Let the Transformation Begin

In a few weeks’ time all eyes will turn to Austin, where the sun is warm, the finest food comes on trucks and the music never stops. Yes, I’m talking about Dell EMC World (Oct 18 – 20), the biggest enterprise technology event of the year and our first big event as Dell EMC.

Bigger and better than ever, Dell EMC World will be full of technical and strategy sessions, as well as a CxO event with tracks for both commercial and enterprise-sized businesses. The Converged Platforms and Solutions Division will be a critical part of the event and we’ll be showcasing the full range of our build to buy continuum, from validated systems to engineered solutions.

There’ll be plenty of new announcements which we can’t wait to share with our customers, partners and the industry. I won’t be letting the cat out of the bag if I mentioned that one of these announcements will be about the mighty PowerEdge servers which have taken the market by storm to become the market share leader as recognized by the Gartner and IDC quarterly market share report. Customers are at the heart of everything we do and our customers are demanding that we expand the reach and scope of our HCI platforms in order to give them more choice and flexibility, and do so at a better price point. I assure you we will not disappoint them.


In other news our Hybrid Cloud Platform team is working apace on an analytics platform and I can’t wait to share more details about that.

From an event participation perspective Chad Sakac, president of the Converged  Platforms and Solutions Division will be joining Jeremy Burton in a General Session: Transforming IT: From the edge, to the core, to the cloud. Featuring an all-star cast from various divisions within the company they’ll be showcasing the real heroes of Dell EMC World: the incredible new products and solutions destined to defeat any IT challenges they come up against.

Chad Sakac will answer all your questions on whether hyper-converged or converged is the right option for your business or if you should build or buy your infrastructure in a breakout session that will explain the benefits of modernizing your data center wherever you stand on the buy or build continuum.

Want to find out why developers love the Native Hybrid Cloud platform? Don’t miss Chad Sakac at the Dell EMC World Live Tech Chat with Barton George where they will discuss the importance of speeding up application development for the new digital enterprise.

With Alabama Shake providing entertainment – it’s promising to be an event the size of Texas and I can’t wait to touch down in Austin!

See you on the other side.
