Dell EMC The Source Podcast Episode 80

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.

EMC The Source Podcast #47 - Customer Corner with Mike Bishop

Everything we do at EMC is focused on helping our customers.  The Customer Corner is our way of highlighting one of those many customers.

Mike Bishop is Managing Director and Chief Systems Architect at Prescient. He has orchestrated the development of a reliable data platform capable of transforming massive data volumes into an easy-to-understand heat map for mobile travelers; keeping them clear of dangerous situations with real-time security alerts, and that’s just the beginning.

I had the opportunity to sit down with Mike in the EMC Radio Studio at EMC World 2016. It’s a remarkable story and the subject of this week’s EMC The Source Podcast.
