8 Biggest Partner Takeaways From Dell's Q1 Earnings Report
'100%' Agree With Storage Portfolio Simplification
CRN was first to report in May that Dell EMC is establishing a new simplified storage product lineup aimed at accelerating product innovation. Dell engineering teams will now squarely focus on a single product line for each storage market segment from low end to midrange to high end and a separate product for the unstructured file and object storage market.
"When I talked to customers and said, 'Would you rather buy four midrange products or one, and the right one, with all of our best IP?' The answer is overwhelmingly positive to the degree of 100 percent that, 'We'd prefer to buy one product that's the right product with all of the Dell EMC technology and IP in it,'" said Clarke. "We have started simplifying the portfolio into a roadmap squarely directed at meeting customer needs and winning in the market."
