General session hightlights

Dell EMC World Austin, October 18-20, was the first ever Dell EMC World.

Watch highlights from three days of innovation including speakers, new product announcements and customer experiences.


Dell EMC Word closing keynote (Part 3): Tien Tzuo

Tien Tzuo, Chief Executive Officer of Zuora, explains how the social side and the technology side of innovation come together in practice.

He considers there’s never been a better time to innovate. In the last 15 years, 52% of Fortune 500 companies no longer exist.

Traditional companies like General Electric used to innovate by focusing on product innovation. Now, GE wants to become a digital company to provide services for their customers.

Innovation is not about products. It’s about the customer and how businesses create relationships with their customers. As users, we don’t care about the product anymore we expect outcomes, we expect experiences that deliver on the things that we need. This means we are moving away from the product economy to a subscription economy model.

The implication is that the whole way of thinking about our business changes and we need to think about customers as subscribers.


Dell EMC Word closing keynote (Part 2): Kevin Kelly

Kevin Kelly is the founding executive editor of Wired magazine. Kelly is a visionary author with several New York Times best-sellers, including, “The Inevitable, Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future.”

Kevin Kelly has a different perspective on innovation and where we go as a society. To think about the future, Kevin Kelly proposes to ask questions that leverage a good answer but also spark other questions to help expand our knowledge. In this session, Kevin Kelly uses these 4 questions to answer what will happen in the future:

1. What would you do if you had 1,000 minds working for you 24/7? Artificial power and intelligence makes it possible!

2. What makes great experiences? Virtual reality or Internet of experiences open a new era where experiences become the new currency

3. What can be accessed rather than owned? Gain access to a product or a service then you can give it back; this is preferred over ownership. We are transitioning from products to services.

4. What can you do with a billion people simultaneously in real time? With examples like Facebook and Wikipedia, we realize that sharing, collaboration, cooperation, and social platforms are key for our future.

The greatest products of the next 20 years have not been invented yet. You’re not late to innovate!


Dell EMC Word closing keynote (Part 1): Malcom Gladwell

Dell EMC World attendees value innovation.

Malcom Gladwell explains what takes to be a successful innovator using real-life examples.

Five-time bestselling author and IT visionary Malcolm Gladwell explains what it takes to be an innovator; what the social side of innovation looks like, and how individuals and organizations can inspire innovation.

Gladwell identifies two parts to innovation: what innovation is and the context where innovation occurs.

Innovators must exercise operational risk-taking and attempt new strategies. Innovators also must take social risks. An innovator needs to navigate a tortuous social terrain to bring innovation to fruition.

Gladwell emphasizes that truly successful innovators have these character traits: they are open, and creative; they are conscientious and capable of following through to execute on their ideas; and they are disagreeable since they do not require the approval of others to do what it takes to succeed. Gladwell says there is an almost unbearable stage when the rest of the world thinks innovators are crazy.
