Dell EMC The Source Podcast #86 – SAPphire with full Michel Dell Keynote Comments

Dell Technologies and SAP have a history of building innovative, best-in-class technologies that support customers’ growing businesses. The digital economy offers incredible opportunities for businesses, but it also brings formidable challenges. IT departments struggle to derive fresh insights from complex, isolated systems. SAP and Dell Technologies together address those concerns by replacing and transforming complex systems to help reimagine business processes and deliver real-time insights from data that’s always fresh.

Sharing a tightly aligned cloud vision, Dell EMC and SAP share a joint go-to-market approach; SAPphire 2017 was the perfect opportunity to showcase Digital Transformation and our multi decade partnership.

I was able to catchup with Jim Franklin (@Jim_Franklin) during the Dell EMC / Virtustream customer appreciation event in Orlando. We talked partnership across all Dell Technologies brands, accelerating digital transformation, disruption and a special appearance during the SAPphire 2017 opening keynote.

 

If you think about the past 9 months, no one understands transformation more than Michael Dell. He shared some of the insight as a special guest of SAP CEO Bill McDermott during the opening keynote, that audio is included in this episode of #DellEMCTheSource podcast.

The Solutions Expo provides a perfect opportunity for direct interaction with over 140 Sponsors and Exhibitors, and every year the Solutions Center gets bigger (40% bigger for 2017).

Dell Technologies, and all seven strategically aligned businesses, are focused on helping our customers transform. That transformation includes Digital, IT, Security and Workforce, all areas we are focused on.   That focus was clear in the Solutions Expo Center piece, “Realize Transformation”.  Incorporating all aspects of Dell Technologies, the center piece of this year’s

Expo Hall is “Realize Transformation”; an interactive showcase of the latest technologies across all areas of transformation, with so much to see and experience you need a few hours in just this one exhibit.

I spent some time with Adeel Omer (@GeekinAustin) touring the Solutions Expo with a full tour of the Realize Transformation Experience with stops in the Storage & Data Protection, Converged Platforms Solutions, PowerEdge Server Solutions and Client Solutions Experiences.
