I had the great pleasure last week of being invited by Dell to participate in their Enterprise Strategy Update and Social Think Tank event in San Francisco. In addition to moderating the Social Think Tank panel discussion, I was able to attend the briefing that the Dell executives were giving around their latest converged infrastructure offering; Active Systems. Dell’s new addition, Marius Haas (President of Enterprise Solutions Group) along with a handful of others like Dario Zamarian laid out the game plan for moving forward in the world of cloud computing, big data, and converged infrastructure.
As I sat and listened to Marius (a former HP’er as well) he was saying all the right things about the four design principles of a flexible enterprise: modularity, simplification, integration, and standardization although not really coming right out and saying those exact words. This was music to my ears as I have been speaking about these four design principles for many years now as the way to increase the convergence of IT and the business applying them across the business processes, applications, and infrastructure to be a truly flexible enterprise.
