It’s a journey that began over a generation ago, in Michael Dell’s University of Texas dorm room. He believed he could provide customers with more powerful technology at a better value by rethinking how computers were manufactured and delivered. Around the same time, Richard Egan and Roger Marino started EMC; first delivering compatible memory boards with higher reliability, then delivering data storage solutions scalable to enterprise level. These journeys completely changed the way the world sources, builds and sells technology. For Dell, it was selling technology directly to people, rather than through retail outlets. For EMC, it was Symmetrix, a data storage solution that transformed the way data centers operated in large enterprises. By the new millennium, both Dell and EMC were market leaders.
