About this Episode

Day one of Dell Technologies World 2019 has just concluded, and Matt & Steve from Moor Insights & Strategy provide a quick recap of the day's events, from serving humanity to VMWare everywhere.

The first day of Dell Tech World usually lays out the major themes that we should expect to hear through the four days of the conference, before the more product-focused announcements kick in on Tuesday. This year it's all about Dell Technologies being a global leader, and taking that leadership seriously. There were panels on diversity, and consistent messages about providing the technology that makes the world a better place.

That's not to say there wasn't news: Microsoft CEO stood on a stage with Pat Gelsinger and sang the praises of VMWare and Azure working better together as he described a new Microsoft offering (who would have ever imagined that one?). VMWare takes their dominance very seriously, and is making moves to protect that. Dell EMC has embraced VMWare, and is telling a "better together" story that we're not sure we've heard before.

And that Michael Dell -- he was everywhere. He continues to be one of the most accessible (and least scripted) technology CEOs in the industry.

Spend 15 minutes with Matt Kimball and Steve McDowell, hear all about it.
