Dell EMC Navigates A Host Of New Business Issues
David Goulden, president of Dell EMC, and Jeremy Burton, chief marketing officer for Dell EMC (pictured l. to r.), recently sat down with CRN to talk about the massive changes impacting the company since it was formed from last year's acquisition by Dell.
In this part of a two-part conversation, Goulden and Burton discuss the potential impact should the Trump administration impose trade sanctions against China, the advantages (and there are many) of doing business and developing new products as a private instead of a public company, and competitive pressures from sometime-rivals, sometime-partners like Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Cisco Systems.
And given Dell EMC's position as one of the top two vendors in the hyper-converged infrastructure industry, Burton also had some strong words about HPE's acquisition of SimpliVity.
Read about these issues and more and then look for the other half of the discussion, which focuses on technology.
