I recently watched the movie “Chariots of Fire” with my son. It tells the story of two track athletes competing for Great Britain in the 1924 Olympics. Both of us marveled at the athletes’ physical ability and intestinal fortitude. From the sound of the starting gun, an Olympic athlete’s body surges for maximum performance. Heated competition demands their heart deliver oxygen, and their muscles deliver power to provide the right resources, at the right time to help them win.

It made me think about how Dell APEX as-a-service solutions enable industries such as Financial Services, Healthcare, and Manufacturing to quickly scale as demand increases, providing performance, addressing customer demands, and besting the competition. As a backbone to any economy, these industries need the right resources, at the right place and time, to keep winning.

Continuing the analogy, consider the role of an athlete’s coach. The coach is their expert resource and partner, focused on helping them to become a better athlete. The coach understands each athletes’ unique challenges, identifies the equipment and resources they need, and crafts outcome-first training solutions to help them reach their goals. Dell Technologies functions as your business’s coach, taking an outcome-first approach to helping you achieve your goals, even as business needs change and evolve.

APEX is core to this approach, helping you to reduce complexity and adapt to evolving conditions. APEX makes it possible for you to focus your time and efforts on strategic imperatives at hand and digital transformation, all at the same time.
