Dell’s CTO has laid out the company’s vision of where enterprise technology is headed in 2019, and it’s not what people were predicting a few years ago.
Gone is the talk of the demise of the data center. Instead, the data center is being repurposed, and some of its tasks are being moved to the edge, said Robert Hormuth, CTO and vice president of Dell EMC Server Infrastructure Solutions. This, he said, is a time to be disruptive before your competition.
In a recent blog post, Hormuth said IT must be the enabler of the transformational journey for IT. “Businesses must transform and embrace the digital world, or get run over by a new, more agile competitor with a new business model benefiting from advanced technologies like data analytics, AI, ML, and DL. No business is safe from the wave of digital disruption,” he wrote.
