VMware looks to thrive under Dell

Virtualisation software maker VMware expects the takeover of its parent, EMC Corp, by Dell to help it make inroads into the small and medium enterprises and businesses market in India, where the US technology giant has a large presence.

Safe And Ready For Any, Say VMware Execs

Ever since Dell announced its plans of $67 billion acquisition EMC, making it the largest tech mergers of all time – tech enthusiasts and analysts have gone wild predicting how Dell will integrate EMC into its current offerings. One of the most discussed part of the Dell-EMC merger is VMware’s fate. While, some believe Dell’s biggest gain in the deal is VMware, the independent public company acquired by EMC, several others (including heads of some rival companies) opine would Dell destroy VMware.

Dell EMC deal great on the books but not for the cooks

Computer maker Dell stirred up quite a storm in the IT industry by snapping up storage juggernaut EMC for a whopping $67 billion. The mother of all deal will have a significant impact on the enterprise technology landscape in the years to come.

The India market at this point of time is opportune for a Dell-EMC deal to take place considering India is still a host to a large number of organisations who are yet to shift workloads to the cloud. The deal would put the merged entity in a sweet spot as it would be providing end-to-end infrastructure in terms of both devices and storage. And the CIO community in India is closely watching the movements on the Dell-EMC merger.

From Transactions to Contextual Engagement: Strategy Please? with Sanchit Vir Gogia

“Competitive differentiation depends on pervasive customer engagement in a business environment that is proactive, innovative, agile and people-centric. Using Tom Peters’ principles such as “bias for action,” every person in your organization should be empowered to deliver maximum value to the customer at every moment.

According to analysts, data volume has grown over 900% in the past five years and is expected to grow at 40% year-on-year till 2020. Today, businesses are capturing trillions of bytes of data about their customers, suppliers and operations. Data is entering the system at a rate that follows Moore’s Law, doubling every two years.
