Preetham Mukhatira and Jeff Swansegar

Dell Booth #1015

Cloud computing is maturing in several ways – as a service delivery model, in rates of adoption, and in the way it’s being deployed and managed holistically. Shifting to a cloud operating model is a journey for both business and IT together. We will discuss Dell’s approach to simplifying cloud infrastructure, spanning your private, hybrid, and public cloud strategies. We will explore how customers and partners are driving new business opportunities using Dell engineered solutions, such as the Microsoft Cloud Platform and Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft, and Dell’s unique approach to hybrid cloud with financing, global services support, and partner ecosystems.
