Dell tackles multicloud complexity issues by simplifying IT, implementing user feedback

Dell Technologies Inc. is one of the leading names in computers, with almost four decades of experience to help the company solve constantly emerging technology challenges.

Dell is actively helping organizations solve multicloud pain points by using all the tools in its arsenal, including listening to end users.

“Everything always starts with our customers; they’re our motivation — they’re top of mind in everything we do,” said Jeff Boudreau (pictured), president and general manager of the Infrastructure Solutions Group at Dell. “My leadership team and I spend a lot of time with our customers. We’re listening, we’re learning, we’re understanding their pain points, and we want to get their feedback regarding our solutions both current and future offerings.”

Boudreau spoke with theCUBE industry analyst Dave Vellante at Dell Technologies Summit, during an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio. They discussed what partners are asking for, how Dell is supplying their users with what they want, what future innovations are coming and more. (* Disclosure below.)

Simplifying simplicity

With multicloud gaining popularity and utilization across enterprises and data becoming an increasingly valuable asset, a new breed of complexity is introduced into the equation. Data is growing at an unprecedented rate, with data creation expected to grow to 64 zettabytes by 2025.

“What are we seeing for our customers? That what they want from us and what they’re asking us for is simplicity, not complexity. The immediacy, not latency,” Boudreau explained. “They want to extract more of the value to enrich their business or their customer engagements. It creates a big opportunity for us to help our customers as that great simplifier of IT.”

Acknowledging the need for simplicity isn’t enough, as it requires direct action and innovation to satisfy client needs for reduced complexity. That’s why Dell has composed a long-term strategy for introducing more simplicity into their clients’ multicloud experiences.

“We’re focused on consumption-based solutions, which allow for a greater degree of simplicity and flexibility … the foundation for this is our software-defined common storage layer,” Boudreau said. “We’ve made headway in projects like Project Alpine. Announced in January, this is our storage as a service, which brings our unique software IP from our flagship storage platform to all the major public clouds.”
