In a few weeks’ time over 12,000 IT practitioners and business leaders will congregate in Las Vegas for Dell EMC World (May 8th-11th), the first time the entire Dell Technologies family of brands will be in one place, at one conference. Bigger and better than ever before, the event will put the spotlight on the products, strategies and insights customers need to drive IT innovation, enhance workforce mobility and reduce risk in the digital era.
The Converged Platforms and Solutions Division will be a seminal part of the event and we’ll be displaying our full portfolio of products on the build to buy continuum, from Blueprints Solutions to Blocks, Racks, Appliances, Nodes and Bundles, and Hybrid Cloud Platforms.
Focusing on our mission to make the complex simple for our customers – we’ll be making significant announcements around innovation in our HCI portfolio which will make it easier for our customers to leverage hyper-converged infrastructure and speed up their IT transformation. We’ll also be talking about our new Hybrid Cloud Platform solution which will be announced just before Dell EMC World and provide exciting updates on our ‘Ready’ part of build portfolio but mum’s the word – more details will be revealed during the event.
At the show, Chad Sakac, president of the Converged Platforms and Solutions Division, will be joining Jeremy Burton in the Day 3 General Session: Episode 2: The Dark IT Knight Rises: Realize the Power of Transformation. 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.
For the technology enthusiasts wanting to delve deeper into a particular subject area there’s plenty of choice, with breakout sessions on technology, IT leadership, and code and modern ops. In these sessions our subject matter experts will focus on a wide range of topics including the basics of hyper-converged, Blueprint Solutions made simple, deep dive on converged infrastructure, and an exploration of Hybrid Cloud Platforms.
If you still have questions and want a deeper dive – be sure to attend ‘Ask Chad’ for a no holds barred Q&A session with Chad Sakac in our booth (#872) on Monday, May 8th, at 6:45pm PT.
Regardless of whether you are just embarking on your IT transformation and leaning towards building your own infrastructure, or are a converged solutions veteran with a preference for buying infrastructure, the Converged Platforms and Solutions Division booth (#872) will have something for everyone.
