Best Operating Practices Tool for VxBlock™ Systems and Vblock® Systems

Use the Best Operating Practices Tool to consolidate recommended actions that maximize/optimize a Converged Systems investment and track your progress toward implementing or achieving the best practice.


This tool is intended for investment decision makers or IT leaders who want to ensure their organization is taking the right steps to maximize their converged infrastructure investment. Investment decision makers likely will not execute the details of implementing best practices but the tool provides a way to monitor whether recommendations are being implemented and followed.

The tool contains terminology that is well-understood or can easily be mastered. It is flexible, allowing you to easily opt out of tracking a recommended best practice or add additional value drivers to monitor. The framework is based on SMART goal-setting principles. Each value driver is expressed in a way that is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant to driving value, and Timebound with regard to improving scores.

Although Dell EMC can be engaged to assist in identifying and monitoring best practices, the tool is designed to be used without assistance from Dell EMC or partners. Dell EMC can identify how our products or services can assist you in more rapidly implementing a best practice to maximize value.
