Cloud also presents us with capabilities to enable IT to break out of silos and deliver real results on customer and organizational needs. Value creation processes are dynamic, flexible and multi-dimensional to meet the changing needs of the customer and your organization. Dell believes that cloud can be a ‘change agent’, helping to overcome capacity limitations and drive value creation rather than just reactive servicing.

With OpenStack and OpenSource, customers can get further cost benefits by not having to pay exhorbitant license fees and also get locked into proprietary vendor stacks and API/s
