Dell EMC unleashes new innovations to accelerate DX

Dell EMC has announced a wave of new modern data centre innovations, each serving a specific and meaningful role toward helping customers realise their goals for digital transformation (DX).

During the ongoing Dell EMC World conference, the company reiterated the notion that digital transformation will change fundamentally how every business in every industry is built and operated, and how it interfaces with customers.

According to the firm, the unprecedented amounts of users, applications and data volumes will simply break traditional infrastructure. To succeed in this new digital world, companies will require an IT transformation.

Dell EMC said that today’s new announcements will help customers along this path by basing their IT on a modern architecture as the foundation for a hybrid cloud. The announcements also make it easier for companies to buy from Dell EMC through the adoption of a cloud-like pricing model. Customers can scale up or scale down their environments, only paying for what they use at the component level, or at the data centre level.

“The digital transformation mega trend will only intensify, reinforcing the need to start the IT transformation journey now,” said David Goulden, president, Dell EMC. “Dell EMC is the ideal partner to help customers take this first step. The creation of Dell EMC has rapidly accelerated our ability to develop and deliver technologies that will underpin the next wave of innovation and progress for our customers.”

Companies that are lagging in the IT transformation curve are those that are held back by legacy infrastructures. As organisations look to digitally transform, IT maturity may be a deciding factor for determining which companies win. In fact, the new Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) 2017 IT Transformation Maturity Curve study commissioned by Dell EMC shows that 85 percent of the most mature organisations believe they are in a “very strong” or “strong” position to compete and succeed in their market over the next few years contrasted with 43 percent of the least mature companies. However, making any progress in IT maturity drives agility, innovation and improved business outcomes.

Among the key products announced by the firm today include the new 14th Generation of PowerEdge Servers, XtremIO X2, VXRAIL 4.5 and a new Cloud Pricing model for VXRail.
