Dell has announced additional leading capabilities to its broad portfolio of VMware solutions, spanning from the edge to the core to the cloud.
These new solutions and enhanced integrations, according to Dell, were designed to help customers achieve IT transformation goals with a unified, seamless experience across PC and mobile devices, software-defined data centers, hyper-converged infrastructures and multi-cloud platforms.
According to ESG’s 2018 IT Transformation Maturity Study commissioned by Dell EMC and Intel, 88 percent of IT leaders said their companies are under pressure to deliver products and services faster. This requires having a more agile approach to IT.
“From the moment an employee first boots up their device, they’re generating information that can – and should – be used across the enterprise to make smarter, data-driven decisions. When technology infrastructure exists in siloes, businesses can’t outpace competitors, can’t grow, and can’t scale,” Jeff Clarke, vice chairman, Products and Operations, Dell Technologies, said, adding that, “Working together across the entire spectrum of IT infrastructure, Dell and VMware empower customers to clear unnecessary administrative tasks off IT to-do lists while making users happier and more productive.”
According to Dell, the new solution boost a ready to-work experience enabling employees to boot up, log in, and be productive in minutes. Preconfigured apps and settings reduce time and resources associated with manual device imaging, repackaging and shipment.
The Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE service enables automatic device setup and extends the efficiencies of cloud management to configuration and deployment.
The solutions, according to the tech giant, offer simplified PC lifecycle management with expanded Dell PC-as-a-Service offerings for more customers and regions, including PCaaS for Business (20 to 300 units) and PCaaS for Enterprise (more than 300 units).
With the new solutions, Dell offers the latest PCs, deployment options including Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE, software, peripherals, lifecycle services and financing – at a single, predictable price per seat per month.
The solutions also offer scalability and stability with a consistent foundation from edge to distributed core to cloud with the new Dell IoT Solution for Surveillance, which automates scaling enterprises on day one with customer data, speeding up return on investment.
