Dell, EMC merger forms world’s largest privately-controlled tech company
By Digital News Asia September 9, 2016
- Comprises unique family of businesses including Dell and Dell EMC
- Blends Dell’s go-to-market strength with SMEs and EMC’s strength with large enterprises
DELL Technologies has completed the acquisition of EMC Corporation, creating a unique family of businesses that provides the essential infrastructure for organisations to build their digital future, transform IT and protect their most important asset, information.
This combination creates a US$74 billion (RM300 billion) company with a technology portfolio that solves complex problems for customers in the areas of hybrid cloud, software-defined data center, converged infrastructure, platform-as-a-service, data analytics, mobility and cybersecurity.
Dell Technologies serves 98% of the Fortune 500 and comprises several market leading businesses.
The two largest, and most well-known, are the Dell client solutions business and the Dell EMC infrastructure solutions business – both of which are supported by Dell EMC Services.
In addition, Dell Technologies contains Boomi, Pivotal, RSA, SecureWorks, Virtustream and VMware.
This structure combines the focus and innovation of a startup with the global scale and service of a large enterprise.
Dell Technologies’ scale will enable it to deliver more innovation and investment in R&D, sales and marketing, services and support and deliver more efficient and cost-effective solutions for customers.
While the company will publically report its financial results, it is privately controlled, enabling it to better focus investments on its customer and partner ecosystem over the long term.
Dell Technologies chairman and CEO Michael Dell said, "We are at the dawn of the next industrial revolution. Our world is becoming more intelligent and more connected by the minute, and ultimately will become intertwined with a vast Internet of Things, paving the way for our customers to do incredible things."
Dell Technologies blends Dell’s go-to-market strength with small business and mid-market customers and EMC’s strength with large enterprises and stands as a market leader in many of the most important and high-growth areas of the US$2 trillion information technology market.
