Dell’s dream to acquire EMC has last month bagged the permission of the European Commission and US Federal Trade Commission. Now, all that’s left for the acquisition to move forward is to get the shareholder vote.
By the end of this week, Dell is said to acquire the required number of votes in favor of the acquisition. As the outcome is expected to be 100 percent positive, Dell/EMC deal has full potential to dramatically change the way IT customers will think of its vendors.
If at all Dell succeeds in acquiring EMC for $67 billion, then the merger will lead to the most complete IT portfolio in the market and that includes:
- Big data and analytics
- Backup and archiving
- Cloud platforms for the enterprise
- Content Management
- Converged Infrastructure
- End User Computing
- Governance, risk and compliance
- Hyper Converged Infrastructure
- Information Governance
- Virtualization and Management solutions possible by VMware, as the said virtualization giant- a subsidiary of EMC, will become a part of the merger.
