As Dell has matured in the Enterprise space and become a true end-to-end solutions provider—which has both the ability and desire to innovate across technologies like no other—I felt like now was the time to make a move. The opportunity to help guide Dell’s enterprise architecture as it creates solutions for the next 25 years in an environment that is not encumbered by the past excites me.
