Chad Sakac is President of VCE, EMC’s Converged Platforms Division. With revenues of $24.4 billion in 2014 and more than 68,000 people worldwide, EMC is a global leader in enabling business and service providers to transform their operations and deliver IT as a service. Fundamental to this transformation is cloud computing. Through innovative products and services, EMC accelerates the journey to cloud computing, helping IT departments to store, manage, protect and analyze their most valuable asset—information—in a more agile, trusted and cost-efficient way.
EMC’s Converged Platform Division, VCE, focuses on delivering turnkey converged platforms (both infrastructure and solutions) for customers who are looking to simplify and accelerate their business by consuming technology stacks versus trying to assemble components. The division is comprised of two main elements. The first is the Converged Infrastructure business, which is the industry leader with solutions including Vblock, VxRack, and VxRail – turnkey infrastructure for every workload, every scale, and every vertical. The second is the Converged Solution business, which delivers turnkey solutions including the Enterprise Hybrid Cloud, Cloud Native Application stack, and Data Lake solutions – leveraging technology from across EMC, VMware and Pivotal. Sakac oversees all aspects of the business, including product development and management, finance, marketing and sales.
In addition to leading VCE, Sakac also leads the Global Systems Engineering team at EMC – a group of passionate technologists who interface with customers and partners and build the right, winning, end-to-end solutions. Prior to leading EMC’s Converged Platforms Division and the Global Systems Engineering teams at EMC, Sakac led the EMC VMware Alliance, go-to-market, and integration engineering team, and before that led the EMC Mid-Market Application Solutions Specialist team. Sakac authors one of the top 20 virtualization, cloud, and infrastructure blogs, “Virtual Geek” and is proud to be an Executive Sponsor of EMC’s LGBTA employee circle.
He holds Electrical Engineering and Computer Science degrees from the University of Western Ontario, Canada.
