The Dell-EMC merger has made up a combined entity addressing a whole gamut of technology and services. On enterprise, its 3 focus areas are Coverage, Depth, and Width. The second big focus is convergence and hyper-convergence.
Looking at the ramifications of the Dell-EMC merger, it has helped it in a number of ways. The first and foremost is that its partners now can offer the right products and solutions under one roof. Second, to ensure they are profitable, the company launched the most talked about Dell EMC partner program in 2017. The program was hugely appreciated in the industry because it was very highly incentivized from the Edge to the core of the cloud, which means to compute, PCs and storage networking. Everything is covered in the program. Interestingly, this helped its partners strategically. Now, the third and the most important point was how it can enable partner funds to create and do multiple demand generation exercises.
Dell Technologies that we have now come to see in the market also has a product portfolio that runs end to end. The company calls it ‘Edge to the Core to the Cloud’. Simply put: Edge as in the client side includes all the end user computing devices; all products which are in the space of PCs, notebooks, workstations, projectors, etc., fall into the Edge category. Second, the Core as in the data center. So everything in the data center, be it the latest of hyper-converged infrastructure that is gaining a lot of momentum and lot of acceptance in the data center, to the traditional computer platforms which are rack servers, break servers, two-socket, four-socket racks, etc., all of that belongs to the core. And finally it leads logically to the cloud.
