Hadoop Product Management and Planning at Dell EMC Converged Platforms and Solutions Division

As Strata + Hadoop World kicks off in San Jose this week, the Dell EMC team will be there in full force. In addition to our long history supporting Cloudera Hadoop with Dell EMC solutions, we’re also broadening our support with a new, open-standards based Dell EMC Ready Bundle for Hortonworks Hadoop offering.

There is clearly growing interest in this area, but during my five years managing Hadoop products for Dell EMC, I frequently hear prospective customers say, “I understand the value of Hadoop, but I don’t know where to start.” They know Hadoop is an innovative technology that offers unique opportunities as a foundation for capitalizing on the untapped values of big data; however, customers say that one or more of the following blockers are getting in the way of a successful project launch:

  • We don’t have the skill set in my organization to pull it off
  • We’ve spent a lot of time and effort on the front-end work and don’t have much to show for it

Forrester Evaluates the Value of EMC Converged Platforms for Data Center Modernization

Bob Wambach

Vice President, Marketing, Converged Platforms Division at Dell EMC
Bob Wambach is Vice President, Marketing of the Converged Platforms Division of Dell EMC. Wambach is responsible for marketing CPSDs portfolio of converged infrastructure, converged solutions and services offerings. Wambach joined VCE in 2010, having previously led marketing for Dell EMC’s Enterprise Storage Division. Prior to Dell EMC, Wambach spent over 20 years in multiple technical, management and executive roles in high technology companies.

IT decision makers are increasingly asking the simple question, “Why build what you can buy?” as they seek to modernize data center environments. For many, this means a shift of some workloads to public cloud offerings, and a thoughtful IT transformation path for on-premise infrastructure. With a broad portfolio of converged and hyper-converged infrastructure platforms – VCE Vblock, VxBlock and VxRack Systems, and VxRail Appliances – EMC enables customers to optimize a hybrid cloud to achieve better business outcomes. Today I am pleased to announce the availability of a new study conducted by Forrester Consulting, commissioned by VCE, the Converged Platforms Division of EMC. This study provides insight on how customers can evaluate converged or hyper-converged infrastructure from financial and business perspectives.
