This post comes to us from Emma Ferns of Dell’s EMEA Team:
Are you being asked to do more with less now and in the New Year? Dell’s enterprise and services team recently held an Enterprise Technology and Services ‘Vision Day’ at Chelsea Football Club’s Stamford Bridge Stadium in London, and discussed with a pan-EMEA audience ways that we can work together with our customers in the current economic environment.
In a packed programme Rick Becker, VP Blade and Solutions, John Joseph, VP Storage Marketing and Dolph Westerbos, VP Services and Solutions EMEA, talked about our vision for this marketplace and most importantly about working with customers to focus their technology investment priorities in the economic downturn we are experiencing. In short we are helping customer by simplifying IT, reducing costs and maximizing productivity.
In the video below Rick Becker speaks at length about Dell’s own experiences in the data center that have enabled us to ‘compute more and consume less’, and critically provided us with learnings to share with large organizations when advising them on the next steps they could take. Rather than sacrificing innovation and the latest technology in favor of short-term budget relief, you can make smart investments in your IT infrastructure. Though counter-intuitive, instead of taking the obvious strategy of protecting your application space at the expense of infrastructure, you need to do exactly the opposite.
