The annual Dell Technologies World conference in Las Vegas was so jam packed with information, we hardly know where to start. From the very beginning, the theme of transformation and growth was laid out and supported. Here are a few key highlights.
· In the Global Partner Summit, Dell EMC Global Channel, OEM & IoT President, Joyce Mullen, gave us a vision of how they will support our partnership going forward. She emphasized making it easier for partners to do business with Dell as well as making it easier for us to deliver transformational solutions to our clients.
· As technology continues to grow in capabilities with AI, machine learning, and AR/VR, data storage will need to keep up. To that end, Dell’s Jeff Clarke introduced the PowerEdge R840 and R940xa servers. These powerful servers were built with the future in mind but are already in use by CERN for processing data gathered with their Large Hadron Collider.
· There are exciting new advancements in VxRail. These new capabilities will enable the adoption of next generation private, hybrid, and multi-cloud technologies in VMware environments.
· Pitbull puts on one heck of a show. We were treated to a concert at the DellEMC partner appreciation party and we couldn’t help but bust a move or two. You’ll have to take our word for it as all photographic evidence has been destroyed.
All in all, the Dell Technologies World conference left us energized and excited for the future of IT and big data. If you want even more of a recap of what we learned, and how we can apply this knowledge to your business, reach out to us today.
