Our Recipe For Success: Do More With Less!

The digital era is upon us. IT leaders are confronted by soaring expectations for digital transformations. The ability to innovate faster through agile, flexible resources and satisfy business demands is expected. Simultaneously, IT must maintain a reliable environment to keep core business processes rolling smoothly. Although microservices and DevOps are hot topics today, traditional IT applications and systems of record are equally as important to maintain.

How can companies transform IT to provide the speed and flexibility necessary for rapid development while keeping costs and risks low? Staff must optimize existing infrastructure and processes to reduce costs and accelerate IT service delivery without sacrificing reliability. IT transformations aren’t executed overnight. Like learning how to ride a bike, you start with training wheels and as you become more experienced keeping your balance becomes subconscious allowing you to focus on more advanced actions. IT leaders must design a plan to optimize traditional, plan-driven functions. Predictable, well understood processes should be automated to ensure consistencies so time, dollars and staff can be reallocated into next-generation operations. Time consuming, error-prone, manual tasks will be eliminated, ultimately speeding time to market and driving down costs by leveraging automation and application blueprints that have been proven to work and can be life cycled without constant human touch.

Now what about the aspect of exploration? Along with the rewards reaped from rapid innovation and iterative, outcome-focused developments come uncertainties and risks. Cloud-native application development is uncharted territory for most Enterprises and thus many IT organizations shy away from investing aggressively in new trends. To gain experience in the cloud-native realm, you start small and rapidly scale as demand for new applications grows and a solidified strategy evolves.

Like learning to ride a bike, start with some guidance and eventually you can take off the training wheels and pedal fast. EMC and Pivotal are prepared to help you gain momentum with your DevOps strategy. Organizations that are just beginning to experiment with cloud native applications now have a quick, low risk way to get started.

The struggle to pertain to two competing pressures is not a simple battle. Designing, integrating and testing a platform has taken some companies years and millions of dollars. Studies have proven investing in a fully engineered platform could have you running 92% faster and saving up to 67%.

Today, we’re announcing the latest releases of our hybrid cloud platforms:

At EMC, we are fortunate to have approximately 16,000 engineers and developers worldwide who are encouraged to work collaboratively with our customers and across our industry ecosystem. As they develop innovative technology solutions, our engineers want to be recognized not only for bringing new technology and products to market but for their impact on the broader IT ecosystem and development of the industry. That’s why we recognize our top engineers as Fellows and Distinguished Engineers. What sets this elite cohort apart isn’t just their technical expertise and technical impact, but their ability to catalyze the engineering community and transform the industry to use technology innovation to solve business problems.

Innovation at EMC is about more than developing new technology. It’s also about being able to take that technology to market, impact the industry, and ultimately change the world. Bringing new solutions to market is not easy nor is it inexpensive. Our engineers see EMC as a place with the ability and willingness to invest heavily in innovation — plus the scale and experience to bring new technology to market successfully. This experience attracts some of the industry’s most accomplished technologists to EMC, where new colleagues get to learn from some of the great IT innovators of our time. Recently, EMC’s Radia Perlman was inducted into the prestigious Inventor’s Hall of Fame. EMC Global CTO, John Roese describes Radia’s accomplishments that led to her induction and the benefits our new engineers get from working at EMC with world class innovators like Radia.

EMC Fellow and Vice President, Strategy & Innovation

According to Gartner’s Doug Laney, some 80% of executives believe the value of their company’s data is reflected on their balance sheet, yet this increasingly valuable asset is rarely managed with the same discipline, principles and practices as financial or human capital or physical assets. How can a business bridge this gap? (more…)
