Knowledge Sharing is a platform for certified Dell Technologies Proven Professionals to submit articles that showcase their expertise, unique deployments, best practices, or any relevant topic of interest.
Each year, the program invites certified Proven Professionals to demonstrate their thought-leadership by participating in a Knowledge Sharing competition, a fun, and slightly competitive way of sharing the vast amount of knowledge among our certified audience. Authors whose articles are selected by our panel of judges are recognized and awarded at our Dell Technologies Proven Professional Knowledge Sharing award ceremony during Dell Technologies World.
Today, the Knowledge Sharing Library is host to 500+ articles and videos covering topics from Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Cloud Computing & Security, Storage platforms and more. We are nearing 3 million downloads from the KS Library, a true testament to the power of sharing knowledge.
Ready to join the community of published authors? Competitions generally run October – May.
1st Place - 2021 Knowledge Sharing Competition
How Computer Science Helps Car Technology
In this Knowledge Sharing article, awarded 1st Place in the 2021 Knowledge Sharing Competition, Bruce Yellin examines the innovations coming in computing automotive technology that will transform the way we drive.
Bruce takes the reader on a journey of how vehicles used to work and how they work today with the infusion of microprocessors. His narrative is discussed in a clear, accurate way to provide a fresh view of the changes occurring in your driveway and the way the automobile is becoming a platform for technology.
2nd Place - 2021 Knowledge Sharing Competition
Can Technology Reshape Americas Election System?
In this Knowledge Sharing article, awarded 2nd Place in the 2021 Knowledge Sharing Competition, Bruce Yellin examines the challenges faced by IT voting systems and what can be done to improve them to help voters make informed and rational decisions imperative to America’s future.
Bruce discusses the current state of elections and the specter of fraud that threatens to undermine our constitutional rights. He also explores questions on support for smart device voting, ways to end long polling lines, and how our government security officials attempt to and often succeed at preventing cyberterrorists from influencing our rights.

DPUs: Acceleration Through Disaggregation
Senior Advisor, Sales Engineer Analyst
Sales Engineer Analyst
Senior Advisor, Customer/Technical Training
Sales Engineer Analyst, Data Protection Solutions
For years, the computing industry was dominated by the traditional x86 central processing unit (CPU)-centric architecture. Introduction of the Data Processing Unit (DPU) empowers us to rethink data centers around their most precious commodity – the data itself – putting us on the path to a true data-centric model.
In this Knowledge Sharing article, awarded 3rd Place in the 2021 Knowledge Sharing Competition, Hussein Baligh, Sameh Talaat, Ebrahim Serag, and Yehia Gaballah examine revolutionary use cases enhanced by the DPU, such as Hyperscale Cloud, Next Gen Networking, Next Gen Storage and GPU/Compute.

In the wake of COVID-19 cloud migration has become the key component of IT service strategy. In this Knowledge Sharing article, awarded Best of IT Transformation in the 2021 Knowledge Sharing Competition, Mikhail Gloukhovtsev goes in-depth to help readers understand how AI transforms traditional IT services and enable them to develop AI-powered IT service strategies post-COVID-19.
Mikhail discusses how AIOps plays a major role in cloud migration success, demonstrates how AI enables cloud operations (CloudOps) efficiency and considers the emerging concept of Edge AI, recognizing the move to remote working caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Best of Quantum Computing
Quantum Computing as a Savior (QCaaS)
Senior Presales Solution Architect
Business Operations Analyst
In this Knowledge Sharing article, awarded Best of Quantum Computing in the 2021 Knowledge Sharing Competition, Malik Radwan and Aly Hussein introduce the ‘Quantum Computing as a Service’ (QCaaS) model along with its various use cases currently open to the public.
Bridging classical computing and the vast possibilities of the quantum computing realm, the authors examine the principles of QCaaS and its underlying infrastructure, unveil the current progress of hardware, algorithms and ‘as a Service’ offerings currently in use, and discuss current challenges and stumbling blocks.
Data Protection Advisor (DPA) is more than just basic backup reporting; it includes an analytic engine which can inspect data protection activities, run them against a set of predefined rules and enable compliance-based reporting to help organisations determine data protection risk exposure. This article offers a deeper understanding of the power of DPA, how reports are created – Including, a section on how reports can be customized to meet the specific requirements – and what business insights can be gleaned from them.
The need to clone data is normally driven by a requirement for additional protection or the need to move data to a specific media type or location. In both cases, the priority is to secure the data as quickly as possible. Cloning and staging enables more effective use of storage devices by moving data between different types of devices. This article explains how to achieve two backup copies without Clone Controlled Replication (CCR).
