What role does HCI play in moving to the cloud operating model for both early adopters and new-comers? http://www.via-cc.at...
Can't move to a new operating model if your technology forces you to the old one.
HCI is an organizational test-bed for cloud operating model.
#HCI accelerates integrated operations of compute and storage
key is to bring the cloud model to the data to reduce undifferentiated IT Labor costs
Dell EMC is #1 in hyper-converged and is based on the latest technology and innovation from VxRail, PowerEdge, VMware, and Intel - so if you’re in the market for a server refresh, this is the perfect opportunity to transform your infra
HCI is a critical step towards a cloud operating model, having to manage a 20 year old IT architecture will not get you there any time soon.
breaking the administration silos is key to a successful #Cloud organizational transformation
Big issue for CIO: I can converge technology easier than I can converge my organization.

It's really hard to build a city on quicksand, and the same thing applies to private clouds. The underlying infrastructure needs to be simple, predictable, and automateable (not a word, but should be.) :-)
@VXchad Big issue for CIO: I can converge technology easier than I can converge my organization.
@VXchad Good point, but people do -- and still get good (if not optimal) value.

@VXchad This is the biggest hurdle I've seen. The technology works. Silo'd organizations and operating models are the biggest roadblocks.
technology evolution is easy, processes and people is always hard
it allows you to be more fluid in terms of creating pools of resources (cpu, ram, storage)
if you don't converge operations with #HCI you are missing the biggest opportunity
My favorite result from HCI is hearing all of the new projects and initiatives that customers kick off that they couldn't when they were turning knobs, and fixing things. Security, new apps, modernization!
Agreed, but still HCI catalyzes superior value streams in IT, whether optimized or not. May increase internal IT tension, but app performance/reliability improve day 1.
