Today, EMC kicks off the 16th annual EMC World conference in Las Vegas. Nearly 10,000 IT professionals from over 100 countries will gather to learn about the strategies and technologies that will transform IT and business.


Our theme for EMC World is “Modernize”. Here, we will demonstrate how we help customers modernize the way they build and deliver IT services to drive innovation and compete as a digital business. We’ll show customers how our best-of-breed technology, legendary customer service, and broad ecosystem of technology and services partners stand apart from our peers and how we are committed to helping customers transform and grow by decreasing costs, increasing agility, removing risks and driving innovation.

Joe Tucci will kick off our lineup of general session keynotes today at 1PM ET/10AM PT, where he’ll discuss how the industry has changed. Then, we’ll be joined by special guest Michael Dell, who will share his vision of the future of the industry and the combined Dell and EMC business. David Goulden will then outline how EMC enables business and IT transformation, and will be joined on stage by Rodney Rodgers to discuss running mission-critical applications in the cloud and Kevin Roche who’ll introduce new services innovation.

Tomorrow, we’ll hear from EMC leaders Jeremy Burton, Guy Churchward, and Chad Sakac and Ray O’Farrell of VMware on how to modernize your data center by transforming the way IT operates and delivers services.

On Wednesday, Jeremy, Chad, CJ Desai and team as well as James Watters from Pivotal and Kit Colbert of VMware will highlight technologies that will modernize your business to deliver new products and services to enhance customer experiences in a digital world.

With the rise of mobile devices, cloud computing, the Internet of Things and other disruptive forces, IT leaders face complex data center priorities. Beyond addressing these priorities in general sessions, you’ll find a deep and broad range of educational tracks, breakout sessions and labs to highlight how we help IT leaders:

  • Modernize IT infrastructure to support not just the traditional applications that support today’s business, but also new cloud native applications that will drive tomorrow’s business.
  • Automate to deliver a self-service experience for business users, so that IT goes from being a provider of infrastructure to a provider of services.
  • Transform IT roles and responsibilities to support delivery of IT as a Service, injecting the new skills needed to support transformation initiatives.

Whether you’re at the show in Las Vegas, in your office, or at home, you can experience EMC World 2016 and join the conversation virtually. Here’s how:

big data The game has changed. As CIOs and IT professionals, we were comfortable with controlling the environment; talking in ERP terms and timelines; and in using a liquidation/unit cost financial model to manage our operations. However, the landscape has changed and our business users expect and need IT’s help in driving agility, intelligence, innovation and value. To remain relevant, CIOs and IT organizations must reenergize IT.

On October 6th, EMC celebrated the tremendous strides the company is making to dramatically enhance our Total Customer Experience (TCE) globally. Like other EMC customers, my team and I wholeheartedly embraced cloud and big data analytics, as well as mobile and social technologies to innovate and propel us forward. That said, building on my blog earlier this year, I believe that digitization is (more…)

dinkoIn my last post, I looked into the emergence of ‘Bimodal IT’ as enterprises juggle traditional IT infrastructure with new, exploratory structures for the web-based, hyper-scale IT needed in the digital era.

The real challenge for enterprises in this context is not simply in the delivery of these resources – many have managed that. Deploying PaaS or Hadoop is just the delivery of another platform for enterprise IT teams.

The real challenge is in developing and delivering a plan that sees a more strategic migration of business applications to the ‘mode’ of IT that best suits its needs. (more…)
