Digital transformation is not a buzz word – it just happens! In these accelerated times between Dell EMC World and SAPPHIRE, let me summarize how the digital transformation in the data center is boosting the digital core, then point out my favorite announcements from Dell EMC World and give you an overview about what we have prepared for SAPPHIRE Orlando.
Many organizations are migrating their ERP systems to SAP S/4HANA. If you want to know what to consider before you get started you should take a look at the compact white paper “ERP Migration to S/4HANA – A Tactical Roadmap for Success”. It presents a high-level roadmap for migrating your current ERP system to an SAP S/4HANA system. The content is organized from an overview level to details, with self-explanatory schematic graphical information privileged over textual information. Continue Reading
EHC 4.1.1 is now available on VxRail Appliances, is optimized for smaller deployments and provides an upgrade path for existing EHC customers to vRealize Automation 7.1, which brings simplified infrastructure and application provisioning, with granular, end-to-end financial tracking.

For me, there were two key takeaways from SAP’s Field Kickoff Meeting:
- SAP is in best shape and will drive Digital Transformation from the application side. All statistics I’ve seen are in sync with the predictions from the technology perspective (see my latest blog post)
- SAP is investing heavily in IoT (€2 billion over five years. Named SAP Leonardo, SAP’s IoT portfolio takes its name from a figure known for ushering in a groundbreaking era of science and discovery. Announcement see here.
Sometimes it’s a good idea to take a break and think… For example about the global IT workload distribution over the next years and the driving technology behind.
The message from the graph is crystal clear:
EMC and VMware have combined forces to take converged and hyper-converged infrastructure to the next level. As a result of their exclusive partnership they launched the VCE VxRail hyper-converged appliance, delivering virtualization, compute, storage, networking and data protection in an agile, scalable, easy to manage 2U, 4-Node, SDDC Building Block. So let’s have a closer look at some of the highlights. And before getting into the specifics of the VxRail SDDC Building Block I’d like to emphasize the big picture with the 5 accelerators that will lead to a quantum leap in your data center.
If you are looking for a Lego approach to build VMware’s Software-Defined Data Center efficiently, then EVO SDDC will be the right choice for you. This turnkey, hyper-converged solution enables the Software-Defined Data Center for you within a few hours.
