Podcast #100: Dell Technologies World Highlights with Caitlin Gordon

by Harold Fritts

While Brian was in Las Vegas attending Dell Technologies World at the beginning of May, he visited with Caitlin Gordon to have a conversation about products, direction, growth, and generally catch up. Caitlin is Dell Technologies Vice President of Product Management and had plenty of insight into the path of Dell’s product lineup. She spoke to as-a-Service offerings but also addressed questions regarding some hardware refreshes and all else of what’s new at Dell Technologies World 2022.

Caitlin and Brian have worked together for many years, so this conversation was very relaxed and informative. Caitlin touched on cyber threats, Ransomware, the impact on customers, and hardware updates for PowerFlex, PowerStore, and PowerMax. There was also a discussion around mobile cloud and Project Alpine.
