Build on a legacy of innovation. That was one of the six lessons John Powers, principal, Deloitte Consulting, LLP, says was learned from the merger of Dell and EMC.It’s one that we continue to leverage as today Dell EMC World officially evolves to become Dell Technologies World, happening April 30 – May 3, 2018.As Sam Pudwell of Silicon UK said after Dell EMC World last year, trying to get your head around the breadth of Dell Technologies is a seriously complex task.“The sheer scale of products and services on offer from the companies under its umbrella is staggering,” Pudwell said. “Which has been reflected this week in the size of the conference, the first time the whole ‘family’ has been in one place.”Since we will be bringing the whole family back again, it only made sense to change the name of the event to reflect the full power of seven technology leaders, all in one place.And you can register now to join us and discover emerging trends, get hands on with the latest tech – CRN highlighted “15 Hot Products Unleashed At Dell EMC World 2017” – and meet up with the gurus who make it all happen.And we mean really make it happen.

That’s a hard thing to do because synergy typically requires giving up on singular features to pay for the synergistic features,” said Moorehead. “The company appears to be firing on all cylinders across several fields—servers (gaining share), HCI (gaining share), data protection, storage (gaining share), IoT (EdgeX Foundry leadership), AR/VR.”You can expect to hear and see more of this at Dell Technologies World this year.Register now and join us to take your thinking beyond infrastructure towards business applications, management, cloud, mobility and security.P.S.
