Why Michael Dell Is Pumped For 2020
Michael Dell is “super excited” about Dell Technologies’ innovation strategy and sales momentum in 2020 including the launch of a new midrange storage line to his plans to dominate the Kubernetes market.
“We’re going to focus on continuing to win in our own core areas and these new areas particularly in application platforms around Kubernetes with what we’re doing with our new Tanzu platform,” said Dell in an interview with CRN. “So we’re quite excited about what we’ve achieved this past year, but momentum continues into next year with lots of opportunity for channel partners.”
The Round Rock, Texas-based $91 billion infrastructure giant has positioned itself to take revenue to the next level in 2020 in what Dell describes as the beginning of the new “data decade” with an R&D roadmap unmatched in the industry.
“Our R&D spending is quite a bit larger than any of the competitors,” said Dell. “We remain No. 1 in public and private cloud IT infrastructure, No. 1 in overall storage share, No. 1 in storage software, No. 1 in flash arrays, No. 1 in hyperconverged infrastructure, No. 1 in server revenue and units, No. 1 in PC revenues. So lots of strength and we’re not slowing down.”
Here are ten reasons why Michael Dell is bullish about 2020.
