EMC World 2016 was the last such conference of that name. Next year, the show will be called Dell EMC World and will be at the Venetian/Palazzo/Sands Expo Center, combining Dell people and products and the 10,000 EMC customers and partners who filled the conference halls this past week. There was no question about the passing of the baton on the morning of Day 1, when longtime EMC CEO and Chairman Joe Tucci and Dell founder and CEO Michael Dell shook hands to a standing ovation (see Slide 2). When Dell patted Tucci on the back and Tucci left the stage, the newly renamed Dell Technologies (see Slide 3) started looking ahead to a new era. The theme for the four-day conference was a simple one: Modernize. This was a not-too-subtle suggestion to customers to stick to the conventional three-year IT hardware buying cycle, by which most companies set their budgets. There were a number of other highlights at the May 2-5 event, and we take a look at the most important ones in this eWEEK slide show.
