially evolves to become Dell Technologies World, happening April 30 – May 3, 2018.

As Sam Pudwell of Silicon UK said after Dell EMC World last year, trying to get your head around the breadth of Dell Technologies is a seriously complex task.

“The sheer scale of products and services on offer from the companies under its umbrella is staggering,” Pudwell said. “Which has been reflected this week in the size of the conference, the first time the whole ‘family’ has been in one place.”

Since we will be bringing the whole family back again, it only made sense to change the name of the event to reflect the full power of seven technology leaders, all in one place.

And we mean really make it happen. Make it real. That’s the theme this year for Dell Technologies World.

Attendees will not only hear about how digital transformation has accelerated disruption across industries, they will also learn practical insights and actionable next steps to make transformation real.

The company appears to be firing on all cylinders across several fields…

“There was clearly plenty of announcements and stories to digest from Days 1 and 2 of Dell EMC World,” Analyst Patrick Moorehead said in his recap of last year’s event.

“The company had to show continued synergy across all the Dell Technologies companies as well as success in the singular areas. That’s a hard thing to do because synergy typically requires giving up on singular features to pay for the synergistic features,” said Moorehead. “The company appears to be firing on all cylinders across several fields—servers (gaining share), HCI (gaining share), data protection, storage (gaining share), IoT (EdgeX Foundry leadership), AR/VR.”

You can expect to hear and see more of this at Dell Technologies World this year.
