'Is There a Silver Lining to Cloud — Or Just a Lot of Hot Air?'
Massive data growth. An aging and inefficient data center infrastructure. A proliferation of new software and a host of costly legacy applications. These are the challenges that business and IT organizations face every day – and cloud computing is often touted as the “magic bullet” that can help businesses cuts costs, generate revenue and create new value. But if cloud is the path to business utopia, what’s stopping more organizations from making the move?

At Dell, we see the tremendous potential of the cloud – but we also know that it doesn’t mean anything if you can’t get there easily and with the least disruption to your organization. We start from one simple question: What is the business problem you’re trying to solve? From there, we help you create simple path to cloud that’s based on your strategy and goals – and that leverages your existing technology investments. In this General Session, learn how Dell’s open, scalable design focus and end-to-end portfolio of secure cloud solutions can get you on the path to real results.
