What DellWorld 2014 says about Dell’s future in 2015 and beyond

I recently had the opportunity to attend DellWorld 2014 in my hometown of Austin, Texas.

The positive atmosphere comes as a welcome change from what seems to be a sea of turmoil encompassing the remaining server-storage players in the IT market these days. HP recently announced plans to split the company into two, separating the consumer and enterprise pieces. This news comes in the wake of IBM selling its X-series server business to Lenovo. The list of end-to-end IT providers is rapidly shrinking.
