The Dell EMC Hockey Tour recently concluded its regular season in home of the Hockey Hall of Fame, Toronto, Ontario. I had the pleasure of presenting the Dell EMC IT Transformation Story as part of the program. I spent some time with Jeff Smith (@JeffSmithVCE), Dell EMC CPSD CTO between the presentations and faceoff. Converged Platforms are enabling our customers to address both IT and Digital Transformation. Jeff talks Converged and Hyper-Converged and how our customer conversations have evolved since the early days (2009) and how Hyper-Converged conversations are redefining what customers can expect from Dell EMC.
After that, I had the opportunity to talk to Patrick Harkins, CTO Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre. Patrick found himself facing poor application performance and unhappy doctors, specifically related to a Medatech application. The answer? XtremIO – While the All-Flash Performance provided 60-70% performance gains, he found the real value in the in-line data services and scale-out architecture all at lower cost than his previous solution.
