Dell EMC has recently gone on record to discuss their preparations for the UK’s departure from the European Union. In an interview with CRN magazine, UK channel VP Rob Tomlin, revealed that the company has enough stock in place to cover up to eight weeks of disruption. 

According to Tomlin, Dell EMC has been working with distributors to ensure stock is on hand to satisfy immediate customer demand, whatever the final Brexit outcome may be. This is great news for any UK organization planning to purchase new equipment over the coming months.

Getting your own Brexit plans in order

Other OEMs are undoubtedly making similar plans, although few are saying exactly what they are. It seems highly likely that CTOs will be able to acquire the new equipment they need as Britain and the EU negotiate their future relationship. 

All organizations inside and outside the UK could benefit from similar continuity plans to overcome potential supply chain issues in the future. How would your business cope without access to new storage hardware when required?

One solution is to identify a trusted partner who can help provide stop-gap assistance. Here at CDS, we provide interim support for pre- and post-warranty storage arrays and servers, giving our customers a way to keep their systems running when new hardware is delayed or unavailable.

In fact, our maintenance services can extend the lifespan of your storage systems for several years. So no matter how long it takes for the politicians to get themselves sorted out, you can be sure that your systems are fully protected for the duration of the negotiations. 

Whether you are affected by Brexit or not, it makes sense to look at how your business would manage in the event of an equipment shortage. Give CDS a call today to discuss your options and how we can help your business navigate political uncertainty without affecting operations.
