Op woensdag 6 december 2017 vindt in De Fabrique in Maarssen weer het Dell EMC Forum plaats. Een dag boordevol inspirerende keynotes, breakout-sessies en uitgelezen momenten om onder het genot van een hapje en drankje te netwerken met peers. Dell EMC organiseert deze conferentie samen met een groot aantal partnerswaarmee ze invulling gaan geven aan het thema van het evenement: Realize. machine learning

 

De openingskeynote op het Dell EMC Forum wordt dit jaar verzorgd door Aaron Chaisson, Vice President of Portfolio Messaging and Competitive Intelligence van Dell EMC. In aanloop naar het het evenement legden we Aaron een aantal vragen voor over zijn rol binnen Dell EMC en wat hij voor ons in petto heeft tijdens het Dell EMC Forum op 6 december.

Aaron, jouw rol is Vice President of Portfolio Messaging and Competitive Intelligence van Dell EMC. Wat houdt dat in? En als we dat koppelen aan het thema ‘Realize’… wat realiseer je bij het bedrijf en bij klanten?

Het is iets langer dan een jaar geleden dat Dell en EMC besloten samen verder te gaan en de grootste IT vendor te worden die klanten door hun gehele digitale transformatie kan leiden. Dell, Dell EMC, Pivotal, RSA, Secureworks, Virtustream en VMware vormen nu samen Dell Technologies. Wij hebben een duidelijke visie op hoe we klanten daarbij willen helpen. Het is mijn specifieke rol om klanten, partners en de industrie in zijn geheel te laten zien wat de kracht is van de gecombineerde onderdelen binnen Dell Technologies. Ik breng veel van mijn tijd door bij ‘traditionele’ organisaties die wij helpen bij het realiseren van hun transformatie. Ik praat dan vooral met het c-level over digitale transformatie, workforce transformation en de rol van beveiliging daarin. Samen ontwikkelen we een langetermijnvisie op deze belangrijke thema’s.

Digitale transformatie raakt elk aspect van een organisatie. Wat zijn volgens jou de eerste stappen die een organisatie moet nemen om te transformeren?

Een belangrijk kenmerk van de transformatie waar wij hier mee te maken hebben, is dat het tijd kost om van de ene situatie in de andere (gewenste!) te geraken. Daarom is het goed een stappenplan te maken zodat u regisseur blijft over het proces.

  1. Een eerste, zeer belangrijke stap in dit proces is dat u bepaalt wat u wilt bereiken met digitale transformatie. Dat lijkt een no-brainer, maar mijn ervaring is dat niet elke organisatie dat van tevoren goed in kaart heeft gebracht. Welke business value moet worden behaald, welk IT-model past daarbij en welke emerging technologieën helpen om dat doel te bereiken? Is dat IoT? Real time data analytics? Alles is mogelijk, maar zorg ervoor dat het einddoel duidelijk is.
  2. Een volgende stap is zorgen dat u genoeg geld heeft om uw digitale transformatie te kunnen bekostigen en kunt blijven innoveren. Het is bekend dat de meeste CIO’s vooral moeten besparen en niet zozeer investeren. Het geld voor de transformatie moet ergens vandaan komen. Zorg dat dat geld er komt en dat de belangrijkste stakeholders ervan overtuigd zijn dat het een juiste investering is. Zo voorkomt u dat u halverwege het proces in de knel komt vanwege beperkte financiële resources.
  3. Een derde belangrijke stap is dat u ook tijdens de transformatie de nodige aandacht moet geven aan de bestaande processen en systemen. Een organisatie is geen rups die zich tijdelijk in zijn cocon terugtrekt om vervolgens volledig getransformeerd ten tonele te verschijnen. De digitale transformatie gebeurt ‘on the job’. Die aandacht moet vooral ook uitgaan naar de mensen die die processen beheren en tegelijk moeten transformeren. De meeste mensen staan van nature niet te springen om te veranderen. De ‘soft side’ van de digitale transformatie wordt nog wel eens onderschat, neem die kennis mee in uw plannen.

Welke drie punten moeten de mensen straks onthouden na jouw keynote?

  • Punt één: Technologie verandert echt in razend tempo en het verandert complete industrieën. Ook de industrie waarin u werkt. Misschien is dat nu nog niet merkbaar, maar dat zal absoluut snel gebeuren!
  • Punt twee: Ga op zoek naar een betrouwbare partner die u kan helpen bij het maken van plannen voor en het daadwerkelijk realiseren van digitale transformatie. Dell Technologies helpt organisaties bij alle aspecten van digitale transformatie: van producten tot consultancy en zelfs het financieren daarvan. Dell Technologies is het enige bedrijf ter wereld dat dit op dit niveau kan realiseren.
  • Punt drie: Of u nu aan het begin van uw digitale transformatie staat, of al enige tijd onderweg bent, Dell Technologies kan op elke moment inspringen om u verder te helpen. Wij hebben de ervaring, de mensen en de oplossingen.

Digital transformasjon: Derfor er endring viktig

Alle virksomheter drømmer om å ligge et hestehode foran konkurrentene. En rapport utarbeidet av Institute For The Future for Dell Technologies anslår at 85 prosent av jobbene i 2030 ikke er funnet opp enda, og ferdighetene som vil behøves er enda ikke kartlagt. For å forbli relevante i arbeidsmarkedet må vi derfor legge oss i selen og lære så mye vi kan om den nye teknologien som blir tilgjengelig.

På Dell EMC Forum retter vi blikket fremover og du får innsikt i:

  • Den nyeste teknologien som sikrer deg funksjonalitet tilpasset det moderne datasenteret
  • Hvordan teknologien vil endre måten vi jobber på
  • Hvorfor sikkerhet er et av de viktigste stikkordene i årene som kommer

 

Konferansen har som vane å bli fulltegnet før påmeldingsfristen går ut. Det er få uker igjen, så vi anbefaler at du sikrer deg plass allerede i dag.

Am Dell EMC Forum 2017 wurde das große Ganze der digitalen Transformation sichtbar. Auf dem technischen und logischen Fundament von Dell EMC kann jene große Transformation stattfinden, die unsere Welt letzten Endes massiv verbessern wird.

Ein fast genau ein Jahr nach dem Zusammenschluss zeigte sich am DellEMC Forum 2017 die gesamte Bandbreite des “auf dem Markt einzigartigen Portfolios” des “größten privat geführten Technologieunternehmens der Welt”, so die Eröffnungsworte von General Manager Stefan Trondl.

General Manager Stefan Trondl eröffnet das DellEMC Forum 2017General Manager Stefan Trondl eröffnet das DellEMC Forum 2017

Die eigene Innovationskraft gepaart mit starken strategischen Partnerschaften machen DellEMC zu DEM Zugpferd der großen Transformation. „Das Feedback unserer Kunden und Partner ist überragend“, fügte Trondl hinzu.

Intel und Microsoft live auf der DellEMC-Stage: Zufriedene Partner. Intel und Microsoft live auf der DellEMC-Stage: innovative Partnerschaft.

Wer Transformation realisiert, braucht Partner

Die Transformation muss, soll und darf nicht allein von der IT ausgehen oder dort durchgeführt werden. Wir reden zwar viel von den technischen Möglichkeiten, es geht aber darum, die gesamte Organisation zu revolutionieren.

Auf der Partner-Expo fanden sich daher viele Unternehmen ein, die unsere Vision von der großen Transformation teilen und ihre Lösungen anbieten.

Neue Technologien können uns dabei helfen, bisher unlösbare Probleme zu lösen und bieten uns völlig neue Möglichkeiten – dabei sind sie alles andere als ein Selbstzweck.

Das spiegelt sich besonders in der Legacy-Of-Good wieder.
Louise Koch, Corporate Sustainability Lead,
Dell EMC EMEA, bot in ihrer Break-Out-Session einen tiefen Einblick in unsere Nachhaltigkeits-Initiativen zur Steigerung der Energieeffizienz bei gleichzeitiger Ressourcenschonung.

“Realize your Transformation”: Warum und wie

Nigel Moulton, CTO Converged Platforms and Solutions Division, Dell EMC EMEANigel Moulton, CTO Converged Platforms and Solutions Division, Dell EMC EMEA

Nigel Moulton,  CTO Converged Platforms and Solutions Division, Dell EMC EMEA, zweigte in einer Top-Keynote den Weg in die Zukunft auf:

1. Die digitale Transformation.
Im ersten Schritt gilt es die Basis zu schaffen. Durch die Digitalisierung aller Daten, Dokumente und Unterlagen wird die Voraussetzung dafür geschaffen, dass Prozesse optimiert werden können. Basierend auf der Analyse werden Abläufe effizienter, schneller und effektiver gestaltet.

2. Die Transformation der IT
Die IT-Transformation ist eine grundlegende Überarbeitung der IT-Systeme einer Organisation. Änderungen an Netzwerkarchitektur, Hardware, Software und der Art wie Daten gespeichert werden und wie auf sie zugegriffen wird, führen von einer reaktiven, unflexiblen Organisation zu einem proaktiven, flexiblen Teil des Unternehmens. Aus der IT heraus werden nun neue Geschäftsmodelle entwickelt und umgesetzt.

3. Workforce Transformation
In der digitalen Wirtschaft von heute tragen wir Supercomputer in den Hosentaschen. Diese always-on-Konnektivität bietet eine noch nie da gewesene Chance für Unternehmen ihre Kunden zu bedienen. Von der Modernisierung der Endnutzer-Geräte, über die Flexibilisierung von Arbeitsweisen bis zur Förderung einer Kultur der Innovation: die Transformation der Arbeitswelt ist eine der großen Themen unserer Zeit.

“Die große Transformation besteht aus 4 Stufen oder Dimensionen. Diese bauen aufeinander auf und wirken aufeinander ein”, Nigel Moulton.

4. Die Transformation der Security
Ideen und Informationen befeuern das Wachstum und schaffen unternehmerische Werte
. Um datenorientierte Entscheidungen schnell und ortsungebunden treffen zu können, müssen Informationen ungehindert und jederzeit fließen können. Unternehmen haben daher dafür zu sorgen, dass ihre aus Daten und Gerätenbestehenden Ökosysteme, gleichsam sicher als auch flexibel sind. Hier geht es um die zuverlässige Bereitstellung der Daten und der Infrastruktur als auch um Cyber-Security und Compliance-Anforderungen.

Transformierte Unternehmen finden in unserer Unternehmensgruppe mittlerweile eine Anlaufstelle, um sich weiterzuentwickeln. Mit www.pivotal.io befindet sich ein Partner für Entwickler, Unternehmen und Organisationen unter dem Dach von Dell Technologies, mit dem neue Lösungen auf der Basis transformierter Strukturen agil entwickelt werden können.

Exponentielles Wachstum im Bereich der digitalen Innovationen. Auch wenn die Begriffe mittlerweile geläufig sind, so steckt dahinter eine schwer vorstellbare Entwicklung. Viele IT-Leader geben an, dass sich ihre Transformationsprojekte erst herausbilden oder im Entstehen begriffen sind. Jetzt zu handeln ist das Gebot der Stunde um am Markt wettbewerbsfähig zu bleiben.

Zu warten macht keinen Sinn in einer Phase der Beschleunigung. Planvolles Vorgehen und fundierte Strategien sind nötig, ebenso wie die richtigen Technologien und Workflows. Dabei müssen die Mitarbeiter an Bord und das gesamte Unternehmen für die Gefahren der digitalisierten Ära gewappnet sein.

Know-How und Vernetzung am Dell EMC Forum 2017

The future is fast approaching with new opportunities, some of which have no equal in the past. Yet this wave of promise also comes with a lot of uncertainty. Modern business leaders are hungry for context and eager to establish journeys that will take them to the head of the pack.

Understanding the powerful transformation that has started to arrive on our shores is not a question of technology. It is foremost a challenge around business: is your vision, culture and ambition in sync with the potential that the so-called fourth industrial revolution is starting to offer?

This is the crux of the upcoming Dell EMC Forum, themed Let The Transformation Begin, to be held on 24 May 2017 in Casablanca, Morocco.

Leading the discussion will be the keynote from Margaret Franco, Dell EMC EMEA Marketing Vice President. Margaret is a highly experienced business leader with a long marketing and product management history in the technology industry. Her career includes tenures at Compaq, HP, AMD and Dell, where she served in various senior and executive positions.

Margaret has an MBA with a concentration in Marketing from the University of Houston and a Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts from the Southern Methodist University. Her specialties include strategy development, product marketing, planning, life cycle management, P&L optimization, CXO level customer interface, integrated marketing, brand management, as well as marketing and sales programs.

At the Casablanca Dell EMC Forum, Margaret will explore the impact of the next industrial revolution and how businesses can incorporate this event into their own planning and aspirations. In a world where every person and organisation now has faster access to innovative goods and services, how can your business meet those same expectations as well as thrive and grow its market share? These themes will be unpacked from a business perspective, leaning on Margaret’s deep understanding of both commerce and technology.

Do not miss this opportunity to learn of Margaret’s experiences, as well as engage with her and other business professionals from across the Moroccan business and technology sectors.

Dell EMC Forum Cairo - Preview

Posted by Suhela Apr 18, 2017

DEF16-Facebook-Cover-850x315_Cairo.jpg

Huge shifts in the modern business world are being driven by rapidly increasing data volumes, unprecedented connectivity and evolving demands from the workforce. Expanding on last year’s Forum, Dell EMC wants to help equip IT professionals with the latest information on technologies, mindsets and delivery methods that will drive success in the new digital era.

The Dell EMC Forum 2017 will take place in Cairo on April 19 and will specifically focus on the demands for achieving digital transformation. From applications and data, to infrastructure and security, Dell EMC understands the power and potential of capitalizing your IT environment.

The need for IT modernization is apparent.

The new digital economy is transforming the way we live and work by creating a world where everything is connected, and powerful new insights are at our fingertips.

“Every person and organization now has faster access to innovative goods and services and they expect the same from your company.” – Patricia Florissi

 

Many organizations face critical IT modernization issues. Outdated legacy systems are often the biggest hurdle, but other modernization challenges can include lack of qualified staff, budget constraints and security concerns. But embarking on a journey of digital transformation need not be a fearful experience.

Dell EMC Forum is designed to deliver the latest IT news and information in an interactive platform that delivers an in-depth understanding of the technologies, mindsets and delivery methods, helping you drive success in the new digital era.

What can you expect from Forum 2017?

Another session by Jeff Smith, @jeffsmithvce, will cover: Buy vs Build:  Converged Platforms are the New End Game.

J Smith Pic.jpg

Session abstract:

Customers increasingly need to focus on differentiating themselves from their competitors. To do so, today’s IT must embrace the modern data center and break down silos of complexity and streamline operations to keep pace with today’s on-demand business culture.  Successful customers target investments in areas where they can derive differentiation against their competitors. Infrastructure isn’t one of those areas!

Customers should instead focus on:

•      Getting infrastructure operational as quickly as possible after it arrives

•      Enabling (not impeding) business apps

•      Making infrastructure growth transparent to the needs of the application

So the question becomes – should IT focus on integrating together all of the technologies and components required to build infrastructure? Or should they spend the bulk of their time and resources on business innovation, choosing instead to buy and consume engineered solutions that provide the speed, agility and simplicity required to compete in today’s digital economy?



We look forward to meeting you in Miami!

The future is here. Organisations can no longer keep rationalising the technology directions that were once brilliant, but today represent the dragging legacy of technical debt. The performance of applications sit close to the momentum of the business. If organisations hope to take the reigns of data analytics, mobile services, the cloud, software defined solutions and more, they have to revisit their technology and culture.

“We see a huge set of challenges around siloed organisations that are not easily coming together in terms of how different people in operational teams work together to deliver IT to the business,” said Nigel Moulton, EMEA CTO at VCE, part of the Dell EMC Federation of companies.

nigel-moulton.jpg

Moulton, a veteran with more than 25 years in the IT and telecommunications industry, will appear as keynote speaker at the Dell EMC Forum 2017 this March in Johannesburg. He has experienced this transition in the business landscape from the view of numerous businesses and will be exploring his views on approaching the challenges of starting digital transformation. Moulton will look at how organisations can take advantage of data, cloud, mobile, software-defined technologies, converged infrastructure and more to boost their applications and other business drivers, while taking back control of their budgets.

Tackling the technology component of this transformation is daunting. But Moulton places even more emphasis on organisational transformation: how IT teams and structures can be realigned to help their companies step onto the third platform. The two go hand-in-hand.

“The challenges you face are broadly the same faced by IT professionals in other countries and industries,” Moulton told attendees at THINK Cloud for Health. “It comes down by and large to culture. The cultural change that is required within people to drive organisational change, because without organisational change, you can’t drive the way people work and consume services. But don’t think you’re alone in this.”

Moulton will be exploring these themes both in his keynote speech as well as more directly with attendees of the Dell EMC Forum 2017, held on 9th March 2017 at the Sandton International Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
