Driving Business Value Through IT Transformation Master Class

Frederic Dussart By Frederic Dussart Senior Vice President & General Manager, Dell Technologies Consulting Lead, APJC & EMEA October 16, 2014

With the global economy seeing early signs of recovery, businesses are now looking at IT to create value and become more agile to create differentiation in a highly competitive marketplace.

For IT organizations, this creates a real challenge. We are dealing with the perpetual necessity to cut costs whilst balancing the need to invest in emerging technologies and innovative ways to augment the IT value chain. It seems, however, there is a simple answer: ‘Software-Defined’ with ‘No Limits’!

With VMworld Europe concluding today, you can expect a catalyst of momentum around how software is empowering IT to break down walls, demolish barriers and reveal the opportunities ahead.

To celebrate and examine this concept in more detail, the Financial Times asked EMC and VMware to record a short video series on the key elements of how to drive business value through IT Transformation. Over the next few weeks we will release a total of five videos, each addressing an area to cover when considering a transformation.  To follow the series, bookmark this blog!

Chapter One – Drivers for IT Transformation

In the first of this series of master-class videos, we explore how the convergence of cloud, big data and mobile technology is driving IT transformation across businesses.

With traditional business models being disrupted by these new technologies, senior technologists from EMC and VMware discuss why, despite pressures from the business for IT organizations to cut operational costs and address the burden of legacy IT applications and infrastructure, changing business expectations in a recovering economy are creating a phenomenal opportunity for organizations to create first mover advantage – if IT can keep pace with the business.
