The Future is Now 

Jason Battles
Field CTO, Dell Technologies

Welcome to the Digital Decade! Effective government and competitive advantage will increasingly be a result of insights derived from data and the software that drives the digital experience. Successful organizations will achieve these ends most efficiently by navigating a multi-cloud world and using the disparate services therein. The “Future is Now” and Dell Technologies stands ready to help you establish a Meaningful Multi-Cloud Strategy for your organization.

It is important to note that the laws of physics, economics, and the land must be understood as they will significantly impact your success in this “digital” multi-cloud world.

Join me as we establish clarity and a direction on how you can:

  1. Accelerate time to market
  2. Optimize costs with improved cloud economics
  3. Offer choice to increase government services agility
  4. Deliver reliable services with enterprise security
  5. Provide consistent management and operations
  6. Leverage existing skills and processes
