Dell Sees the Writing on the Screen

Dell expands services to the cloud

The coverage of Cloud Computing gets ever wider, as reported, Apr 2, 2012, in PCWorld.

Dell is in the process of acquiring Wyse Technology, a leader in cloud computing and desktop virtualization. This acquisition is yet another definite sign that the conception of what a PC is no longer holds, but is rapidly evolving. This evolution of the PC, for those of us able to recall the days of dummy terminals, almost feels like going backwards. But, of course, it is a loose association comparing dummy terminal days to the smart phone world of today, yet it is a handy illustration in which to wrap our minds around these relatively abstract concepts.

Once upon a time, not too very long ago, there existed the dummy terminal powered by the monster mainframe computer. The interface devices of monitor and keyboard, found their life and function through the network connection to an on site mainframe. The mainframe was the powerhouse, centralized in one location, housing all the stuff (data, programs, etc.) that we have come to think of as residing inside our own individual home computers. But "The Times They Are a-Changin", as the Dylan lyrics go.

What does this mean for the future? One thing it means is the convenience of remote desktop capabilities. That is the good news. The bad news is the ever increasing threat to the security of our information. A case in point is the recent security breach for cardholders of Visa and Master Card. I don't know about you, but the news sent a chilly tingle down my spine.

Let us celebrate the wonderful ease with which our beloved data of music, books and photos transmits seamlessly from device to device, but be wary, for with all good things comes a price.

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
Concerns about security, downtime and latency, budgets, and general unfamiliarity with cloud technologies continue to create hesitation for many organizations that truly need to be developing a cloud strategy. Hybrid cloud solutions are helping to elevate those concerns by enabling the combination or orchestration of two or more platforms, including on-premise infrastructure, private clouds and/or third-party, public cloud services. This gives organizations more comfort to begin their digital transformation without a complete overhaul of their existing infrastructure - serving as a sort of "missing link" for transition to cloud utilization.
