There is no requirement for me to blog about any of the content presented and I am not compensated in any way for my time at the event.  Some materials presented were discussed under NDA and don’t form part of my blog posts, but could influence future discussions.

Conclusion

I had a busy but enjoyable week. I would have liked the get to more of the technical sessions, but being given access to some of the top executives in the company via the Press, Media and Influencers program was invaluable. You might have also noticed that the product announcements weren’t as abundant as in previous years. People inside Dell Technologies tell me this is because there’s been a lot more focus on making sure things are working before they announce (or ship) products. Thanks again to Dell Technologies (particularly Debbie Friez and Konnie) for having me along to the show. Now, please enjoy this picture of my good friend Jon Klaus at the Customer Appreciation Party.
