Dell Technologies World Day One Announcements from Dell, VMware and Microsoft #delltechworld

Today we saw three major announcements from Dell at Dell Technologies World which is taking place at the Venitian Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. All of today’s announcements focused on their relationship with VMware under the heading "better together". Whilst VMware remains a separate company they are increasingly working closely with Dell On joint solutions. Michael Dell emphasised that this special relationship gives them key differentiation to the competition. 

Please see my video covering these announcements and my doodles from the day below.

VMworld Europe 2018 - Wednesday General Session

The second general session at VMworld 2018 in Barcelona focused on great conversations with VMware customers who have been using VMware technologies to meet their business needs. Most importantly their was an inspiring theme of how technology can and should be used for good. Martha Lane Fox founder of LastMinute.com closed the general session with the inspirational story of her life founding lastminute.com at 25 during the dot com boom before being involved in a life changing crash that involved her spending 2 years in hospital. Martha now dedicates her time to technology projects where she can drive change for good.

Today’s South West UK VMUG was sponsored by HPE and StorMagic. HPE spoke to the VMUG audience about Infosight their Storage analytics platform included today within their Nimble storage solutions but coming to other HPE product lines in the future.
