Best Of Breed Conference Preview: Dell EMC's Marius Haas On Channel Plans

When last year's Best Of Breed Conference convened in Orlando, Dell and EMC had just reached agreement on the biggest acquisition in the history of the information technology industry.

A year later, the deal is done and the two companies have been one – at least legally – for about six weeks. And at next week's Best of Breed Conference – which will be held Monday and Tuesday in Atlanta – Dell EMC's president and chief commercial officer, Marius Haas (pictured), will be one of three IT industry vendor executives who will be interviewed Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, the parent of IT Best Of Breed.

In this video clip, CRN's Matt Brown, who covers Dell, talks about Haas' role, his background, and what partners of both Dell and EMC might expect in the coming months as the two vendors' channel programs come together.
