Cloud has moved from the latest buzz word to a movement.  It’s vital to both IT and Digital Transformation.  Dell EMC Customers are turning to Cloud for Application Deployments on a regular basis; but as it turns out, a cloud is really an operating model not a place.  Clouds and hybrid clouds provide the foundation for a cost-effective and successful digital transformation.  This week I spent some time with Chris Cicotte (@Chris_Cicotte), Dell EMC Cloud Portfolio Messaging Director.
