The Benefits of APEX As-A-Service from Dell

As IT teams at many companies migrate their technology usage to an as-a-Service consumption model, they often find that the focus is on the technology and not the results. That’s why Dell APEX can make such a difference in a company’s technology stack.

APEX allows IT teams to adopt a cloud consumption model while maintaining either on-premise or cloud-based hardware, creating a hybrid cloud or a multi-cloud model. Adopting a cloud consumption model avoids large up-front costs and pays for IT resources as needed. And it enables companies to focus on the outcomes they can achieve instead of their technology.

You want outcome-based solutions that address your business challenges while maintaining flexibility and control.  With our customers, we have found that APEX allows us to continue to be responsive and agile while meeting customer needs and market demands. The multiple consumption model of APEX allows us to offer more customer choices for consuming IT resources.  APEX also enables us to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers through choice and differentiation. 

Among the benefits you can realize through APEX’s as-a-service portfolio are cost efficiency, scalability, flexibility, and agility. APEX helps you reduce costs by switching from a capital expenditure model to an operational expenditure model where you only pay for the IT assets that you need now with the flexibility to scale (up or down) on-demand as business needs dictate.  Efficiency gains can be realized through centralized management which helps reduce complexity, allowing more focus on strategic initiatives vs. day-to-day maintenance.

APEX provides self-service ordering, full lifecycle management, consumption model flexibility – both subscription-based and pay-per-use models – and, for storage, a 90-day money back guarantee.

We expect to see more traditional on-prem solutions move to an APEX consumption model over time and we are in continuous discussion and conversations with our customers about how to help them stay in tune with industry changes.

Determining if Dell APEX is a good fit for you begins with a discovery call to understand your business needs and challenges. We collect data from your IT environment and use this to develop an initial solution architecture. We compare these initial APEX designs to traditional IT consumption models and identify both the pros and the cons of the new model.  Finally, we develop an in-depth, multi-year financial analysis to understand the total cost of ownership of the different models.  We look at this together so you can make an informed business decision as to whether APEX is a good fit for your organization.
